Have your say

August 25, 1958, was the start of the last week of entertainment at the Empire Theatre, Portsmouth.

It was in Edinburgh Road where Iceland now is.

Eighteen acts were on the bill including the daring Heaven – billed as The Six International Nudes comprising Lake & Rose, Colleen Laine, The Girls and Models. I doubt they were completely naked but does anyone remember seeing them?
