For O Dreamland she will be appearing in the guise of her alter-ego Dame Batlove (see pictures above) who will be performing psychic sessions in a marquee on the beach with the help of paint and fortune telling fish.
Dame Batlove will be appearing at O Dreamland on Sat 25 and Mon 27 Aug. See programme for more details.
