Royston Vasey Memories
An interesting picture from the 1907 Venus Kalipygos Trophy of Monsieur Aristide Tournachon and his Royston Vasey born partner Antoinette (Annie Bridges), the exotic dancers. Aristide wanted Antoinette to enter for the trophy as he was convinced that she could win, having become familiar with the merits of the part in question during their dancing together. They were appearing at the time at The Apothecary’s Hall in Pontefract and he cunningly talked her into visiting her mother in Royston Vasey on the day of the contest. She refused to go into the Village Hall when she found out what he was up to so he got her in a headlock and carried her in, with the part in question to the fore, which was when this picture was taken. I am happy to say that there WAS an happy ending and she did win and forgave Aristide and in fact used her victory in their billing after this.

ROYSTON VASEY MEMORIES
I was delighted to see this on Ma Chere Ami’s page as it was taken on the occasion of the only triple tie in the history of the Kalipygos  Trophy.  It happened the year the Trophy was opened up to the local villages of Thongsbridge, Upperthong and Netherthong as well as Royston Vasey. The D’Egree triplets, from Netherthong Hall  entered and as you would expect their rears were identical. The Judges did hope to find some slight differences in the mobility section, where the competitors have to rotate their posteriors in time to music, but even superimposing three videos of their rotating rears on the screen failed to differentiate between them. The result was delayed overnight while Master Li made some special measuring devices to find any trace of a difference but there were none even to a thousandth of an inch.It  should be mentioned here that Master Li had to be completely banned from the building while the mobility event was taking place as back when the Butterfield Twins took part as he became over excited in the mobility section, the sight of the twins rear ends gyrating in unison was too much for him and he had to be sedated by Dr Bradbury Winter. Just the THOUGHT of the triplets rear ends in synchronised rotation was enough to require sedation again.The triplets held the trophy jointly and had a successful career round the clubs as The Three D’Egree’s touring with The Fabulous Clogiron Brothers.

"Wearing High Heels Can Ruin Your Posture" says Dr Bradbury-Winter and cites the cases of Miss Arethusa Hepplewhite (left) and Miss Nellie Bickersdyke which show the effects of High Heel wearing.
With all due respect to the Learned Doctor I think he will find that they have adopted this posture to maximise the visual impact of their delightful derrieres in the run up to this years Venus Kalipygos Trophy.
Note:— The Venus Kalipygos Trophy was presented by The Dreadnought Corset Company for the annual Kallipygian competition. It goes to the lady who in the opinion of the judges has the shapeliest and most active posterior. The current judges  are Mr A.C.Pitt-Rivers, Dr Bradbury Winter and Master Li.

There is a strong rumour going the rounds in Royston Vasey that the TV Presenter Carol Vorderman is to buy a home in the village so that she will be able to enter this years Venus Kalipygos Trophy which is only open to residents of Royston Vasey and certain surrounding villages. As Venus Kalipygos Trophy judge Dr Bradbury-Winter said to our reporter “Judging by photographs she seems to be very well equipped at the rear end, a lot will depend how flexible it is in the mobility section, where the competitors have to rotate their posteriors in time to music,.”There is considerable excitement at the Mason’s Arms, not only at the prospect of seeing Ms Vordermans best feature in the flesh, but that she may join the Mason’s Pub Quiz team where her mathematical knowledge could come in very handy and do away with the need for certain members to take off their shoes and socks when a question involving sums comes up.

Annie’s  Paparrazzi problems It would appear that since she won the Venus Kallipygos Trophy the fame of annie52’s peerless posterior has spread further than we imagined. These photographs of her delightful derriere appeared recently in an Italian newspaper. Annie had no idea they were being taken and knew nothing about until the Preston Post rang her up to say she was on the shortlist for Rear of the Year and mentioned the pictures. Since then she has been asked to appear on Celebrity Mastermind where her specialist subject is to be Chocolates . An annoying by- product of her fame is that when she is playing golf a huge crowd follow her round the course waiting for the moment when she bends to pick the ball out of the hole. Fortunately these moments have been few and far between as so far she is concentrating on hitting the ball at all, the bit about getting it in the hole she is leaving till later.

ROYSTON VASEY NOTES AND NEWS
Since Annie mentioned her prizewinning posterior HERE I have had a number of enquiries as to which prize it one. Well it won the big one, the  Venus Kallipygos Trophy. For the benefit of those hat did not see the original report I reprint it below:—-
Preston Woman Wins Prestigious Trophy. Annie 52 from Preston today won the The Venus Kallipygos Trophy against strong competition. Annie has a holiday home in Royston Vasey which qualifies her to take part in the event. The Trophy was presented by The Dreadnought Corset Company for the annual Kallipygian competition. It goes to the lady who in the opinion of the judges has the shapeliest and most active posterior. The judges were Mr A.C.Pitt-Rivers, Dr Bradbury Winter and Master Li. Unfortunately Master Li could only take part in the judging of the contour section as he became over excited in the mobility section, where the competitors have to rotate their posteriors in time to music, the sight of the twins rear ends gyrating in unison was too much for him and he had to be sedated by Dr Bradbury Winter. In second place was Heufimia Winpenny and joint third the Butterfield twins, Viola Augustina and Rubina Augustina. The Trophy, a small replica of the statue by Clérion (1686) was presented by old Mrs Bagshaw who boasts the largest posterior in Royston Vasey if not the shapeliest. The winner said that she owed her success to a stringent diet of chocolate and swinging a golf club, which developed her prize winning wiggle. She added that when she managed to connect with the ball she would add walking as well. ( Note:- callipygian is defined as “having shapely buttocks ) The Venus Kallipygos Trophy
