London Burlesque FestivalPrudes avert your eyes - for the London Burlesque Festival returns for the eight year, brought to you by the infamous King of Burlesque, Chaz Royal, the man behind the hilariously named 'Pavabotti - The Naked Tenor'. What was initially a weekend of glitz, vaudeville and sizzling striptease is now a whole ten nights of raucous exotic entertainment showcasing the very best in British burlesque and beyond. Taking place at Madame JoJo's and Conway Hall, the festival opens and closes with glittering ceremonies. Further highlights include the Best of British, with a display of the most talented and unique burlesque and variety acts from London and the rest of the UK; Hollywood Revive, an evening of star-studded glamour to play tribute to the greatest film stars from the silver screen; and Twisted Cabaret, the weird and wonderful scene of alternative cabaret. The festival also includes the Big Burlesque Day Out at Conway Hall, a day event including a vintage market, music and cocktails. If you crave suspenders, stockings, whips, lace, red lips, lascivious ladies, pert posteriors and a bit of a slap 'n' tickle then this is the event for your diary.

About Madame Jojo's

This was once a sleazy Soho strip club, as the name suggests, and it really shows. Deep reds are the dominant colour, with mirrors, booths and velvet curtains creating an atmosphere of sleazy glamour. This sordid ambience makes it one of Soho's most enjoyable bars, adding a superb frisson to the many excellent early-evening comedy and cabaret nights it hosts. More about Madame Jojo's
