London Burlesque FestivalMadame JoJo's may have sadly closed but that doesn't mean burlesque is a dying art - for the London Burlesque Festival returns and is running for an extended period (increased from ten days to two weeks) in 2015, 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 two weeks of raucous exotic entertainment showcasing the very best in British burlesque and beyond. Taking place at more venues than last year - Dingwalls, The Grand Hall, Kings Cross, Fiddlers Elbow, Bush Hall 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 Conway Hall

Conway Hall is a landmark of London's independent intellectual, political and cultural life. Completed in 1929 at a cost of about £45,000, the name was chosen in honour of Moncure Daniel Conway, anti-slavery advocate, out-spoken supporter of free thought and biographer of Thomas Paine.
