A little more… of a little less.

23rd Jun 2017

Come down to the Underbelly Festival to see a little more… of performers in a little less – this is our Burlesque Round-Up. 

From bawdy beginnings in music halls where flesh coloured tights were the limit to what went on show, to the louche and luxurious removals of modern day burlesque star Dita Von Teese; burlesque has changed with the times but has never been stripped of what makes us love it – the desire to always see more.
Our line-up of burlesque caters for all. Whether you want to see some cheeky cheeks, something weird and wonderful or the down right debauched, the Underbelly Festival is THE place for burlesque in London this summer.
