May events: Push boundaries at the London Burlesque Festival

London, Greater London

Witness the world’s most diverse artists and performers from the risqué world of Burlesque.

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or an intrigued newcomer, this 10-day festival (held each May) is guaranteed to give you a tantalising taste of the glittery, glamourous world of burlesque. As the lights go down, the curtains slide back, and the music starts, prepare to be shown anything from an avant garde striptease to a sultry cabaret show, plus circus acts with a decidedly sexy yet tasteful edge.

This isn’t a festival for the prudish, as the schedule put in place by producer Chaz Royal will have innuendos flying long after the feathers have cleared and the equally glamourous audience has gone home. Regularly voted as one of London's best annual events, this is not to be missed!

London Burlesque Festival 2019 takes place in selected weekends in April, May and June. Information and tickets to all events can be found on the festival's website.
