This London festival of neo-burlesque variety and striptease hits the capital for nine nights of glamorous shows and titillation with 100 performers, including UK premieres and top international acts – the global flavour takes in everything from ‘Best of British’ to ‘Shanghai Surprise’.

Jim Rose, of the infamous Jim Rose Circus (guys hanging massive weights off their nuts and doing things you wouldn’t believe with their unnervingly flexible, contorting bodies), headlines the final four evenings.
