What an amazing night out! This was my first trip to a burlesque night and I will definitely be returning. Tempest Rose is a great host making the night feel like you're out with just a group of your best friends not in a room full of strangers :) The acts were amazing and great variety on show.

We went to this show last night and was truly impressed, best Burlesque evening I've been to for a long while. Tempest Rose has great presence and voice. The acts were excellent - favourites the neon hula girl and the acrobatic aerial hoop. Fab music and audience great fun. Look forward to seeing again 😊

I didn't enjoy this show at all. In fact, we left after the interval. The opening number was quite good, but it was downhill from there. The presenter kept tripping over her words, there was cringe worthy lip-syncing going on from the male dancer (who also looked like he was wearing a diaper under his pants) and most of the acts simply did a bit of dancing and that was it - I would say music videos are raunchier these days than this show was!

I really enjoyed it, but I found it a bit expensive . I was expecting definitively more for my momey. The presenter was fantastic, great sense of humor, fantastic interaction with the audience. On the other hand I found of the acts a bit weak! The presentation and the costumes were really elaborated in general , but some of the dancers fall a bit short. Don't take me wrong in general is a good show, but not for 15 quid!

Gosh - where to start ! The whole show was well produced - brilliant sense of humour - superb acts and (real) women - not a twiggy in sight - ooo er as one might say. Words as they say fail me.......On buying the tickets some six weeks earlier at the Festival Hall one of the assistants suggested that I would see 'plenty of ankles' and in truth 'rather more'... The actors presented a performance during which they teased and tormented - danced like mad and offered very accurate comments on the changing situation for women over the decades - political points very well made - but don't be in anyway put off - well worth the ticket price ! Thanks to the whole company - they made my night....... John
