It's Almost Here! | The NZ Burlesque Festival 2017

Glamour, Glitz, Nudity and Education?

The infamous New Zealand Burlesque Festival returns in just two weeks!
Experience unparalleled opportunities for rubbing shoulders with mesmerising local and international burlesque stars. Workshops, movie premieres and three nights of dazzling shows and after parties are sure to leave you dazed, delighted, and covered in glitter.

I have an amazing time at this every year. I've competed for Queen of Festival, watched my love Duke Debonair take out the title of King, made lifelong friends and learnt so much. Even if you've never seen a burlesque show, you'll have an absolute blast!

Click me for the festival schedule and get your tickets before they run out!
