The London Burlesque festival was founded in 2006 by producer and burlesque pioneer, Chaz Royal. Held in May every year The London Burlesque Festival spans an impressive number of days which seems to be on the increase every year. In 2013 the London burlesque shows were held over a period of 10 days and in 2015 that number has increased yet again to a burlesque extravaganza lasting 17 days.
Events are hosted at venues around London and the main regular venue is burlesque club Madame Jojo’s. Performers are organised into different events according to the genre of burlesque style. For example the Boylesk Revue, the Twisted Cabaret and the Hollywood Revue which are regular nights seen every year at the London Burlesque Festival.
