An Evening of Burlesque at the Charter Theatre

Preston’s Charter Theatre hosts a saucy worldwide hit next month.

Now in its fourth year, An Evening of Burlesque is the world’s original – and the UK’s biggest – touring burlesque spectacular, seen so far by one quarter of a million people.

The show has taken the cream of London’s thriving West End burlesque scene to the world.

From Milan to Zurich, St Petersburg to Minsk, Leipzig to Verona, Dresden to Riga, Padova to Dessau the reaction is the same – “absolutely incredible”, says show producer Michael Taylor.

An Evening of Burlesque features corsets, killer heels and stockings aplenty – and that’s just the theatregoers who come to see the show.

“It might come as a surprise but audiences are predominantly female,” says Michael. “There is even a prize for the best-dressed member of the audience!”

An Evening of Burlesque at the Charter Theatre on Saturday November 15 from 7.30pm. Tickets £23 concs £22. www.prestonguildhall.com/.
