Dazzling Brighton Burlesque Scene

The Dazzling Brighton Burlesque Scene

Glamour, sequins, sparkles and tassels – what’s not to love about burlesque?

Burlesque is having a big revival and there is no better place to go to a burlesque show than in Brighton.

The burlesque scene in Brighton is thriving, with regular shows, burlesque classes and some big burlesque stars are based here.

If you want to go to a show during your trip to Brighton, here are some of the main events that you should see.

The Sassy Cabaret Club

Run by the enchanting Betty Nails, the Sassy Cabaret Club puts on regular shows with some of the best burlesque stars on the scene. Sassy Cabaret is a favourite in the Brighton calendar and not to be missed if there is a show while you are in town.


Burlez is “a queer night for girls who like girls.” If you identify as queer you will love this fabulous, sexy night. You will get to see many of the top queer performers, including Queerlesque Queen, Rubyyy Jones.

Female Trouble

Brighton’s first femme Drag Queen night put on regular, fabulous shows for those who love drag and love femme. If you’re not sure what femme drag is and if you’ll like it…..just go along to a show and find out. We know you will absolutely love it.

FAT Cabaret

Keep your eyes peeled at the Marlborough Theatre for FAT Cabaret. It does what it says on the tin - it is a cabaret show where all the performers are fat. It is a safe and supportive environment showcasing the most talented, curvaceous performers on the scene.

Hundred Watt Club

The Hundred Watt Club put on burlesque and cabaret shows across the South East. Performers include burlesque dancers, side show acts and circus performer.
