It is time to treat ourselves to some sizzling entertainment, flashing lights and beautifully manufactured costumes. You heard right; we at The Amazing Blog, are returning to the Clapham Grand this November for the City Academy’s premier burlesque show - RevueLesque.

This show combines cabaret with can-can, with a cast of 23 powerful women performing a range of mind-blowing dances from traditional to modern burlesque. The artists are business professionals during the day that seek to inspire their audiences at night, offering a new perspective on burlesque and female freedom of expression. We have no doubt that your senses will be enlightened. With its 5th show right around the corner, the revival of the burlesque is hard to unsee. The City Academy is known for its adult creative and performing arts courses across London, including two burlesque companies.

Suzy Molnar, founder of RevueLesque and Head of Commercial and World Dance, tells us “We return to Clapham Grand for a second time- with brand new content that we’ve been working hard on all year. I believe this will be our best show yet.”

Time For Tease

At The Amazing Blog we love featuring events and places our lovely readers could go to on the weekends. When we found out about a British afternoon tea with the glamour of burlesque and cabaret, we knew we had to feature Time For Tease. zoecup2

It all began back in 2006 with Afternoon Tease! at Voluptéin London’s Chancery Lane – the perfect venue for Time for Tease to go and play. The very first Afternoon Tease! was fully booked and continues being as successful nowadays.

Afternoon Tease! is now one of the UK’s longest running and most famous burlesque events and remains the original and best teatime revue of its kind. If you’d like to experience Time For Tease for yourself, it happens on the first and third Saturday of the month and on the second and fourth Sundays of the month at Volupté. Afternoon tea (sándwiches, scones and homemade cakes) as well as the burlesque show and a glass of fizz for £42 per person.
