Described as a ‘variety show with an alternative edge’ and featuring some of the very best performers on the UK and international burlesque circuit, Kinky & Quirky’s events promise a riot of colour, show and spectacle, and at the Riviera Centre on July 5th they delivered a highly entertaining display of burlesque, juggling, hula-hooping, tap dancing, comedy and live music.
