Burlesque Noir, an annual burlesque and cabaret spectacular, hosted sixteen burlesque stars on October 8th at the dazzling Blackpool Tower Ballroom, including New York burlesque headliners Jo Weldon and Medianoche. Jo Weldon is the headmistress of the New York School of Burlesque and author of The Burlesque Handbook, and Medianoche is a Miss Exotic World first runner up.

This year the show was a complete sell out, with VIP tickets snapped up within 40 minutes. Other performers included Burlesque Noir producer Raven Noir, Havana Hurricane, Eliza DeLite, Diva Hollywood, Missy Malone, Lou Safire, Violet Blaze, Cece Sinclair, and emcee Reuben Kaye.

Burlesque Noir also opened its doors to traders this year, offering a sparkling array of stalls selling products, services and gifts.
