More than 33 burlesque artists are already signed to take part in this year’s Hebden Bridge Burleque Festival.

And headlining this annual event that just gets bigger each year is the US perormer Perle Noire, whose unique and dynamic style has earned her a spot with Dita Von Teese’s Strip Strip Hooray Tour and numerous awards from the Burlesque Hall of Fame Miss Exotic World Competition.

“It’s a real coup for the Festival to have secured Perle as our headliner - she is one of the biggest names in Burlesque,” say co-producers and performers Lady Wildflower and Heidi Bang Tidy.

“We are determined that this year - in spite of all four of our venues being hit by the recent floods - the Festival will be bigger and better than ever.”

Shows will be held at a number of venues including The Little Theatre and Ribbon Circus in Hebden Bridge, Mytholmroyd Community Centre and Todmorden Hippodrome.

A number of Workshops and a burlesque fair will make this a truly interactive extravanganza.

lTickets for performances and entry to workshops are available on the festival website - www.
