BurlyCamp 2012


BurlyCamp is an exciting new event produced by and for the London burlesque community. Taking place at the gorgeous surroundings of Hoxton Hall on the 19th-20th May 2012, BurlyCamp will provide an opportunity to discover or develop your Burlesque persona with two days of skills workshops, performances, vintage crafts and classes.

Whether you're new to burlesque performing or are hoping to take your career to the next level, BurlyCamp will have workshops to educate and inspire you.

Even if you can't quite imagine yourself on the stage, you can simply come along for fun, or perhaps to learn some craft skills to help out your new burly friends. BurlyCamp is open to women and men of any age, so come and join us for a weekend to remember!
