Ever been stuck in London without knowing where the nearest burlesque cabaret show is or where to buy vintage lingerie? Well worry no longer as the good people at PictureRama Publishing have compiled the Burlesque Map of London, now available in its 4th edition.
This map, covering Uxbridge to Leytonstone and Camden to Clapham, lists over 200 different businesses – Clubs, bars, events, hotels, markets, shops, shows and even services and societies that make this great big London Burlesque community.
Thankfully, London nowadays is booming with burlesque and cabaret shows, and burlesque fashion is widely available. It’s no longer admired and enjoyed just by connoisseurs, but the variety allows every person who’s slightly interested in this fascinating world to find their spot.
But why stop in London? This map has a special section dedicated to other European cities and their unique burlesque festivals, so you can even catch the train to see a show in Brussels.
And extending to other cities aside, this map also reaches out to you online, with an intriguing set of videos named “Cabaret Soup”, which features the map’s cover star, cabaret performer Reuben Kaye.
You can get this map for free in various locations around London, but if you wish to prepare yourselves in advance, you can order it online for £4.
