Reigning Miss Exotic World 2013 LouLou D’vil is flying in from Finland to headline the latest show by Elland-based Boo Boopy Doo Burlesque and Cabaret.

According to Amanda Sedgwick one of three women who are building a reputation for hosting top-class burlesque shows - all of which have sold out - the line-up for this event is the biggest and best so far.

LouLou, 30, helped pioneer burlesque in Finland, starting her career in 2008.

Since then she has performed all over the world at popular events like the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend in Las Vegas and The London Burlesque Week.

“She is one of the biggest names on the burlesque scene and has never been to these parts before,” said Amanda. “We’re really excited to have her headlining the show.”

Joining LouLou on the bill at the Victoria Hall in Ripponden on September 14 are Edward Muir, singer Kiki DeVille, Crimson Skye, Duncan Donut and Ginger La Rouge.

Tickets to the show are £15, the £17 VIP seats have already sold out.

Seating is cabaret style and tickets include pie and peas. Doors open at 7.30pm and the show begins at 8pm.

If you fancy learning a few moves LouLou will be holding a Bump ‘N’ Grind Shimmy and Shake workshop the following day at a venue still to be decided.

The class which will cost £40 is promised to make those taking part sweat.

“Anyone who fancies joining in will learn seductive moves from the Fifties in a friendly and supportive atmosphere,” said Amanda. “This will be sexy, retro striptease at its best.”

For more information on either event people are asked to call Rebecca or Amanda Sedgewick at Anon Lingerie, Elland on 01422 379681 or Heidi Holdsworth at Eclipse Beauty on 01422 825374.
