It’s Queenstown’s sauciest annual show.

The Valentine’s Burlesque Ball’s on again this Saturday night at Queenstown Memorial Centre.

Organiser and burlesque dancer, Queenstowner Oblivion Westwood (left), says this year
‘‘it’s more variety show than just burlesque’’.

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘‘We’ve also got comedy, drag, circus and cabaret.’’

The ball’s attracted a record 16 performers, some doing two acts, from as far away as Auckland.

‘‘We’ve got some good talent this year,’’ Westwood says.

‘‘A lot of people obviously can’t travel so we’ve got a lot of people who have been performing overseas who are now back home.’’

The show starts at 8pm – tickets cost from $50, plus fees, from eventfinda.
