Secrets of the Boudoir Burlesque launches its 'Premium Event' this year, an event which promises to showcase the best in British burlesque talent from all around the UK, and the line-up for our first show is no exception.

Our headliner won the title of 'Best Burlesque Performer' in the London Cabaret Awards 2012 and has been voted as one of the Top 30 Worldwide burlesque performers, as well as one of the Top 5 UK-based burlesque performers.  She is one of only seven UK performers to make the coveted 'Who's Who in Burlesque' in the international publication, 'Burlesque Bible.'  You know you are in for something really special when this performer is headlining the bill.  Time Out Magazine describes her as "Kick-ass burlesque triple-threat Kiki Kaboom - sexy, funny and smart", Kiki's shows are not to be missed!

Next on our bill is the divine Dolly Rose: A burlesque artist in high demand, Miss Dolly Rose is a resident performer at some of London‘s top cabaret venues, and has appeared at events such as Ministry of Burlesque’s High Tease and London Burlesque Festival.

Third on our delectable bill is dancing dream and Secrets show regular: Pansy Cheung.  Pansy is a highly skilled dancer and can choreograph a range of mesmerising pieces to suit any genre.  A skilled bellydancer, fan dancer and veil dancer: Pansy is Sheffield's finest and one of our resident dancers.

Up next is the 'Emerald Inferno' that is Miss Bruise Violet: Since storming onto the scene in 2010, Miss Bruise Violet has been thrilling audiences across London and the South ever since.  Originally from Sheffield, Bruise Violet has never actually performed at a Sheffield-based burlesque show...until now...

Fifth on our bill is the Ethereal Constance Peach, who first burst into the North East burlesque scene in July 2010 to rave reviews and many a dropped Jaw. Since then she has delighted many an audience nationally and internationally. With her striking imagery and seductive glare Constance embodies the classical grace of traditional burlesque combined with the modern avant garde influences of today. Constance is well known for her heavily adorned costumes, magnificent story telling, and powerful stage presence

...Not to mention that our very own Sian De Leir has got a 'girl crush' on her...

Last, but by no means least is Secrets' very own 'man toy' Mr Duke O'Growl. Described as having “a voice to bewilder” by Sheffield Music Scene Magazine, Duke can boast that he has sang for Royalty, including Princes William and Harry, amongst his recent achievements.  Classy, soulful and handsome with a cheeky charm that has made him a Secrets favourite and regular.  He will growl into a microphone for your pleasure all night long...

Compered by Secrets' resident Compere...none other than 'the man in fishnets' Mr Warren Peace himself: From his early days in 1930’s Berlin, Warren Peace was recognised as the ultimate performer of risqué cabaret. Taking his influences from Victorian British music hall, chanson Francais, and French burlesque, Peace captivated the audiences of Weimar Berlin between the wars. After escaping Nazi Berlin, and following a world tour taking in New York, Paris and Prague, he returned to his Sheffield roots, seemingly younger than ever before. He can now been seen as resident compere at 'Secrets of the Boudiour Burlesque' and curator of the Cabaret tent at Gay Pride.

...Warren Peace has been reportedly sighted in the most unlikely of places...
