Testimonial

  • The GBF is an action packed weekend with top Burlesque talent from around the globe. I was lucky enough to perform at the Gala show in 2015, as well as attending some fantastic workshops. The level of talent is unbelievable. It’s definitely one weekend you don’t want to miss!

  • I had the pleasure of performing at the first Galway Burlesque Festival and the standard was unreal. Never had I seen so much talent and variety spread across a fun-filled weekend of glitter, rhinestones, pasties and a whole lotta tease! From the glamorous to the weird and wonderful, this festival is one not to be missed!
