What IS burly Q

Intelligent. Witty. And provocative in all the right ways...

Burly Q is passionate about bringing delightfully daring and escapist entertainment to Sheffield. Blurring the boundaries between burlesque, cabaret, comedy and circus, expect new variety at it’s most vibrant and,

"The best night out you'll ever have!" Exposed Magazine.

Now (dare I say it?) a bit of a Sheffield institution, Burly Q is a night that grew from very humble beginnings in 2009. Back then the goal was a simple one - give Northern burlesque fans the very best burlesque and cabaret experience, rather selfishly, actually, because it was getting expensive having to go all the way to London to get my burlesque fix! It was clear that the only way to do this was to invest heavily in hand-picked casts, featuring only the most innovative, award- winning, international, headlining performers from throughout the U.K. and beyond. Every decision made from there on was based on that simple premise, and, rather unexpectedly, things started to take on a life of their own...

I am now very proud to have produced a huge number of sell out shows over the last 10 years, playing host to some of the most diverse, critically acclaimed performers on the scene, many of whom were on the forefront of the UK neo-burlesque revival. Burly Q Sheffield has showcased performers who have gone on to win awards at the prestigious Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, and be named as some of the most influential performers in the world. Even after all this time I am still excited by burlesque and cabaret- art forms that continue to evolve, defy definition, and aren't limited by rules and conventions - I consider Burly Q Sheffield an evening with both brains and balls!

From the function room at Shakespeares to the Sheffield City Hall Ballroom, via Bar Abbey, Queens Road Social Club, The Memorial Hall, Museums Sheffield, The Lantern Theatre, the Walkley and now the Abbeydale Picture House, there's no doubt it's been a hell of a decade.

If you're yet to experience it for yourself, I'd love to show you what you've been missing. It’s time to dress up, step out and expect the unexpected...

“If you’ve never been to a burlesque night, I urge you to do so – and Burly Q is as good as it gets… what you’ll ultimately get is a grin from ear to ear and a night you’ll not stop talking about,”
