We want to bring Burlesque back to Bedford as well as trying something new by combining it with Drag. We visited several venues in 2016 and found EMPIRE on Mill street to be the perfect setting for our glamorous party night. The evening will run from 9pm. We encourage the audience to dress up for this spectacular show and party the night away in style until the early hours.

Victoria Kahl: “I’m a huge fan of drag queens, and I’ve been attending shows for a few years now across the UK. We’ve had the beginnings small scene here, especially when the Glambassador of Bedford, Eddie Adams, was in town. I’m passionate about drag, beauty and femininity. I want to help create something amazing where I live, and best of all, a show I really want to see myself. I’m thrilled to be able bring EXTRAVAGANZA to life and bring brilliant performers to Bedford.

Chris White: “I’m a big fan of going out in Bedfordshire to gigs, pubs and restaurants. Since moving here from London two years ago, I have always been impressed with the wealth of entertainment in the town and I know our event will just add to it. I became interested in the Burlesque scene whist living in London. We had a dancer at our wedding” & my wife Charlotte wrote a book called Burlesque baking!
