As well as 50 performers there will be nine workshops taking place including burlesque skills like fan dancing to physical theatre disciplines like clowning and stage make-up masterclasses. The festival opens tonight with a Legend in the Making competition for newcomers hosted by festival co-host Heidi Bang Tidy at Hebden Bridge Little Theatre.

That’s followed by The Late Night Quickie - a new show for 2017 featuring the edgier side of alternative cabaret. Full details www.hebdenbridgeburlesquefestival.co.uk
