A decade of decadence – York’s Coquette Burlesque & Cabaret Club celebrate ten years in business
Ten years ago, two friends from York discovered the world of burlesque. Inspired by the glamour, flamboyance and creative potential of the art form, they decided to put on their own burlesque and cabaret event in the city and Coquette was born. Since then they have gone on to produce hundreds of shows, employing over 160 performers and delighting audiences with the risqué and the ridiculous.
The Coquette team will be celebrating this milestone with some of their favourite acts on Friday 19th October at The Fulford Arms in York. Tickets are now on sale and are strictly limited.
Following a sell out show over the summer at The Great Yorkshire Fringe festival, producers Daisy De Lux and Pandora Amour wanted to mark their anniversary with a more intimate event.
“Our first show took place at The Speakeasy on Gillygate with a small but very enthusiastic audience!” says Daisy, “We wanted to recreate that feeling with an informal, bijoux event involving pop up performances throughout the evening followed by dancing and of course, birthday cake!”
Confirmed acts include burlesque performers Sarina Del Fuego, Poppy Pout and Maisie Martini, bellydancer Farasha Albaydaa, circus artiste Mira Belle and close up magician Adrian Salamon. For those who like to dance DJ’s Danny Mass and Tripp Hazzard will be playing rock n’roll, swing, jive and jazz until late.
Tickets are now on sale priced £10, available from The Fulford Arms in person or online www.thefulfordarms.com. Discounts are available for any performers who have worked with us over the past 10 years – contact Coquette for further details!
