Hebden Bridge Burlesque Festival

This is the 2nd Burlesque Festival in Hebden Bridge organised by Heidi Bang Tidy and Lady Wildflower who between them have over fifteen years experience of staging live events and burlesque shows.

We ladies at Heart Gallery do see Burlesque as an art form and so this year we did want to celebrate this and lined up a few makers who are influenced just a teeny weeny bit by this themselves … so here is a sneaky peek at work currently being showcased whilst the Festival takes place and throughout the rest of May … enjoy!
