Photos from The Gilded Merkin's 1st Birthday burlesque blow out

Nottingham's flagship Burlesque night The Gilded Merkin celebrated it's 1st birthday in style on Sunday 11 August, with the sell out quarterly show serving up a sassy slice of cheeky vaudeville and striptease.

The celebratory show  featured a number of pro performers pushing the creative boundaries of the common feather with a cheeky wink. Including numbers from Notts own Scarlett Daggers as well as Domino Barbeau, Cherry Shakewell, Kiki Lovechild, Fancy Chance, Luna Rosa, and the curiously dark compare for the evening Joe Black.

The show attracted a diverse vintage look loving crowd, who were treated for their eye for fine period threads with some prizes for the best dressed. A fine way to spend a Sunday evening.
