Britain’s Got Talent may have caused controversy after Beatrix Von Bourbon performed a burlesque routine but a Soho venue will be hosting an event dedicated to the raunchy dancing.

Floridita will be welcoming some of the world’s most eclectic and diverse acts in burlesque on May 8 for The World Burlesque Games as part of the sixth London Burlesque Festival.

The venue will be introducing guests to the Triple Crown, which will have variety-based burlesquers exploring new twists to their signature routines.

Some of the world’s top performers will be on stage in the evening, including Miss Behave, Anna The Hulagan, Bunny, Pistol and Kiki Lovechild.

The London Burlesque Festival is from May 7 to May 13 and there will be host of events during the week.
