Variety show at civic hall

AN EVENING of burlesque-themed entertainment is taking place at Rotherham Civic Hall.

“Traditionally, burlesque has been a variety show; and we’re bringing this fascinating art form back to life, adding a modern day twist,” said producer Michael Taylor.

The event is taking place at the Catherine Street venue, in Rotherham town centre, on Monday, October 31, from 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £17.50 and are available online or by calling 01709 823640.
