Quote from Festival producer, Kristi (Trixie Blue)
"After the absolutely bonkers and brilliant first Newcastle Burlesque Festival in 2022, I am so excited to produce the second Newcastle Burlesque Festival. The idea was sparkling around my head since 2012, and now it is time to shine. The North East holds a treasure trove of Burlesque goodness, and this festival aims to bring together local and international talent."
