Back again by popular demand this year will be the Asylum Burlesque show with early and late performances at The Venue at BGU. 

Curated by Scarlett Butterfly, both shows will be hosted by the incomparable Bambi Bang Bang! She’s an elegant glamazon with a sultry, smoky voice, but don’t be fooled by her bubblegum smile and silver-screen charms!  Grab a drink, get comfortable and prepare for a sexy, silly and quite frankly hilarious ride with this singing sensation and her raunchy sense of humour!

Scarlet Butterfly, returns to the Asylum this year with a dazzling new act!  A much loved performer on the UK steampunk scene Scarlet is an award winning, internationally established aerial dance and fire artist.  She has gained a reputation for specialising in a unique, innovative form of acrobatic, theatrical, cirque style aerial dance alongside outstanding fire shows.  She specialises in the lollipop or lyrapole, a fusion of pole and aerial hoop performance.  Her performances are visually stunning combining breath-taking skills with exquisite, glamorous, fantasy inspired costuming.  Scarlet’s performances are always graceful, enchanting, powerful and exciting and she can’t wait to entertain you this year at the Asylum’s legendary burlesque show!

The Magic Ball Man is an internationally acclaimed contact juggler and flow artist.  He has amazed audiences around the world with his truly mesmerising artistry.  Another firm favourite and back by popular demand, come and see him perform a brand new act choreographed to perfection and with strong steampunk twist.  This might just be the closest thing to real magic that you’ll ever see!

Odelia Opium is a regular favourite of the burlesque show, Odelia Opium is the intoxicating time traveller of burlesque. Inspired by the Jazz Age, Weimar Cabaret, the Ziegfeld Follies, the opulence of the Victorian era and 18th century pop culture, in true steampunk style, she will never fail to take you on a sensual journey into the past! This year she will grace the stage with a new, spellbinding act that will leave you breathless!

Seedy Frills is brilliantly bonkers! An international, multi-award winning, burlesque comedienne from Lancashire, UK, Seedy Frills, with her delicious cheesecake comedy is guaranteed to playfully tease as well as tickle!  Mixing inspirations from yesteryear’s silver screen comediennes such as Lucille Ball with British ‘Carry On’ humour, it is hard not to love Seedy’s animated facial expressions and mischievous antics. With high spirited, cheeky and chucklesome performances, Seedy Frills is the Burlesque Comedienne who will have you grinning from ear to ear!

Silent clown and professional idiot Kiki Lovechild has wowed international crowds with comedy and burlesque routines described by the press as ‘fantastically inventive’, ‘astounding’ and ‘burlesque with a difference!’.  Over the years, thousands have enjoyed his quirky routines, which draw upon his training and experience in a variety of skill-sets, including mime, clowning, puppetry, illusion, escapology and more.  A full-time cabaret, circus and theatre performer, he has trained with the masters of clowning, including Gaulier in Paris, and de Castro in London and it is a privilege to have him grace our stage at The Asylum this year!

Miss Strawberry Moon is an outrageous ocular oddity, a comical fantastical phenomenon, a rip-roaring glamazon!  Deliciously delinquent and gloriously divine, this exuberant being will blow your freaking mind!  The reigning Queen of the Chez Nous Burlesque Festival and award winner for best comedy at the Croatian Burlesque Festival 2019 Miss Strawberry Moon is somewhat of showstopper! She has headlined in the UK and Finland touring the country from top to bottom and recently plopped her tantalising tentacles across the Czech Republic when she toured with Bohemian Burlesque. And if that’s not enough she crashed her way into Oklahoma City in January where she performed at the iconic Tower Theatre!  Setting the world ablaze Miss Strawberry Moon has captivated audiences far and wide with her own unique, highly charged comedic style and you can see her right here, at the Asylum Burlesque show 2024 – not one to miss!

Victor and the Bully

Armed with a devilish steampunk aesthetic and bringing in a thunderous twisted sound of Guitars, pianos, violins, trumpets and anything they can throw in the mix, ‘Victor and the Bully’ create a Carnival blend of music inspired by pop, punk, swing, mariachi, classical and metal to blow the cobwebs away and get the feet tapping!

VATB took the Engine Shed by storm last year and this will be another opportunity to see them perform in this amazing music venue. 


Wight Hot Pipes

Headlining tonight will be the Wight Hot Pipes who never fail to set the dancefloor alight. 

Well not literally, but possibly closer than you might think.


The Wight Hot pipes deliver a mix of musical genres which fuse in their melodic melting pot to create an exhilarating cocktail of flavours; spanning the entire spectrum from celtic all the way through to contemporary dance and gritty rock.
