Enjoy an evening of glamour and decadence with some wonderful burlesque performances and musical entertainment.
The spectacular Victorian concert hall of Dewsbury Town Hall will be transformed with table seating for the audience to sit and soak up the ambience and enjoy a drink whilst taking in the show.
For those who are new to the Burlesque art form the evenings can easily be described in three films: a hint of Moulin Rouge, the showmanship of Cabaret and the 1950s seaside postcard humour of Carry On! All thrown into one fabulous show!
Slippery Belle is brought to the Town Hall by Bella Besame who runs shows at the Lowry Theatre in Salford. Bella’s shows are always different but they all have some things in common: the UK and Europe's best burlesque and cabaret performers, at least 8 performances per show, plenty of seating, reasonable drinks prices, an amazing atmosphere and a friendly, well behaved and well dressed audience

The BBC have decided to return to Dewsbury Town Hall for their Question Time programme on Thursday March 1.
Leader of the Council, Cllr Mehboob Khan, commented: “I am proud to announce that Dewsbury Town Hall is fast becoming the destination of choice for television companies, including popular ITV dramas Emmerdale and Eternal Law and now a return visit from the BBC with Question Time. It’s a great way to raise the profile of Dewsbury and highlight our spectacular newly refurbished Town Hall.”
Question Time first came to Dewsbury Town Hall in March 2010 and as it was International Women’s Week it was an all female audience, a first at the time for the BBC programme. This time round both men and women can take part.
Since its first broadcast in 1979 Question Time has become a popular staple of British television, offering the opportunity for the audience to question figures from the world of politics, industry, media and entertainment.
With host David Dimbleby at the helm, the programme continues to attract approximately 30,000 applications from the public wanting to be in the audience.
For those wanting to apply to be part of the audience, details are available on the BBC website at www.bbc.co.uk/questiontime
