Miss Australian Burlesque, Diesel Darling

Burlesque is back in Bruns this July –  it’s been a busy year, it’s totally understandable if you haven’t made it to the Brunswick Picture House recently, but this July, they’re bringing one of the most in-demand shows, so this one’s for you –hurly burly, what a girlie!

Bruns does Burlesque returns dripping with pure glamour for a bumper three-week winter season, featuring some of the hottest artists in the biz.

But it doesn’t stop there! Lil’ Cheeky, the family-friendly circus bonanza is back in an all new, all ages circus show that no one – young or old – should miss. It’s got the sass and attitude of the late-night shows but without the guilt of leaving any of the family behind – 13 and 20 July at 2pm with family discounts available.
