GET your nipple tassels in a twirl at the latest show from Mackem burlesque troupe, The Coquette Collective.

The fabulous performers will take to the stage in a swirl of feathers, tassels, glitz and glamour at North Shore, formerly Manor Quay, on Saturday.

Entitled Silver Screen Striptease, the show celebrates cinema from the black and white era, old Hollywood glamour to modern Tarantino and sci-fi.

It promises to be a show based on “tease not sleaze” and will be hosted by flamboyant compere Duke DeMilo and Little Gem, a pint-sized pin-up model.

It will feature turns from Gretchen Tice, a comedy cabaret cutie; Felicity Switch; a vintage bombshell with a sexy rock ‘n’ roll edge; Rocky FeatherBoa who will be making his male burlesque (boylesque) solo debut and more.

VIP tables are £10 a seat and include champagne and cupcakes.

Entry on the doors, which open at 7pm for a 8.30pm start, are £5, or £4 for students.

Tickets are available in advance from Hustler, in Norfolk Street, Sunniside.
