What The Butler Saw... a party for Queens; Kings and all Inbetweens

Corset & Diamonds and Dark Productions request the pleasure of your company to the decadent delights of 'What The Butler Saw...' - a pop-up burlesque ball for

♔ Queens; Kings and all Inbetweens ♕  


On the third of June, the Diamond Jubilee Weekend and as part of our alternative Royal Jubilee celebrations, you can enter the resplendent world of the Bright Young Things.

Join us in our sumptuous Grand Salon Ballroom at Pimms o'Clock and be greeted by our very special butler who shall usher you to the secret Red Velvet Room where you and yours can show off your finery in our photostudio or relax with a game croquet.


A delightful tea party shall be held under the Grand Staircase to ready you and your entourage for the cabaret and burlesque treats that have been tirelessly gathered for your pleasure - hosted by Our Queen and curated by the Ubermeister of Swing, currently on exile from the Fatherland, Mr Frank Sanazi.


A throne at the head of one of our VIP tables can be reserved for your exclusive pleasure with prime vistas from which to see and be seen, an attentive at-table service, negating your need to go to the bar, shall be bestowed on you and all with no minimum table spend. Please contact Corset and Diamonds party(at)corsetanddiamonds.com to arrange your VIP table experience.

Marnie Scarlet shall be the queen of alternative burlesque mesmerizing us with her sumptuous costumes and bizarre moves. Live music and royal comedy as well other burlesque shows to be confirmed.

As if we had not packed enough gayety and frivolity in for you Bright Young Things, there shall be divine fashions shows to include 'Hair to the Throne' by Ghoulia's Peculiars and a parade of corsetry and lingerie by the much loved Nikita Sablier.

The night is completed with a chance to win the inaugural 'Hobby-horse polo shoot-out' trophy, our unique ode of the Game of Kings, and dancing to the decadent music provided by The Secretary (Torture Garden) and Neoblade (Corset & Diamonds)

The unmissable event will start promptly at 9:00pm; Chariots at 3:00am.
Dress splendid, opulent, magnificent. NO CORGIS ALLOWED unless registered guide dogs.
