The notorious Erotica Show will be bringing a little bit of naughtiness to London's Olympia this November; strictly for adults this three-day annual event is quirky, audacious and exciting. The show invites worldwide entertainers specialising in burlesque, cabaret and circus acts to perform on stage; this year Strictly Come Dancing's Andrew Cuerden and Hanna Haarala will be leading a professional dance team to create sensational ballroom and Latin American routines. Plus with a catwalk brimming with dancers, entertainers mingling in the audience and a male strip show taking place daily it will be enough to get anyone hot under the collar. Along with the entertainment there will be plenty of opportunities for visitors to join in the fun; with seminars and workshops focussing on massages and body language as well as demonstrations of glamour photography, body painting and sculptures.
