    Times on the tickets says 8.30 when the show starts at 7..the page made it look like there was a burlesque show but we only saw singers and a comedy act. Admittedly we arrived at 9 due to the tube strikes which were not mentioned at all on the advertisements or booking. We sent 2 emails days before the show and received no response. Feels like a complete waste of £40. The staff were nice, and the performers were hood, but we feel mislead as they were not what we expected.
