The classily-named Madame Collier de Perlier and her pal Just Lucky host a Valentine's date with a difference.

Possibly not one to take a timid first date on, unless you want to see them running for the nearest exit, Cupid's Capers is definitely one for the more open-minded.

Billed as "an experience unlike anything else" and a "smorgasboard of metrosexual delights", monthly residents at the Marlborough, Boutique Theatre, put on a night of burlesque, cabaret and oddities.

The night will see Madame and her sidekick take the audience on a journey back to her feather-filled boudoir - and with a name like hers you can only imagine what goes on there.

In what sounds like a cross between a Dita Von Teese turn and a Victorian freak show, attractions include sensual striptease, flirtatious fan dancers, darkly humorous happenings and twisted physical theatre.

If that's not enough for you, there's also torch song divas, cupid cabaret dance acts, comic cameos and cabinets of curiosities.

Boutique is encouraging showgoers to get into the spirit by dressing up as Valentine vamps. Book early to avoid disappointment.
