The Grand Exhibition is an annual event in aid of charity. The Rouge Revue hosted the first TGE in Cape Town in 2015 and JHB followed suit. Over the last 2 years CT and JHB have raised a combined R98 000 for charity. (Rape Crisis and The Breast Health Foundation.)

This year TGE takes place in CT on the 5th August and JHB on the 12th.

The Grand Exhibition will showcase Cape Towns top burlesque talent, from seasoned professional solo performers to dazzling troupe numbers from Cape Towns longest standing burlesque companies.
Enjoy browsing our bespoke burlesque market, enjoy some delicious food and drinks and be mesmerized by a spectacular burlesque show, all in aid of a good cause.
There will be an array of food and refreshment vendors to satisfy your appetite as well as beautiful bespoke burlesque wares, from corsets to pasties, specialty lingerie and everything in between.
Join the movement and help spread the word.

♥ A bit about our beneficiary - RC Cape Town Trust

All funds raised from The Grand Exhibition will be donated to Rape Crisis.

The Rape Crisis Cape Town Trust (RCCTT), established in 1976, empowers rape survivors in the Western Cape on their journey to recovery and on their road to justice. Furthermore, we work to reduce and deter rape in communities, to support survivors speaking out about rape and to bring about law reform through partnering with other organisations across South Africa. We help an average of 300 calling and about 400 new face-to-face clients every month. There is little support available to rape survivors and Rape Crisis is one organisation that provides comprehensive services from the time of the rape right through to the conclusion of the trail and beyond. Our services are run by 13 staff members and 80 volunteers serving a beneficiary group that is 50% black African, 40% coloured and Indian and 10% white.

Rape is a significant social problem with 6 000 rapes being reported in the Western Cape every year. However, despite this, government funding and donor support fall short of addressing the full extent of the work required to address this problem. It is the generosity of people like you that enables us to continue providing these vital services in partnership with the communities that we serve.
