Shangri La!
Bringing joy, love, talent and culture to the good people of North Manchester.

About us

Welcome to Shangri La!, Prestwich’s premier alternative cabaret show, bringing joy, love, talent and culture to the good people of North Manchester since 2007.  Shangri La! is not for profit, we pay all our acts, and serves up a monthly smorgasboard of music, short theatre, spoken word, poetry, film, dance, standup, Europe’s most rubbish raffle AND a dirty disco at the end. It takes place (mostly) the third Friday of every month, from about 8pm at the Carlton Club near Heaton Park Metrolink station and is still only a fiver in.  VALUE.

WHAT’S ON AT THIS MONTH’S SHANGRI LA!

FRIDAY 23 SEPTEMBER 2016

Kat Kehoe

kath-kehoe

Former burlesque dancer, Kat Kehoe is the inventor of the now famous, patented onion sphincter. When not inventing, she spends many hours in her luxury ship lap shed down her allotment writing poetry whilst chitting her seed potatoes. She lives in a hobbit hole with her three hobbit children and partner.

“I write poetry because I can't take a decent photograph. My poetry reflects my devotion to my family, love and cake.”

Captain of the Lost Waves

Witness the melody, muse and weirdness of nautical mysticism with the Captain. “Let's be clear about one thing first: The Captain really can sing… he has a voice you might hear on a West End stage.” Richard Stamp, Edinburgh Fringe Festival
