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.
