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.

Mano McLaughlin and the all night boys

mano

Described by Elbow's Guy Garvey as "one of Britain's best songwriters", Mano McLaughlin returns to Shangri La! to present Charlie's 13th dream in A#, his forthcoming new album.

Mano's songs are sometimes sad, sometimes dryly funny but always authentic, marrying the English pop sensibility of Ray Davies with the introspective folk of Elliot Smith. His imagery is simple but unexpected, and delivered with irresistible musical phrasing.
