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 17 FEBRUARY 2017, FROM ABOUT 8PM-ISH

Moff Skellington

moffskellington

Moff is a floater, a practitioner of Edoddi: Abstercot's traditional blend of art pictures, word poems and music tunes. The spirit of Edoddi provides, for those who seek it, a means to create an authentic folk music for today - a folk music of the individual, the tradition of one in an age of alienation!

In Edoddi there are no rules except those of ones own making; it is a free musical expression of one's mind and one's experience of life.

When he's not recording, or writing, Moff is painting. Or having a brew.

The Prodigal Cow

prodigal-cow

Written by Mark Harvey Levine, the Prodigal Cow is a very familiar story told from a more bovine point of view! A 10 minute short farmyard play, masterfully comedic-ified by Rachel Priest and Leni Murphy!

The Retrosettes

retrosettes

The Retrosettes inject contemporary music with a retro flavour and revive the past within a modern soundscape.

Their music combines modernity and vintage in a cool, elegant mix of sounds from 1960s Pop, Northern Soul and Disco. Their music seamlessly echoes The Beatles era which blends into the present.

Cult film director and Oscar winner Paolo Sorrentino chose the band for the opening sequence of his film Youth with Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel.
