Boris the Musical – 27, 28, 29 July – 8pm

Suitable for Ages 15+

Part of the Greater Manchester Fringe

One year on from the referendum, Blowfish Theatre presents the rise, fall and unfortunate rise again of Britain’s most famous politiclown. Hear the (soon to be) smash hits, “I’m talking about Brexit”, “Posh Lads” and “BeLeave!” Boo Michael Gove as he welcomes you to the Church of Brexit. Witness the life and time of Boris, in song!

A blend of biography, Brexit farce, and musical satire, “Boris” is the 5* show with something for everyone. Mixing pop with punk, tango and gospel, this is the always hilarious, often enraging tale of BoJo and his hand in Brexit.

Now newly updated to include the 2017 General Election. Join us on a musical journey from Eton, through Brexit, to Election 17!

So come along and laugh your socks off at the state of the world for an hour…before returning to your grim, unavoidable reality.

“A very funny show… something of a blessed relief as the UK struggles with the aftermath of Boris’ Brexit Shenanigans” Manchester Theatre Awards






Lady Pedal Festival – Saturday 16 September



Bored of traffic, low on cash, or want to take back control of your commute? – Why not get pedalling?!

In a city as flat as Manchester, cycling is often the quickest, most direct and cheapest way to get around the city, so what’s stopping you?
Many women feel unsafe or nervous about cycling on the roads – rush hour traffic, dark streets and the risk of punctures can be intimidating…
It’s time to take back control in a day of WORKSHOPS, MUSIC, PERFORMANCES and FREEBIES provided by a collaboration of Manchester cycling groups and artists.

For more information, go to Lady Pedal’s Website or their Facebook page.

Would you like to VOLUNTEER for this event? Perhaps you could organise a workshop, run a stall or help set up for the day? Lady Pedal would love to have you on board, so please be in touch!
