Gallifrey Cabaret at HOME Manchester, Manchester 25 — 27 July 2024 Tickets from £10.00 — Book now

Following sell-out shows across the UK, Gallifrey Cabaret is back in Manchester, ahead of visiting Edinburgh Fringe this August. Jump aboard for a night of cosmic drag and cabaret, all centred around the popular TV show – Doctor Who.

Featuring a galactic display of Who-themed acts – from lizard burlesque to alien stand-up.

Described as “captivating and hilarious” by Vada Magazine, Gallifrey Cabaret is the brainchild of co-creators Reece Connolly and drag artist Carrot. Recommended for ages 18+, this two-hour-long show is packed full of references to the longest-running sci-fi show worldwide – Doctor Who. Featuring a galactic display of Who-themed acts – from lizard burlesque to alien stand-up – the evening is compered by Reece Connolly, who guides the show as everyone’s favourite Time Lord.

Gallifrey Cabaret‘s lineup can change with different venues/ performances, so thrillingly, audiences are never quite sure of the acts they will be treated to.

Packed with dimension-defying drag, stellar stand-up, poetry, and burlesque to make a Cyberperson blush, and an oncoming storm of many other surprises – audiences should expect the unexpected. Unapologetically queer with a cast made up of entirely LGBTQ+ performers, Gallifrey Cabaret‘s lineup can change with different venues/ performances, so thrillingly, audiences are never quite sure of the acts they will be treated to.

Luckily for Northern audiences, the TARDIS lands in Manchester this July ahead of shows at the Edinburgh Fringe. Fun and feelgood, head to HOME for a fabulous night of Doctor Who-inspired entertainment and cosmic comedy.
