Oh What a Lovely Lockdown: Cheddar Gorgeous

Drag artist, activist and academic Cheddar Gorgeous explores the experience and ‘blitz spirit’ of the pandemic in a new performance using spoken word, comedy and satire - drawing upon their experiences as an eccentric-attention-hungry artist navigating loneliness with delusions, a plucky attitude, and a tune or two!

Oh What a Lovely Lockdown has been developed with a Pride Stages Bursary from the Greater Manchester LGBTQ+ Arts & Culture Network, an LGBT Foundation project, supported using public funding by the National Lottery by Arts Council England.

The Pride Stages Bursary is supported by The Met and Bury Pride, Waterside Arts and Pride in Trafford, The Lowry and Salford Pride, Oldham Coliseum Theatre and Oldham Pride, Manchester International Festival, and Manchester Pride.

Fat Roland

Performer and music writer Fat Roland has created three solo shows, the latest of which was alternative record shop comedy Seven Inch. This involved over 200 cartoon props and was commissioned by The Lowry as part of their ‘Developed With’ artist programme.

Fats has emerged from lockdown like a glorious beaver popping out of a riverside pipe hole: for this comeback Pride performance, he will present a cartoon-scribbled tribute to pop music that holds such incredible beauty, it’ll rip your face off. In a good way.

“The most creative bestest thing since H from Steps made me that Justin Bieber out of pipe cleaners” – Dolly Parton

A delicate and dynamic piece by Hawk Dance Theatre, a Manchester-based contemporary dance company creating work for various platforms & audiences. Led by Josh Hawkins.
