A FREE streaming double bill presented by Bury Pride and The Met

While Bury Pride is unable to take place in its much loved celebratory form this year we’re delighted to present a digital season of new artistic performance. Throughout spring and summer The Met in partnership with Bury Pride will present work that celebrates and connects – until we can meet again.

This months’ streaming double bill features two of Greater Manchester’s most exciting emerging talents commissioned through Pride Stages.

Cheddar Gorgeous

Cheddar Gorgeous
Oh What a Lovely Lockdown

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.
