Tickle your fancy is a cabaret night full of surprises. A smorgasbord of entertainment, offering something for everyone.

The night is hosted by Doolally, a female, comedy singing act. They introduce a range of cabaret turns; music, spoken word, magic, comedy, drama and sometimes the downright unusual!

Since 2015, Tickle your fancy have been entertaining audiences in packed out venues in Chorlton, South Manchester. Now it’s Radcliffe’s turn to get in on the act!

Acts appearing at Radcliffe Market will include:

  • Dave Viney – Mancunian performance poet, multiple poetry slam winner, regular guest at poetry nights and festivals across the UK, and fresh from performing to 8,000 people at the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the World Taekwondo Championships at Manchester Arena
  • Rod Shepherd – Conspiracy theorist
  • Emma Ellis – singing and guitar
  • Pablo Fanque’s Fantastic Fair – dance act
  • Plus more!

Plus the Tickle your fancy writing competition – with prizes!
