    Pay What You Can

Pen:Chant’s mixed bill cabaret format returns after a long hiatus with a fundraiser for South Manchester Sanctuary community sponsorship group as part of Chorlton Arts Festival 2022!

Featuring three incredible guest acts, an open mic, a raffle and much more, all in the name of raising money to support refugees.

For this event we bring to you:

– Incredible spoken word and music from award-winning writer/performer Keisha Thompson
– Beguiling jazzfolkgospelamericana (aka ‘hobopop’) from singer-songwriter Kirsty McGee
– Hilarious musical comedy from daft cabaret foursome and hosts of ‘Tickle Your Fancy’, Doolally!

Hosted by Pen:Chant founder and award-winning writer/performer Ben Mellor.

Limited open mic spots available, first come, first served. Contact info at penchant dot org dot uk to request a spot.

Raffle with glittering prizes! Book swap stall! Drinks!

Please come down and support this excellent cause. South Manchester Sanctuary are a new community sponsorship group for Hulme, Chorlton and Whalley Range, raising money to support the resettlement of a refugee family in their local area. For more info follow their links at

Tickets are Pay What You Decide, with a suggested donation of £10 concs/£15 standard/£20 sponsor rate (subsidising someone who can only afford a cheaper ticket) – but please give as generously as you can!
