Bye Bye Bangers Vol.1 is a circus themed fundraiser for Sid’s top surgery.


Expect a night of queer, colourful, chaos and come dressed in your silliest attire. Welcoming us into the big top is our host, Lionel Bitchie with his band of jokers and tricksters.


Then, we’ll send in the clowns. Expect musical madness from or DJ’s playing a genre hopping mix of hardcore, donk, bassline, makina, filth and silly’s. There will also be a raffle including glorious goodies from our craftiest clowns, with all proceeds going towards Sid’s big chop. Come one, come all to the gayest circus in Greater Manchester!


Dress code – with a prize for best dressed: Circus
