Join Chanukah Lewinsky and gaggle of queer performers of different faiths for a sensuous salacious seasonal sensation. A Manchester Homos and Houmous show has been years in the making so we’re very excited and will be sure to bleach the loos for your arrival!




For many of us, Chanukah is a festival for accidentally almost missing it. So we’ve added an extra night just for jew!

All are welcome. No prior Jewish knowledge required. We speak directly from God.


Since 2016 queer Jewish theatre company and cabaret Homos and Houmous has been schlepping around with a platter of musical storytelling, comedy, drag, live klezmer music and politics. We are a part of the emerging renaissance of Jewish leftist art, politics  and Yiddish revivalism. Check out the rad projects of Queer Jewish Collective, Vashti Media, Jewdas, Na’amod, Sadeh Farm, Yiddish Open Mic Cafe and Black Jewish Alliance.


Doors at 7pm.
