Mother's Ruin return to Contact for some fiercely entertaining cabaret mayhem.

‘The best in exploratory queer performance’

Reviews Hub

A spectacular night of outrageous and fiercely entertaining cabaret mayhem hosted by our glamorous eco warrior Timberlina. Comedy, music, drag, poetry and the unpredictable presented by a top bill of subversive Queer artists from the North West and beyond.



Your glamorous and ecologically inspired hostess, with her special blend of sincerity and shambolic hilarity.

Gerry Potter Poet
Poet Gerry Potter, will  bring back a few old Chloe Poems Poems, but not the gingham diva herself. See how he fares with the auld stuff. Will it still be funny? Will it still thrill? Will he be able carry it off? Pop down ‘n’ see.

Afshan D’souza-Lodhi

A queer muslim writer from Manchester. Her debut poetry collection (out in October) ‘on desire’ explores the desire to love, be loved and belong. Her work straddles the boundaries of flash fiction, poetry and script and sits in the hybrid world that many young British Desis (South Asians) exist in.

Eva Serration

Eva Serration is a local drag performance artist. Usually bringing her strange blend of lipsyncing, storytelling and flirtations with circus to the stage, she is now unleashing her warm dulcet tones to tease the ears and bring the tears. One way or another. She’s gonna find ya.

Joe Sutherland

With a caustic, catty wit and unapologetic confidence, Joe has taken the UK comedy circuit by the balls, and the circuit liked it. Fresh from his debut Edinburgh Fringe show and supporting Ellie Taylor on tour.

Holly Penfield

“Holly Penfield is more than one fine diva — she’s a whole host of them, and they all look wonderful and sound sensational.” Sir Tim Rice
