We had hoped to commence renovations and a full review of the Technical Spec of the theatre itself over the winter period, with a view to reopening for productions in the late spring or summer. Unfortunately, with Manchester now in Tier 3, this work is now on hold and will need to be rescheduled.

For the time being, a decision has been taken to close the Dancehouse doors beyond our core educational activities, until at least Autumn / Winter 2021.

We are awaiting confirmation from our Promoter Partners as to whether our existing shows will be moved to an alternative venue, postponed or cancelled but a refund will now be available from your original ticket vendor upon request.

Gary Meikle - Surreal

After his meteoric rise through the ranks, Scottish Comedy Award winner and viral sensation Gary Meikle is back with his second tour show, Surreal! A word that perfectly describes Gary’s last twelve months. He started the year performing in comedy clubs, and ended it selling out big theatres in the UK!
