Manchester Jewish Museum

Chanukah Lewinsky'sBig quiz Night



Online event via Zoom


Pay as you feel

Chanukah Lewinsky is back in office. Host of queer, Jewish cabaret Homos and Houmous (think Julie Walters on speed), they’ll be beaming campy quiz rounds direct to your living room featuring stories from our collection you never thought you needed to know… Can you spot a celebrity just from their hairdo? Will you be able to tell your dames from your ugly sisters in our 1950s Jewish pantomime round? Who will be victorious in their innuendos? With guest appearances including Glasgow’s emerging queer, yiddish café Pink Peacock and alt punk non-binary drag artist That Ray. Pyjamas, faux fur coats and espresso martinis optional but definitely encouraged.

You can play the quiz on your own or as a team in household bubbles. There is no problem if you want to form a team with others who are not in your household bubble, all you need to do is sign up individually for a zoom place and communicate with each other via phone to co-ordinate your answers. We will guide everyone through the process on the night.

This event is pay what you feel. The money raised will support our community arts programming as part of the re-development of the museum.

That Ray (Ray Filar)

Ray Filar is an interdisciplinary writer, performance artist, and debauched trans artist. They make alt punk drag as their alter-ego That Ray, using confrontation, humour and noise within storytelling, physical theatre and lip sync. They’ve performed at the Tate Britain and Modern, Hayward Gallery, ICA, Glastonbury and Latitude festivals, National Theatre River Stage, and anywhere else that will have them.
