About Us

The Grouchy Critic is a little place in the world where myself and others can jibber jabber on about the stuff they’ve seen in Manchester. Nothing is off limits. Theatre, film and music. Street buskers if you like. Impromptu flashmobs even. Anything that takes our fancy.

It is for the uninitiated. Those that choose to stand with their noses firmly pressed against the window pane, looking in at the marvels that the arts have to offer but never felt comfortable enough to open the door and sample their delights. So, if you’re a regular theatre buff, this may not be the place for you. Our views, reviews, opinions will be honest and forthright and come from a place that is about challenging the conventional.

Above all it is celebrating the wonderful world of Mancunia and revelling in all the wondrous things this great city serves up.
