For those looking to feed their appetite, basket meals will also be available at the time of booking.

For lovers of razor sharp one-liners and quirky jokes, opening comedian Peter Brush will not disappoint.

After supporting Arthur Smith during his 2013 tour, Peter went on to perform his debut solo hour ‘Older than the Oldest Dog That Ever Lived’ at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, receiving well-deserved reviews.

Headlining on the night will be Mike McClean.

Known for his on screen roles in Channel 4’s ‘Shameless’ and having presented a whole host of TV shows including ‘The Big Breakfast’ and ‘Richard and Judy’, ticket holders will be enthralled by the British comedian’s boldness and quick wit.

Doors open at 7pm with acts starting from 9pm.
