Welcome to Downstairs at the Kings Head

Coming Up!

Another fantastic week of shows begins..

The next COMEDY TRY OUT NIGHT is on Thursday 18th July - up to 16 acts compered this week by OTIZ CANNELLONI.

On Saturday 20th July we present a STUNNING LINE-UP featuring Mike Gunn, PAUL THORNE, INDER MANOCHA, LENNY SHERMAN and PHILIP SIMON.  These shows often sell out, so book online early to guarantee tickets. 

Our EDINBURGH FESTIVAL COMEDY PREVIEW SEASON  CONTINUES to the end of July.  ONLY £7 ADMISSION to see BOTH SHOWS each night (advance). A stunning set of shows - two a night - through until the end of July. Here are the remaining dates:


Date                 8pm                             9.15pm


Mon  15/07       Mitch Benn                   Nick Revell

Sun  28/07        Lucy Porter                  Tom Toal
Mon  29/07       Mandy Muden              Susan Murray


Look out also for The Jazz, Rick Right on the Decks and the Quiz appearing on their regular days this week and beyond.  And don't forget: it's usually cheaper to book in advance for many shows.

And... the pub is running a special promotion; if you show your wristband for that night's show, you can get 20% OFF drinks upstairs for the hour after the show finishes.
