THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW
We pride ourselves on presenting top class entertainment and value for money (since 1981). The shows are usually mixed bills hosted by a compere and usually run from 8.30-11pm with one interval. The venue is well equipped for sound and light and comfortably holds 100 people. There is a bar downstairs (if not operating you can bring drinks downstairs purchased from the upstairs bar).
Do you accept group bookings?
As an intimate venue, we discourage large group bookings that can tend to disrupt shows, so tickets are limited to a MAXIMUM of 8 per person. We want everyone to enjoy the show. Please don’t talk during the performance and ensure your mobile phone is turned off. You will be required to leave without refund if your behaviour is disruptive. No recording in any medium is allowed without prior permission. Intoxicated persons will not be admitted.
How much are tickets?
They vary from £3-£15 depending on the show and night of the week. We can only take cash on the door. If you purchase a concessionary ticket, evidence of entitlement will be required when collecting the ticket. (OAP, NUS, on Benefits, etc.). Further information here.
Good quality, freshly cooked food is available throughout the day upstairs. But, we do NOT allow food in the venue itself. If you plan to eat, please arrive early so you don’t miss the beginning of the show. All food enquiries to The King’s Head on 020 8340 1028 or via their website. All the drinks are pub priced and we have a late bar until midnight Sun-Thursday and later on Fridays and Saturdays.
The venue is, surprisingly, downstairs and there is no lift. However, we are happy to assist with getting chairs and equipment in and out of the venue.
Please call Peter on 01920 823265 (weekday mornings 9-11am) if you want further information.
Kindly note, bills do occasionally change at the last minute for all sorts of reasons. We make every effort to obtain suitable replacements and always do our best to amend this site’s information to include any changes.
Very rarely, we will cancel a show altogether. It’s not something we do often or lightly, but we feel that if you are paying to see a show, you should feel comfortable and in an atmosphere where you don’t feel too exposed! Comedy is very difficult to perform to tiny audiences so we do have a minimum number of customers in order to go ahead. In these instances you will be informed by email/text by the ticketing company as soon as any show is pulled and we ALWAYS immediately update the website and Twitter/Facebook Pages of any pertinent changes. You will always be refunded (or offered the chance to transfer your ticket to a different event).
