Comedians and Carols
Following on from last year’s excellent event, we will be running Comedians and Carols again on 30th November.
On the run-up to Christmas what could be better than mulled wine, mince pies, carols and some top-notch comedy!
Hosted by Paul Kerensa, co-writer of BBC’s hit comedies Not Going Out and Miranda, the evening features stand-up routines from Paul and 3 other top comedians, interspersed with carols. With live music, mulled wine and mince pies Comedians and Carols is a fantastic way to start your Christmas.

A stand up comedian in his own right, Paul won ITV’s ‘Take The Mike’ competition in 2002 and regularly plays London’s Comedy Store and many well-known comedy clubs across the country.
