Great news from Ben at Get Stuffed Comedy Club announcing the return of stand up comedy to Tring this Sunday:
The Court Theatre announced on Wednesday that they were willing to take bookings. An hour later, I’d replied and was already booking the comedians for this Sunday. Apologies for my tardiness. Not sure what I was doing for that hour.
Back in March we were midway through the Tringe Aperifif when the lockdown ended the festival. And it was sad to not be able to put the main Tringe on this July. The final night would have been last Saturday.
Our first gig is this Sunday. And features a line up of Tring favourites for our first Get Stuffed Outdoors gig.
ARTHUR SMITH will host, SIMON EVANS will headline with Kelly Convey and Andrew Ryan supporting.
Start – 3pm (Doors 2pm)
The Court Theatre
Tickets £17.50 – Click Here
There will be 2x intervals. Approximate finish time 5.30pm.
Demand for tickets is likely to be high for this gig and other gigs over the coming weeks. Do consider becoming a comedy club member to give yourself the best chance to get tickets for the next gigs.
All gigs will be outside at the back of the theatre and procedures are in place to ensure we adhere to the current government guidelines. The bar will be open (taking both cash and card) with signage and a one-way system in place.
We would ask that masks are worn in the bar or the toilet but this is not mandatory and it will not be policed by the front of house staff. Whilst the gig is outside, the performance seated area will be a no smoking space.
There is definitely no requirement to wear masks outside when watching the show. Hand sanitiser will be available on entry and exit to the theatre.
Moving forward, I’m planning to do a series of gigs over the next 4-6 weeks. They will all be booked as late as possible so we can evaluate the best weather window for the gigs. I’ve already spoken to a number of comedians and there are plenty who are eager to come to Tring.
In most cases, comedians have been unable to earn any income since March so it’s our responsibility to get things moving as best we can. Likewise, the Court Theatre is in the same boat; so the gigs we are doing will offer a lifeline to our important local venue.
