SHOWS UPDATE

Well, we think it’s safe to say any of our remaining plans for live shows in 2020 haven’t exactly gone as we’d hoped. We’re rescheduling our dates at Lock 91 and our show at Chorley Theatre for a tentative January 2021 – we’ll have confirmation on those in time for our next newsletter. Waterside Arts, our regular venue, is remaining closed until April 2021 but we will be back!

So what does that mean for the rest of the year? We’ll be continuing online with weekly shows (ComedySportz: Wednesdays and Saturdays 7pm GMT) and online improv Drop-Ins will return from 7th November. We’re also planning more festive fun and special shows for all ages this winter. Be sure to follow our social media for regular updates!
Thanks to everyone who booked tickets for our return to live shows. You will either have received a refund already or may be offered the opportunity to transfer tickets to our new dates when they’re confirmed for next year.
Drops-In Improv workshops every Saturday
Thank you for your continued support this year. It’s been a difficult one for all of us and we’re immensely grateful for your support. We’ll still be here to keep you entertained throughout this second lockdown and beyond with more all action, all improvised competitive comedy for all ages!
