It’s Friday which means it’s time for our what’s on!! Laugh your way into next week or become a Dinosaur Detective, there’s something on for everyone this weekend.
Austerity Pleasures: Join some incredible comedians for a hilarious satirical comedy show. After debuting his full hour at the Edinburgh Fringe last year, James Ross already runs his own ‘Quantum Leopard’ comedy night in London. He’s joined by Declan Kennedy and resident act Dan Wright. Headlining the night is Chris Purchase who has recently toured with Reginald D Hunter and is about to embark on his first solo tour around the UK. Tickets are £3 in advance, which you can buy here, and there will be some limited tickets available on the night for £7.
Tour of The Old Ship: The Old Ship Hotel dates back to 1559 and has been frequented by royalty, aristocrats and artists. The grade II listed assembly rooms are something to be admired.
