    June 21st, 2024

    Cranbrook Comedy Club! (21st JUNE)

    Our bar will be open from 6:40, Then Comedy from 8:00 pm with another amazing lineup! 
    This has got to be the BEST Comedy Event around!

    The Lineup this time…
    Tom Little is an award-winning comedian. In 2015 he won the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year (an award also won by acts such as Johnny Vegas, Jason Manford, Rhod Gilbert and Romesh Ranganathan) which he never stops banging on about. He was also a BBC Radio New Comedy Award finalist and his 2018 Edinburgh show was nominated for the Amused Moose Comedy Award. He plays the well-read fool, taking on hugely diverse facts, but refusing to deal with them conventionally, with a unique turn of phrase.  
    He generated a huge buzz following his recent his 2021 Edinburgh Fringe Show, Tom Little Makes A Triumphant Return to Stand Up, which was a sell-out success after a ringing endorsement from Chortle, with the reviewer commenting, ‘this is a title I can endorse’.
    He has a keen online following with 90 thousand followers on TikTok and 2.2 Million Likes.
    On top of Edinburgh, he has played comedy festivals across the country including Leicester, Morecombe, and Hastings. 
    "Inventive, unexpected and often very silly…. He surely can’t remain a hidden treasure for long." – Chortle

    Multi award-winning comedian Jeff Innocent has reached legendary status among his peers and audiences alike by staying at the top of his game for over 20 years.
    His unique appeal lies in the contrast between his east-end 'geezer’ appearance and demeanour, and his educated, philosophical delivery and culturally relevant subject matter.
    Always original, he continues to cement his position within the history of British stand-up comedians with his regular performances on the UK and world live comedy circuit and has recently acquired a whole new generation of fans, through his online viral video clips.
    “Jeff Innocent delivers a masterclass in stand-up comedy every time he performs“ – The Times on Sunday
    “It should be made law that every British citizen should go and see Jeff innocent, he’s that funny“ – Evening Standard
    “Jeff presents a show that’s part history lesson, part sociology lecture, but all funny“ – The Guardian

    Raymond & Mr Timpkins, Lightning-fast choreography meets uber-swift editing in a fantasmagorical collision of quality entertainment. An overload of velvet, sandals and multi-hued wool provides a startling accompaniment, the whole effect being that of a slim man and a fat man putting their bums in your face.
    Headlining at venues from the Falklands to Ashby De La Zouch, they’ve circumnavigated the planet, spurting amusement in concentrated twenty-minute bursts but now an hour show is gestating, due to arrive bloody and screaming at some point, if not slightly before.
    If you like music and let’s face it, who doesn’t, you’ll like it. If you like silliness, middle-aged men dancing and unsavoury acts, you’ll probably love it.
    “Ridiculous – quite bonkers funniness” – Voice Mag
    “A runaway train of brazen daftness” – The List
    “A hell of a fine act” – The Wee Review
    “A thing of brilliance” – Chortle
    “A world-class British variety act. A masterclass. The best I’ve seen” – Celebrity Radio
    “Sublime. It’s so slick and stylised, you wonder how they can keep it up” – Three Weeks
    “If you find a more inventive and joyful hour than one spent with ‘The Raymond & Mr Timpkins Revue’, do let me know… they are utterly charming.” – Fife Today

    Dan Evans, for over a decade Dan's accessible but childish surrealism has delighted audiences throughout the UK and Ireland. He's also had his grammar corrected by Dutch and German crowds; performed for chubby sweating ex-pats in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Singapore and Thailand, and is one of just two UK comics to play Hanoi, Vietnam.
    He's appeared on BBC 2's 'Brain Candy', 'Channel 5 at The Store' and the Channel 5 'Comedy Zone', Radio 2's 'Stand Up Show' and '28 acts in 28 minutes' on Radio 4.
    'a favourite with audiences as well as with his notoriously hard-to-please comedic peers' – The Guardian

    Performance: 20th APRIL 2024 – 8:00 PM Start – Our Bar opens at 7:00 PM

    Tickets: £13.50 / £9 Front 2 Rows / £17 Balcony Front Row

  • BRAVE RIVAL

    June 22nd, 2024

    BRAVE RIVAL with The Mark Harrison Trio

    Brave Rival are the South East’s rip-roaring rock and blues machine. Hailing from Portsmouth, the UK Blues Award Nominated band features the powerful and beautiful twin vocals of Chloe Josephine and Lindsey Bonnick. On lead guitar, providing dramatic guitar solos and crunching rock riffs is Ed “The Shred” Clarke, and holding it all together is the rhythmic backbone, the self-proclaimed engine room of Billy Dedman (bass) and Donna Peters (drums).

    Drawing influence from the likes of John Mayer, Aretha Franklin, Heart, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin and Tedeschi Trucks, Brave Rival offer a style and sound that you’ve always known, and yet never heard before.

    Since its inception in the summer of 2019, Brave Rival has gone from strength to strength, having successfully won the Introducing Stage at Butlins Skegness Rock and Blues Festival in 2022 and then booked to play the mainstage at the 2023 festival. They were finalists in the 2022 UK Blues Awards Emerging Act Of The Year category and at the Awards in 2023 they were finalists in the Band Of The Year, Album Of The Year and Instrumentalist Of The Year categories.

    Tipped as one of Joe Bonamassa’s “favourite discoveries this year” the future is looking incredibly bright for this young up-and-coming band. Brave Rival is a band on a meteoric rise, firing on all cylinders and is about to take the world by storm. Their unique combination of beautifully harmonic, soulful vocals, epic guitar solos, pounding drums and powerful bass serves up an infectious sound that is not to be missed.

  • OYSTERBAND – A LONG LONG GOODBYE

    November 23rd, 2024

    OYSTERBAND ‘A LONG LONG GOODBYE’ – AFTER 45 YEARS ON THE ROAD, OYSTERBAND HAVE DECIDED TO TAKE THE TOUR BUS OUT FOR ITS LAST RIDE.

    “We’re hanging up our travelling shoes, but we’re taking a year or so to say goodbye to our lovely live audience, and we mean to enjoy every minute!” Emerging in the early 80s from their folk club and ceilidh band days, Oysterband infused both the tradition and their own songs with a passion and energy that was electrifying for the time. Polkas, politics and a heaving dance floor seemed just right for Thatcher’s Britain. Signing to new roots label Cooking Vinyl, headlining English Roots Against Apartheid, playing Glastonbury and the Fleadh several times each, touring with The Pogues in Europe and Billy Bragg in North America, hosting the Big Session Festival….. all gained them a large and loyal international following. Their collaboration with June Tabor in 1990 produced the cult-classic album Freedom & Rain, and it was renewed 21 years later for Ragged Kingdom, one of the best-selling folk-rock albums of the new millennium. Winners of several BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, including Best Band twice, Oysterband’s song-writing has never stood still, and classics such as The Oxford Girl, When I’m Up (I Can’t Get Down), Everywhere I Go and Put Out The Lights have entered the folk canon.“It’s been a long, tough, joyful journey, but the time has come. In the words of our own song Granite Years, we’re waving you a long, long goodbye…..come help us celebrate!”

    Oysterband will be going out on a high as they bid “A Long Long Goodbye” to fans and friends with a series of unmissable shows. They’ve travelled the world but they still play with the fire of that dance band back in Kent.

    Tickets will go on sale Friday the 5th of April.

  • Russell Hicks: Happy To Be Here

    February 28th, 2025

    Russell Hicks: Happy To Be Here
    Russell Hicks heads out on his first tour, but not his first rodeo. (Warning: This is a stand-up show. NOT a rodeo.)  Russell Hicks is here to stay and he really is happy to be here. So, why don’t British People believe him?
    Hot off the back of a starring role in an Amazon Prime show that nobody watched, and was cancelled immediately, American Stand Up comedian Russell Hicks, lives in the UK where he allegedly performs stand-up comedy. Naturally, his parents still think he makes his money through some kind of illegal activity, so buy some tickets and help prove his legitimacy!
     You may have heard Russell as the voice of Sky Comedy, seen him entertain studio audiences at ‘Have I Got News for You’ or caught him opening for the likes of Al Murray or ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ winner Axel Blake. He’s performed up and down this country, picking up three Leicester Festival nominations along the way. He’s even been officially declared a Global Talent by Arts Council England.
    Known for his improvised performances, Russell Hicks has amassed millions of views online, and gained a devoted following of fans who’ve come to know that no two shows will be the same. Considered one of the best improvisers in the country, Russell has appeared on some of the UK’s biggest networks. He has starred in several episodes of ITV’s ‘Stand Up Sketch Show,’ and won the Channel 4 competition series ‘Captive Audience’ with his fully improvised comedy, and starred in Prime Video series ‘Lovestruck High’ narrated by Lindsay Lohan as the loveable Texan Coach Hughes.
