Here at easyHotel, we may be in the business of encouraging people to lie down, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love a good stand up too! Go check out some local comedy gigs and venues over the coming months across the UK2019 July 23
The big one of the summer, is of course, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. easyHotel Edinburgh is perfectly placed to make the most of the Fringe, but you can also catch the train in from easyHotel Glasgow in under an hour!
You’ll find loads of great acts across the whole month of August, but you don’t need us to tell you that. Why not catch some Edinburgh previews if you can’t make it to the real thing? Lots of acts will hold their Edinburgh Previews across the UK - from London to Sheffield, to Manchester…
Red Raw at The Stand is a great beginner’s showcase that gives some of the newer faces in comedy their start, while some more established comedians drop in from time to time to test out new material…Check it out every Wednesday in Newcastle. The Stand is located at 31 High Bridge just a 5 minute walk from easyHotel Newcastle.
Red Raw at The Stand is also in Glasgow! A great night for beginners to the comedy scene every Tuesday in Glasgow. The Stand is located at 333 Woodlands Road either a 20 minute walk or a 10 minute subway ride from easyHotel Glasgow.
We’re expecting lots of laughs this summer at Frog and Bucket. This award winning comedy club has a variety of nights, from Beat the Frog to Saturday Barrel of Laughs. Frog and Bucket on Oldham Street is a 7 minute walk from easyHotel Manchester.
Looking for a venue even closer? The Three Minute Theatre (3MT) is (coincidentally) just a 3 minute walk away from easyHotel Manchester on Oldham Street, while The Comedy Store at Deansgate Locks is sure to be packed full of laughs! You can also catch the Greater Manchester Fringe Festival throughout July across Manchester.
Underbelly Festival runs every year from April to September at London South Bank, and with lots of great comedy acts (as well as circus, cabaret, music and more), it’s well worth a look in. And with Comedy Clubs all over London, you’re spoilt for choice all year round, from the Comedy Store to Top Secret Comedy Club, and all the rest in between.
Every Thursday at the Glee Club on Hurst Street you can check out the Comedy Carousel (Winner of What’s On Readers Award 2019 for Best Comedy Show, no less). Perfect for a group night out and just a 6 minute walk from easyHotel Birmingham. Just The Tonic Comedy Club is just a bit further on Broad Street, with a 13 minute walk, and brings you some of the best comedy on the high street (and your ticket gets you into the after party, too)!
Overseas travel may not be certain for everyone in the New Year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a great British Staycation.
With Christmas just around the corner, plenty of us will be wondering what’s in store this year when it comes to festivities. Worry no more as we bring you the lowdown on Christmas events in the UK. We deserve a 'Holly Jolly' Christmas after all…
Many of us have had to swap our travels for our sofas in 2020 with little hope of a sunny break away from the norm. Luckily, spending much of our time at home can also be a great way to get planning for the future.
