Co-host of Sony Gold Award winning BBC Radio 4 series The Infinite Monkey Cage, Robin Ince, joins star of Live At The Apollo and two-time Comedian’s Choice Award winner, Laura Lexx, for the final FREE Your Place Comedy live streamed show, hosted by resident compere Tim FitzHigham.

As well as presenting The Infinite Monkey Cage alongside Professor Brian Cox, both on the radio and in a hugely successful live arena tour, Robin also co-hosts the podcast Robin And Josie’s Book Shambles, which gains over 100,000 listeners a month. As a stand-up he has toured the world and won three Chortle Awards, the Time Out Outstanding Achievement Award and was nominated for the British Comedy Awards’ Best Live Show. Robin has created, curated, pioneered and hosted numerous nights mixing science, music and comedy, including the hugely acclaimed Nine Lessons and Carols for Curious People.

Along with Live At The Apollo, Laura’s TV and radio credits include Hypothetical (Dave), Roast Battle (Comedy Central) and The Comedy Club (BBC Radio 4 Extra). She has twice won Best Show at the Comedian’s Choice Awards, voted for entirely by fellow comics, and landed a coveted place in Dave’s Top 10 Jokes Of The Edinburgh Fringe. Laura recently released her first book, Klopp Actually: (Imaginary) Life With Football’s Most Sensible Heartthrob, after going viral during lockdown with her fictional Twitter thread about marriage to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp!

Hosted by Tim FitzHigham (writer and star of BBC Radio 4’s The Gambler, presenter of CBBC’s Super Human Challenge and Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee), this is the sixth and final (for now, at least) live streamed comedy show put together by a group of 10 small, independent theatres and arts centres from across Yorkshire and the Humber, supporting performers and continuing to bring live entertainment to their audiences during some challenging times.

The event is FREE to watch but there will be an option to donate if you have enjoyed the broadcast, with all money raised being distributed equally among the participating venues (including this one!) as they continue to face significant difficulties presenting live events while social distancing regulations remain in place.

The Town Hall is now closed until further notice. We have worked hard to reschedule as many shows as possible, but sadly some have had to be cancelled altogether. A full list can be found below.

We have sent e-mails out to ticket holders for shows which have been rescheduled.

Tickets to these shows will automatically be transferred to the new date. If you are unable to make the rearranged show, we will of course be happy to provide a full refund. If you would like to be refunded, please call 01757 708449 with a debit or credit card to hand.

All those who had tickets to cancelled shows which required a refund should now have been contacted. If you had a ticket to a cancelled show and have not yet received a refund, please call 01757 708449. This is a large operation and while we have tried our hardest to ensure that everyone is contacted, it's possible that some may have slipped through the net.

The last few months have been tough for everyone, including the live entertainment industry. We would love to be able to re-open and welcome back the wonderful audiences who make the Town Hall tick, but sadly we are unable to do this until it is safe, practical and financially viable. Under current social distancing regulations it's possible to fit a maximum of 26 people in the building...and we'd have to turn our operation on its head in order to do this in a safe, compliant manner. Unfortunately there are very few shows which are viable with an audience of just 26. We are also very conscious that the warm, friendly and intimate environment which we strive to create for every Town Hall event would be significantly diminished, and we don't want to deliver a night out which feels awkward and stressful rather than joyous and fun. Our doors will remain closed until it is possible to operate in a way which allows us to deliver a safe, practical and enjoyable experience. Hopefully this will be sooner rather than later. In the meantime, we are investigating alternative options for delivering great content while the venue is closed - watch this space!

To all our customers, you are fantastic. We are incredibly grateful for the support you have given, and continue to give, to the venue. Please to stay safe and to look after one another, and we hope to see you back again for some much needed live entertainment as soon as we are able to re-open.
