Comedy Cottage: February

Your award-winning local community comedy club!

February is heart awareness month and all affairs of the heart which means it’s time for our annual anti-Valentine’s show in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

Top TV circuit and international comedians perform alongside rising stars. We always aim for a smorgasbord of a line-up, offering something for everyone. The Cottage prides itself in consistently booking the most diverse line-ups on the UK comedy circuit.

Your hearts will burst for joy at the awesome line-up we have for you this month! House tunes from our resident maestro Pete Dennis.
