A new monthly comedy night is coming to The Palace in Longridge.


The night is the brainchild of local sound and lighting company, Vertigo Sound. Monthly slots have been booked after a successful trial run.

Co-director of Vertigo Sound Ethan Cooper said: “While doing some work at The Palace last year, my business partner Mark Shepherd and I realised it would be a great venue for comedy.

“Having been involved with the comedy shows at the Guild Hall we both knew how well they went down, and so when the Guild shut we decided we would try and continue those nights elsewhere.

“We put on a run of comedy nights, which went down a storm, so we have decided to book in another six for 2020, along with one on New Year’s Eve.”

The New Year’s Eve gig will open with Karen Bayley followed by Tom Taylor and headliner Sully O’Sullivan. Cerys Nelmes will be MC. Tickets are priced at £25 per person and can be bought online. For more information about the night, see the Facebook event page.

The 2020 dates will take place on the last Friday of each month, and are currently scheduled from January until June.

Ethan said: “We would really love for these nights to become a permanent monthly club and help to put Longridge on the comedy map. We hope to make people more aware of The Palace to help ensure it is still open in years to come.”
