The Venue

kings head festival

Downstairs at the Kings Head is perhaps best known as one of the oldest comedy clubs in Britain, specialising in presenting great entertainment in a friendly and intimate environment.

Founded in 1981 by Peter Grahame and Huw Thomas, the venue now presents shows throughout the week that champion the best of the new, be it stand-up comedy, sketch shows, music, spoken word, magic or dance.

A favourite of both audiences and performers, the venue prides itself on creating the right ambience for each event and providing unbeatable value for money.

You’d be hard pushed to find any top comic who hasn’t passed through the doors of this place on their way up, and the venue are privileged to find that most continue to perform with them long after they’ve become “too big.”

Downstairs at the Kings Head is an old friend of Sketch Club. We’re delighted that they’ve once again allowed us to host this very special season of sketch comedy in their famous old club.
