Paul Tonkinson, comedian performing at a show

Ironbridge Lates - Comedy Night

  • 7 September 2018 7-10:15pm

Don't miss our first ever comedy night - this promises to be a hugely popular and entertaining evening with a line-up of high profile celebrity comedians.

Our compare for the night is Tony Meresse. His compering style centres on making the audience very much a part of the show but in a way that the audience feel little pressure or embarrassment about being a part of the show (even if some were the butt of his jokes!)

Jonny Awsum exploded onto the comedy scene with a crowd-pleasing set, performing his special feel-good brand of musical comedy all over the world and becoming a much sought-after live act. Jonny will be familiar to views of ITV's Britain's Got Talent where he made it through to the live semi-finals. His performances on the show have been viewed more than 10 million times on YouTube!

Our headliner is Paul Tonkinson - a sensational live performer, Yorkshire man, marathon runner and former (double award-winning) Time Out Comedian of the Year, Paul has long upheld his esteemed reputation as one of the finest stand-ups the UK has to offer. With a unique and distinctive style, he's noted for his effervescent physicality and skillful impressions, which bring alive exuberant, tender comic reflections on love, family and the day-to-day idiosyncrasies of 21st century living. A plethora of first class material, combined with tremendous charm and irrepressible, infectious energy make for quite a formidable talent.

Paul has joined the mighty Michael McIntyre several times as a special guest on live shows around the UK and on global arena tours.

Known to TV viewers Paul's appeared on shows such as BBC One’s Michael Mcintyre’s Comedy Roadshow and Comedy Central’s The Comedy Store and The World Stands-up.

People dancing at a disco

Ironbridge Lates - Silent Disco

  • 5 October 2018 7-11pm

A silent disco has much in common with a regular disco or party, with one noticeable difference…there’s no music! That is until you put on a pair of headphones. Then you share in the experience of listening to up to 2 DJs playing at the same time, in the same room. But don’t worry, there is no horrible sound clash! Each pair of headphones has 2 channels chosen by a simple switch on the side of the headset, allowing you to choose your preferred choice of DJ/music.

Tickets are £12 per person. The event will run from 7pm-11pm in the Engine Shop, Coalbrookdale.

This event is suitable for people aged 18+. There will be a cash bar available throughout the night.
