Stratford Editorial 20th Sep, 2023   0

A luxury hotel based in the heart of Warwickshire is set to host an exclusive evening of stand-up comedy alongside a three-course dinner – as it combines the best of the region’s arts and produce.

Billesley Manor Hotel and Spa, a historic hotel situated on the outskirts of Stratford-upon-Avon, has announced it will be hosting a Comedy Night on Friday 6th October in its Topiary Suite, providing an elegant and intimate backdrop for an evening of quality laughter and food.

The lineup for the evening includes three talented comedians:

1. Alan Francis

A household name on the UK and international comedy circuit, Alan Francis has performed on stages around the world with his brilliant observational stand-up. With appearances on numerous TV shows, Alan’s sharp wit and relatable humour led him to co-author a show that was dubbed by the Guardian as a “cult success” at the Edinburgh Festival.

2. Demitris Deech

With his intellectual and playful take on life, Demitris Deech has become popular among comedy enthusiasts. His cheeky style and unique perspective make him a favourite with audiences of all backgrounds, leading to him being selected for E4’s ‘Kings of Comedy’ show. Hailing from Cheltenham, he’s also a regular comedy panellist on BBC Gloucestershire.

3. John Newton

Known for his inventive writing and mastery of a wide spectrum of subjects, John Newton is an old-fashioned gag-teller and takes pride in it. As a regular performer at The Comedy Club, his timeless and original humour is well-loved by many in today’s comedy landscape.

Laura Cherrington, Director of Sales and Marketing at Billesley Manor, said: “We’re thrilled to bring this exceptional Comedy Night to Billesley Manor. Our mission is to continually exceed our guests’ expectations by delivering remarkable experiences, and this evening is set to do just that. We can’t wait to host a grand evening filled with hearty laughter and delicious food.”

Laura continued: “We have handpicked these comedians because we know they are absolutely great. Our guests are in for a treat, as each of these talented comedians is guaranteed to deliver a night of laughter.”

Tickets for the Comedy Night, which starts at 7pm, are priced at £65 – inclusive of an evening of laughter, entertainment, and a three-course dinner by the hotel’s Executive Head Chef, Richard Dewey.
