£ Ticket Required

The following shows are ticketed.

Please note: children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

The Dark Room


The audience is trapped in a retro videogame with a sadistic end-of-level boss. Now either escape and win £1000 - or be brutally murdered by the rest of the crowd! Will you:

  • A) Find the Light Switch?
  • B) Go North?
  • C) Abandon Hope?

Filled with stand-up, appalling prizes and more audience chanting than you’d get at a protest - this is a gut-busting rock n’ roll experience for everyone who buys a ticket.

There’s also a child-friendly(ish) version, which took home Best Kid’s Show at Leicester Comedy Festival 2018.

The Incredible Playable Show

The Incredible Playable Show is an interactive video game comedy show where you, the audience, take to the stage!

Created by game developer Alistair Aitcheson the show has toured internationally and won the Jury Choice Award at IndieCade 2017.
