DRUNKEN NIGHTS is a series of performance events in pubs. Each night features a range of live performers, who have taken inspiration from the traditions of the Great British pub. With unexpected theatre, off-beat stand-up comedy, experimental dance – and maybe even a good old fashioned sing-song. All of the acts take place in the main bar area so you can enjoy the evening from the comfort of your own bar stool with your tipple of choice.
DRUNKEN NIGHTS is coming to Preston for the first time. Join us at this special event to launch the 2015 / 2016 season.
