It’s been 10 years since author, dream-weaver and visionary Garth Marenghi showed us his Darkplace – and television has been all the worse since the series ended. For this celebration of the most innovative comedy Channel 4 ever had the balls to produce (for a bit at least) before they decided to put all their effort into exploiting the poor in reality shows, Gorilla, in conjunction with Grimm Up North, will be screening all six episodes that made it to the small screen. This special night also features Matthew Holness (Garth Marenghi/Dr Rick Dagless, creator and writer) and Alice Lowe (Madeleine Wool/Dr Liz Asher) for a Q&A with Empire Magazine’s Chris Hewitt. Tickets should fly out – so be sure to get yours immediately (and get one for your buddy too).

Sun 18 May, Gorilla, 54-56 Whitworth Street, M1 5WW, 3pm – 8pm, £15 adv,
