The second lockdown has upended a lot of best laid plans, especially those of new comedy night A Lovely Time with Amy Gledhill and friends. After selling out their debut show due to take place on Saturday 7 November in just under 48 hours they were gearing up to announce a second December show. Not to be deterred though, Amy Gledhill and her comedy pals have simply shifted to Saturday 12 December at Grub’s event space Chapeltown Picture House – and to ensure even more people can have a lovely time, they’ve added a matinee show.

The debut incarnation of the stand-up showcase includes Chris Washington (as seen on Mock the Week), Wire favourite Jain Edwards, Jonny Pelham (recently on BBC’s Stand Up For Live Comedy) and host Amy Gledhill (Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated as part of The Delightful Sausage). A great lineup at any time of year (or indeed time of day) but when we’ve been starved of live comedy so much this year, it may be the best lineup of 2020. Just in time too!

Sat 12 Dec, 3pm & 7pm, Chapeltown Picture House,
GRUB, 50 Red Bank, Manchester M4 4HF
, £12, Noon - 10pm
