Downstairs at the Kings Head is perhaps best known as one of the oldest comedy clubs in Britain, specialising in presenting great entertainment in a friendly and intimate environment.

Founded in 1981 by Peter Grahame and Huw Thomas, the venue now presents shows throughout the week that champion the Best of the New, be it comedy, music, poetry, spoken word, magic or dance.

A favourite of both audiences and performers, the venue prides itself on creating the right ambience for each event and providing unbeatable value for money.

You’d be hard pushed to find any top comic who hasn’t passed through the doors of this venue on their way up, and the venue are privileged to find that most continue to perform with them long after they’ve become “too big.”

Friggers of Speech is delighted that Downstairs at the Kings Head has generously allowed us to present a brand new series of poetry & spoken word gigs in their famous old club.
