Live at Ally Pally will bring a wonderful selection of indoor comedy shows, gigs and entertainment to the famous venue.
Despite the events of the year, Alexandra Palace has really managed to give the people what they want. First a new beer garden, then a nude art installation, and now Live at Ally Pally, which will bring a whole season of live comedy, music, and entertainment to the West Hall. Indoor shows have been prohibited at the venue since March, but that’s all about to change.
From October 15 to November 22, a range of socially distanced performances will be happening at Alexandra Palace, and there’ll be something for everyone. In need of a proper laugh? Tired of the joke that is 2020? Well, you’re in luck. A number of the finest stand-up comedians will be performing at Ally Pally on Thursdays and Saturdays, starting with the famous Al Murray. Other big names on the line-up are Dara O’Briain, Phil Wang, Russel Kane, Angela Barnes and Adam Hill.
The award-winning theatre company Sh!t-faced Shakespeare will also be performing a NSFW rendition of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. For the music fans out there, The Comet Is Coming will welcome a fusion of Afrofuturist, jazz, and electronic sounds onto the stage, and live sets from DJ Sasha have also been scheduled.
Most importantly, the venue have implemented a number of precautions to keep everyone safe, including a limit of six guests per table, a new table service that will bring tasty street food and drinks straight to you, and a 10pm finish for all shows, to be in line with the newest government curfew.
The Chief Executive of Alexandra Palace, Louise Stewart, said “Like many organisations across the country we have faced and continue to face some incredibly difficult times. Live at Ally Pally feels like the next logical step. We’re thrilled to be able to welcome audiences back into our building next month for some of the best in live entertainment.”
It sounds like they’re just as excited about the new season as we are! Head to their website for more info and to book your tickets.
