Statement on Reopening

The government has today confirmed that restrictions around capacity at music venues will be lifted as of next Monday.

This means that we can finally dance again! We will be reopening for all planned gigs and events from WED 21st JULY, with the front bar reopening every day for our regulars too. We’ve got a cracking summer of shows in the calendar; head HERE to take a look….

However, as we move towards ‘personal responsibility’, we’d like to encourage our customers to treat each other and staff with respect. These are strange times, and in order to pull through this, respect needs to be at the heart of what we do not just as a venue, but as a society.
Here are some brief guidelines on how things will be working at The Crescent.

Burning Duck Comedy – Lou Sanders: Say Hello To Your New Step-Mummy

It’s me, Loulie, AKA the face that launched a thousand dicks! In this show I’ll examine relationships (all kinds, baby), mental health (other people’s, I’m fine) and perverts (that one is mainly me, actually).

He has a vast catalog of lilting, pop-infused, 60’s and 70’s influenced records to pull from and very likely some new material and new arrangements to boot.
