First Thursday is moving upstairs to the more socially-distanced Derby Hall, and the bigger space promises to bring you even bigger laughs than before.
Celebrate England’s first day out of lockdown with a fantastic evening of live comedy, featuring Simon Lomas, Channel 4’s Tez Ilyas (★★★★★ Mirror), and of course the unforgettable Justin Moorhouse (“Charms the pants off the crowd” Sunday Times).
Your host for the evening is Mick Ferry (“See him or regret it” John Bishop).

When “the boss” is busy on Broadway, The Springsteen Sessions keep it live in the UK.
With The Boss busy with his Broadway show, Springsteen fans have been starved of his live shows for two years. Well, panic no more – the famine is over.
Top tribute band The Springsteen Sessions have been around since 2011, bringing their authentic and thrilling show to thousands of people at theatres, clubs and festivals across the UK. If you want to hear the closest thing to the original, then this is for you.
Far from trying to be a lookalike act, the seven top quality players who make up The Springsteen Sessions are totally immersed in the forty plus year career of The Boss, and are seasoned musicians with a mighty sound that will leave you enthralled, excited, energised – and gagging for more. They cover over four decades of Springsteen, including classics Born To Run, 10th Avenue Freeze Out, Jungleland, Rosalita and more.
For the true fan this will be a journey that they’ll never want to end – close your eyes and you’re there.
This event has been rescheduled from Saturday 18 April.
