Live Comedy At Nantwich Civic Hall


The Very Best In Stand Up takes place on the first weekend of the month at Nantwich Civic Hall. Bringing four top comics every month, the show features the best from the National and International comedy circuits for a great ticket price.


For the remaining shows until June 2020, tickets will be priced at £10. From September 2020, tickets will increase to £12. The cost of bringing the best acts to Nantwich has risen each year but we've managed to hold prices since 2011. Unfortunately, it's now become a necessity to raise the ticket prices but rest assured that we will continue to bring the very best acts to every one of our shows.

Information regarding upcoming shows and the impact of Coronavirus

With the new guidelines set in place allowing live indoor events, we are getting this question asked more and more so wanted to give an update on where we are right now with comedy at the Civic. If you’re impatient, the short answer is not yet, hopefully soon!


To expand on that, we know that some venues are opening up now and running their shows in a much more restricted capacity – all socially distanced and up to 75% less in the audience numbers, but with a higher ticket price. One thing that we’ve all learnt is that COVID19 is not going away anytime soon and neither are the restrictions. It may be that our only way back at the start is a lower capacity, increased ticket price show but only when we, along with Nantwich Civic Hall , are confident of a show managed safely and in an environment where people will actually want to sit and watch live comedy.


  • When Will Shows Be Back To Normal?
    Of course, this is hard to say. I’m sure, like us, you long for the days of Pre-COVID. The answer is simple – once guidelines allow, we hope to be back in the usual guise bringing you great comedy.Whatever shows have taken place in that time will be replaced by the old format.


  • September 2020 would have been the first show of a brand new season, and by now we would have communicated that tickets were rising to £12 for our standard nights. This was in the planning stages of being rolled out long before COVID and prices are increasing simply because we’ve charged (and paid our acts) the same for 10 years now. In order to bring the very best acts to Nantwich, we need to maintain a middle ground of paying acts fairly and charging for tickets fairly. We still think (and hope you’ll agree) that £12 still represents one of the cheapest ways to watch four headline comedians on one bill across the North West and beyond. We plan to bring even more top quality acts to the shows and even more top names.


  • When Will I Know When New Shows Are Announced?
    If you follow our Facebook page, we’ll update there but the easiest way is to pop your email address to our mailing list on the website at and you’ll be first to hear of the first live shows coming back to Nantwich Civic Hall.

Tickets are purchased for The Very Best In Stand Up and not for any acts listed as these are subject to change. Over 18's Only. Discretion is advised if you think you may be offended.
