If it’s laughter you’re after, head for a north-east Derbyshire pub this month.

A new comedy night will be launched at The Dronfield Arms, in Dronfield, on Wednesday, March 21.

The monthly ‘Winner Takes All’ event kicks off at 8pm sharp with a cracking line up of comedians set to perform. At the end of the evening, the audience vote for the best act, with the winner pocketing £50.

Compering the action is award-winning comedian Anthony J. Brown who has featured in ‘The Stand Up Show’ and ‘Phoenix Nights’. Former BBC New Comedy Award winner, Anthony has been described as ‘so effortlessly quick witted he should be tested for comedy steroids after every gig’.

Dronfield Arms landlord Lee Bradshaw said: “This is a first for Dronfield. We’ve worked hard to find the freshest emerging comedy names alongside a seriously talented compere. At just £3 a ticket cheap midweek laughs and great beer are guaranteed.”

Tickets for the show are available now or on the night and cost just £2 in advance or £3 on the door. Contact or call 07834 950693 for tickets. Full details:

The Dronfield Arms ‘Winner Takes All’ comedy night opens on Wednesday 21st March. Subsequent dates for the Winner Takes All comedy nights will be the second Wednesday of each month; April 11, May 9, June 13, July 11 and August 8.
