A Brand New Venue for the “Brand New” Comedy Showcase

Last year we lovingly restored an old shop which had stood for more than 5 decades in the centre of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter. If you followed the transformation you’ll know that we were eager to retain the some of building’s quirky historic features to provide a contemporary multi-functional creative work space; in hope of connecting with the community and other businesses within the area.

We’re pleased to announce that this February our swanky new venue will be used by Proper Funny Comedy to host the “Brand New” Comedy Showcase, which is part of the Leicester Comedy Festival.  The event will take place on the 16th February at SomeBrightSpark and promises to provide us with an array of emerging comedic stand-up talents.

‘Throughout the restoration process we’d always remained open to the idea of allowing people and businesses to utilise the space – particularly for creative projects. We’re eager to show off the versatility of the space and what better way to do this than to host a comedy event?’

(Dan Rogers, Creative Producer & Managing Director)

The show starts at 8-10pm. The event is FREE but you must book tickets online prior to the event, which you can do here.
