Chateau plans Droitwich's next stand-up night after success

Droitwich Editorial 16th May, 2015 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016

THE CHATEAU Impney’s first ever comedy night was such a success plans are already being made for another show.

Organisers were proud to present not one but four star headliners for 700 happy guests who were all left in stitches of laughter and begging for more after the big extravaganza.

Comics such as Jason Byrne, Hal Cruttenden, Justin Moorhouse and Gary Delaney all took to the stage in the Regent Centre on May 1 for a truly memorable evening.

Organisers have now revealed they are hoping to make the next event even bigger and better with guests maybe reaching more than 1,000 and another top four acts which will blow people away on a whole new level.

It is hoped the next comedy evening will be held around Christmastime.

The evening was not held in the main hotel but in the Regent Centre which left many guests in awe on arrival, as many did not know it was even there, despite it being one of the largest exhibition spaces in the Midlands, being able to host up to 1,250 people.

Ben Elder, hotel manager, said he was so pleased with how well the evening went.

“The reaction on the night and the feedback we have had back since has been overwhelming.

“A lot of work goes into it and a lot of planning – it is a lot of hard work but I was looking forward to it.

“I was nervous, as there was quite a cross section of ages and people in the audience but the four guys got the balance perfect and it seemed to go down well across the board.

“We have had nice comments back from all the acts too.

“Jason Byrne, who was the main act of the evening, said he thought the crowd were excellent and really responsive.

“All the acts also thought the venue was great and that it worked very well for them and said they would be telling their fellow comics about it, which is great for Droitwich.”
