A THEATRICAL BAR in Hinckley have announced that their comedy night which was set to take place next month has been cancelled.
Revival on Regent Street had planned to hold their first-ever stand-up comedy night next month on 12 September, titled “Sunday Laughs”, which would have featured local and renound comedians from the Collywobblers Comedy Club.
But, last week (7 August), a shock announcement was made on Facebook by a Revival spokesperson which stated that the event would no longer be going ahead as originally planned.
The Revival spokesperson explained that the event had been cancelled ‘due to Collywobblers Comedy pulling out due to the influence of another business in the town’.
They stressed that they were ‘extremely disappointed’ to make the announcement as they believe that ‘Hinckley deserves good things’.
“It’d be a much better day when the restaurants and bars of Hinckley decide to start working together again, like the good old days when Hinckley was one of the busiest towns in Leicestershire. We all have the same goals”, it continued.
At the end of the post, the venue asked for recommendations for other comedians or comedy shows that would like to get involved for any future events, as they still want to be able to offer revellers with these ‘special’ events.
