Monty Python Live (Mostly)
Live on The Big Screen

Sun 20 July & Sat 2 August, 7.00pm
For the first time in more than three decades, comedy legends Monty Python will perform live on stage together this year. Broadcast from London’s O2 Arena, Monty Python Live (mostly) will play in venues around the globe.

At a combined age of just 358, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin will once again perform some of their greatest hits, with modern, topical, Pythonesque twists.

Monty Python are rightfully regarded as among the world’s finest-ever comedians. They influenced a generation and revolutionised comedy. Their eagerly awaited reunion promises to be among the biggest live events of 2014.

£15 (£13 conc), £10 Gala Friends

  Funny Bones Comedy Club

Friday 15 Aug, 7.45pm
This cracking collection of comics are gathering to bring you laughs aplenty. Main man and MC Warren Speed brings you the unique and endearing Daliso Chaponda, confident Sam Gore and the self-deprecating Richard Massara. And all for under a tenner… you can’t go wrong. Contains strong language, recommended age 16+.



The Comedy Store (Sept)

Sunday 7 Sept, 7.30pm
The Comedy Store staged one of the first ever live shows at Gala. Bottom of the bill that day was an Irish comedian called Dara O’Briain. Since then a whole host of comics have passed through. Some have gone on to become household names (Michael McIntyre, Jimmy Carr, Milton Jones, Micky Flanagan). Others are just regulars on the touring circuit, performing night after night around the country.

The Comedy Store is still at the centre of Gala’s live programme and still packing them in. Once a month, every month, the format hasn’t changed much over the years, but if it ain’t broke… If you fancy a cracking evening of laughter, why not come and join the fun. Contains strong language, recommended age 16+. Why not join us for a pre-show drink between 6pm-7pm, when all beer and lager has 10% off.

£11 (£9 conc), (£8 Students and Gala Friends)


Ha Ha Hood
Starring Cannon & Ball And Su Pollard

Saturday 13 Sept, 7.30pm
After the hugely successful UK tour of Ha Ha Holmes in 2013, the Ha Ha team return by popular demand with the next instalment in the series. Ha Ha Hood stars comedy queen Su Pollard (Hi-de-Hi, You Rang, M’Lord?), comedy duo Cannon and Ball and sees the return by popular demand of Ben Langley. All accompanied on the piano by Andy Pickering. Irreverent and funny, this brand new romp will take you on an hilarious adventure through the heroic and daring world of Sherwood Forest, led by Hood and his merry men (in tights!). It’s original, clever and laugh out loud funny.

£20 (£18 Groups 10+)
