Comedy calling

THE Fishpond is hoping to provide all with a barrel of laughs with its biggest comedy evening yet.

Following on from a £1 million investment, manager Bob Furniss is hoping to fill the recently refurbished ballroom to capacity.

Bob said: “So many businesses in Matlock Bath cater for the tourists but we want to engage with the people who live here.

“That’s why we’re always booking high quality acts to reward everyone for putting up with us being closed for so long.”

On the bill for the evening is Archie Kelly – who played Kenny Senior on Channel 4’s Phoenix Nights – Bethany Black, Marc Smethurst, Rachel Fairburn and Tony Jameson.

Doors open at 7pm on September 12. Tickets cost £8.
