Comedy in Coalbrookdale

The vale of Coalbrookdale has long played host to the clanging sounds of industry, but on Friday 7 September the wooded valley will be echoing to a different noise – gales of laughter. A new comedy night taking place at the Engine Shop at Enginuity, Coalbrookdale on Friday 7 September will bring top-quality comedians to Ironbridge as part of the Ironbridge Lates programme.

The entertaining line-up includes YouTube favourite and Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist Jonny Awsum (pictured), and former Time Out Comedian of the Year, effervescent impressionist Paul Tonkinson. Compere for the night is Tony Meresse, who centres on making the audience feeling part of the show without pressure or embarrassment – even if some are the butt of his jokes!

Doors open at 7pm and the performance starts at 8pm; there will be a cash bar. Tickets must be purchased in advance, priced at £20. Annual Passport Tickets are not valid for this evening. For details, call 01952 433424 or visit
