Lecture Theatre

7.30-9pm. £10, includes a glass of wine or a soft drink. Tickets available from TicketSource or on the door on the night.

Back for a fourth time by popular demand, comedians will once again become curators and give illuminating talks on some of the objects in the Grosvenor Museum. The catch? It’s all a lie – they’ve never seen any of the slides before, have no idea what most of the objects are and will be making it all up on the spot, with hilarious results!

The evening will once again be hosted by Chester comedian Danny McLoughlin, whose easy charm and instinctive sense of humour is the perfect backdrop for the guest comics who join him. A regular performer at the UK’s biggest comedy clubs, Danny has supported numerous acts on tour including Sarah Millican and Sean Lock.

This perfect mix of culture and comedy – a sort of Whose Time Team is it Anyway? mash-up – cheerfully interprets significant historical objects with absolutely no regard for what they actually are. Prepare to be amazed by the comics’ ingenuity and lateral thinking! Also occasionally vaguely startled by what they come up with!

 

Doors open at 7.15pm. There will be an interval at approximately 8.10pm. Please note that this event contains adult language.
