Newcastle’s The Stand is long established as a home to a wealth of comedy talent, with the superbly ran comedy club excelling as one of the best in the country. It’s now cemented itself as a cornerstone of comedy in the city for seven years, and it’s ready to mix things up a little.

The food-focused Bistro is no more as of Monday 10th September, with the ground level above the comedy club now setting itself up as one of the best bars in town, and something a little different from anywhere else. A few refreshing changes have served up a whole new vibe for the awesome bar setting while they’re still offering up some smashing food from a whole new menu.

They’re celebrating even further on Monday 10th, with a special show for all the changes and a Best Of Northern Comedy Gala. Local talents Steffen PeddieLee KyleKatherine TanneyMike MilliganLouise YoungJohn WhaleSeymour Mace and Gavin Webster provide the laughs. Viz creator Simon Donald will be producing an A1 size drawing which will be auctioned on the night with proceeds going to The People’s Kitchen.

It sounds like a pretty sweet birthday party to us, and here’s to another seven years (and more!).

The Stand’s 7th Birthday and The Best Of Northern Comedy Gala is at The Stand, Newcastle on Monday 10th September.
