Since opening in 2021, Whitley Bay’s fringe theatre and nightspot Laurel’s has swiftly become a magnet for artists and audiences looking for something a little different, with the venue playing host to off-the-wall comedy, quirky theatre productions and decidedly outside the mainstream productions.

This month Laurel’s has plenty to sink your teeth into, starting with Fesshole on Wednesday 12th, in which Rob Manuel promises to bring “the internet’s naughtiest, funniest, cringiest confessions to the Bay”. The Club will be a long-running highlight throughout July (Tuesday 4thSaturday 22nd), offering an immersive trip back to 1975 that vows to recreate the lively atmosphere of Club life. Comedian Stanley Brookes is at the venue on Wednesday 26th to teach you how to be rich; whereas on Thursday 27th-Friday 28th The Merry Wives is a modern telling of the Bard’s play. Also on Thursday 27th, Creepy Boys is described as “Oh Hello meets those twins from The Shining, meets My Super Sweet 16”, which is likely as bonkers as it sounds. Saturday 29th sees another double bill of shows including A Slice Of Elvis, comedian Mike McAlpine’s hilarious escapades as an Elvis tribute artist, and comedian Phil Green’s midlife crisis influenced Four Weddings And A Breakdown. Finally, on Sunday 30th, How To Survive And Thrive In An Impossible World – With A Piano is an interactive show with award-winning psychologist and songwriter Steve Bonham and composer and musician Chris ‘The Bishop’ Lydon.
