Thursday Is Arts Day

Thursday nights at the Holly Bush are Arts nights.

A mix of open mic comedy, spoken word, poetry, raw writing / play read throughs and original music.

Come and join in, or enjoy watching creative juices flow in a warm, supportive environment.

Comedy Shows

The Holly Bush has hosted a regular comedy night since 2006 and hundreds of comedians began their journey stood in front of the purple curtain.

Local TV comedian Joe Lycett started at The Bush. Pro comic Gary Delaney even performed at The Bush once… to Dave Francis (landlord), Dave Dinsdale and a bloke with a dog! We have seen comedians grow and become professional club circuit stars. They all come back to The Bush to try out new material.
