A NEW comedy club is set open in Bridgwater next month.

Work has already begun to convert the former Spennys Sports Bar on Eastover, into a new comedy club called quartz (spelt with a lower case q to represent 'understated quality').

Spennys Sports Bar did not re-open its doors after the Covid-19 lockdown.

But now, the new quartz club, will re-open its doors with a launch night on Friday, December 3.

The launch will include a night of stand up comedy from various comedians, including Matthew Bayliss, Danny Buckler, Connor Drum, Mo Magaleo and Fran Kissling.

The night is hosted by Howard Brown (from the Halifax advert), and Miss England.

“We’re so lucky to have such an amazing space to launch a dedicated comedy club," said the team at quartz.

"It’s a brilliant two floor venue with a London club atmosphere and immense potential for a really good fun night out - it is just what the area needs.

"We’re working long hours but all having a lot of fun pulling the place into shape and we're all really looking forward to welcoming customers, family and friends both locally and from much further afield.

"Laughing is proven to be therapeutic and who doesn’t need a night of hearty belly laughter after everything the country’s been through recently?"

Doors open at 7pm, and the show starts at 8pm on launch night.

Tickets cost £15. There are concession tickets available for NHS workers, students, armed forces members, and OAPs.

There are also VIP packages available, which include fastrack entry, a private table, champagne on arrival, strawberry, vodka and cream shot, quartz wrap around mug and there will be a photo opportunity with Miss England and Howard Brown.

After the launch event, quartz will be open five days a week from Wednesday until Sunday, and doors will open at 7pm.

There is a night with Tom Deacon on January 14 2022, and an evening with Jeff Innocent on May 28 2022.

On Wednesdays, there will be a student night, and on Fridays, there will be a live stand up comedy event.
