Alan Carr is a sell-out in Melksham

ALAN Carr, star of Channel 4’s Chatty Man, will be coming to Melksham to try out new material at a sold-out gig at the Assembly Hall. 

The TV funny man has joined the list of illustrious names to have appeared in Melksham in recent years with Lee Evans and Jethro appearing recently.

Alan Carr will appear on stage on Sunday 9th November as part of his preparations for a forthcoming UK tour called Yap, Yap, Yap! He will be working from notes to a capacity audience after tickets were snapped up quickly.

People queued  outside the Assembly Hall from the early hours of Sunday 26th October to ensure they got a seat to the event which eventually sold-out within 24 hours.

Miriam Zaccarelli from Melksham Town Council said, “It is great that these big names want to come to Melksham time and time again, it shows how much the town is moving forwards.

“We decided to put the tickets on sale on a Sunday to give as many people as possible an opportunity to get one and people were outside queuing from the early hours. I am sure it will be a great show and another night for Melksham to remember.”

Other live entertainment is also coming up at Melksham Assembly Hall with classic plays A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Macbeth set to screened from The Globe Theatre – the spiritual home of Shakespeare. Macbeth takes place at 7pm on Friday 7th November at 7pm with tickets costing £8. A Midsummer Night’s Dream takes place on Friday 5th December and again tickets are priced at £8.

Tickets are available from the Assembly Hall – 01225 704187. For more information visit their website www.melkshamassemblyhall.com
