Weds, 21st  June – 6:30pm – The Fall of Byron Montrose; Poet, Gentleman, Lover – The Nottingham New Theatre

We’ve seen this show before and loved it! Byron is a pun filled comedy story telling show with breaks for bad poetry. It debuted at the Nottingham Comedy Festival in November to a sellout crowd and has toured across the country. Think Don Juan meets Tim Vine. This venue is based on the UoN campus but shows are varied and open to anyone. It’s not just student performances!
