Dear Cottagers!

The award winning Comedy Cottage returns this month Friday 29th June - which will be our last show (before the Summer break) at the Harlequin Theater till we return there September 28th. We have another stellar line-up of comedians. A wonderful smorgasboard of talent, something for everyone! So don't miss out on what promises to be a night of much laughter and merriment!


Headlining for us this month a real treat!



Mark Dolan is an award-winning broadcaster and comedian, best-known as host of the iconic Channel 4 comedy series Balls of Steel, as well as his three series run of globetrotting documentaries for C4 - The Worlds And Me.
