ISIHAC recording cancelled over theatre double-booking

A recording of Radio 4’s I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue has been cancelled – after the venue got double-booked.

Two episodes‭ ‬of the ‘antidote to panel games’ were due to be taped at the‭ ‬Belgrade Theatre‭ ‬in Coventry on January‭ ‬18.

However‭, ‬the show's producer Jon Naismith‭ ‬has sent an email to fans explaining that the gig had been cancelled ‘due‭ ‬to the fact that the theatre managed to double-book us‭, ‬and took three‭ ‬months to discover their error‭.‬’

The production team are now seeking an alternative venue for this recording‭.‬

Other shows for the‭ ‬forthcoming 54th series of the show, to be hosted by Jack Dee again, will be recorded at Leeds Town Hall‭ ‬later this month‭ ‬and at the Hawth Theatre in‭ ‬Crawley just before Christmas‭.‬
