Comedy club expands into Midlands town

Just The Tonic comedy club is launching a new venture in Leamington Spa.

The chain – which operates in Birmingham, London, Leicester, Nottingham, Reading, Watford as well as at the Edinburgh Fringe  – will be running a monthly gig at the Leamington Assembly Hall.

Reginald D Hunter will headline the first gig in the Warwickshire town on Saturday February 8, supported by Andrew O’Neill, Guz Khan and  Matt Richardson. Full listings are here.

The art-deco building, constructed in 1926, had fallen into disrepair and closed last June – only to re-open three months later with new owners 

Darrell Martin, Just the Tonic’s director, said: ’It is very exciting to see this great Grade II listed building alive again, it is a really fantastic space for comedy.  I’m looking forward to seeing hundreds of people laughing to what we do best.
