The Canalhouse

With the largest beer selection in the East Midlands and a canal that extends into the building, Canalhouse is one of the most unique venues in Nottingham...

Canalhouse stocks 250+ beers from around the world and has ten craft kegs on the taps, as well as more taps and cask pumps than anyone can count. However, due to its nautical and classical look, the choice never feels intimidating as the bar is so welcoming.

Canalhouse also has a lovely, huge outdoor seating area that is dotted with fairy lights and overlooks the canal. They also host the city famous comedy nights which cost but a mere pound for entry.

  • Nottingham Comedy Festival: Alfie Moore: Its A Fair Cop: Work In Progress at Canalhouse

    Sunday 08 November 2020 17:30 - 18:30

    Join Humberside police sergeant-turned- comedian Alfie Moore for an hilarious, interactive work in progress ahead of recording the sixth series of his critically acclaimed BBC Radio 4 comedy show ‘IT’S A FAIR COP’.
     
    Alfie ‘swears in’ the audience as police officers and takes them through a real-life scenario from his ‘casebook’. He playfully challenges them with moral dilemmas, that police officers face every day, and invites them to contribute the real-time policing decisions that they would make - with often unexpected and entertaining results!
     
    It’d be a crime to miss it.

    On the 14th March 2020 Scott did what was to be his last real life stand up gig for about six months. He then found himself alone, in his garden shed with time to kill. This show is the result of that time in isolation. From the creator of the viral lockdown hit, “Stand up from the shed” Double Leicester Comedy Festival Best Show Nominee, Chortle One To Watch 2018 and 2019, and Amused Moose Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee, Scott delivers another brilliant hour of brand new topical and observational stand-up comedy. 
     
    As heard on the Now Show (BBC Radio 4) Summer Comedy Festival (BBC Radio 4) Live at the Edinburgh Festival (BBC 4 Extra) The Comedy Club (BBC Radio 4) and The Jason Manford Show (Absolute Radio) 
     
    Scott has also supported Rob Brydon on his national tour and was a writer on First and Last with Jason Manford (BBC One) Little Mix The Search (BBC One) The Chris Ramsey Show (Comedy Central) Citizen of Nowhere (BBC Radio 4) and has written for Jason Manford, Rob Brydon and Daliso Chaponda.
