We're Going Back to the Fringe! Book your tickets here :)
Back for a second year, The Birmingham Footnotes Comedy Society present their mix of high energy, almost absurd and delightfully daft sketches. ‘Charming, funny and self-aware in the best possible way’ **** (EdFringeReview.com). ‘They may seem like a bunch of nutters, but the Footnotes are wonderfully adept at making people laugh as much and as hard as possible’ (Redbrick Newspaper).

Thanks to everyone who attended and if you missed it, I’m certain you’ve not heard the last from Holsam.
Coming frighteningly soon…
February 22nd & 23rd at 7:30 in the Amos Room
