"Things quickly got out of hand and hilarious mayhem ensued......they were flummoxed by goblins, cut apart by spinning blades and crushed by flying bricks as the crowd watched on with tears of laughter" Express & Star

Five dungeoneers took to the stage for a shot at glory.....and all five failed. Knightmare Live got rave reviews when it made its debut at Brierley Hill Civic Hall last April - and we're delighted to announce Treguard is coming back to try and find some more brave dungeoneers to take on Lord Fear.

 It offers YOU the chance to wear the iconic helmet of justice and play the dungeon. Every show is different, every room holds a new challenge. Fancy your chances, watchers of illusion? The critically acclaimed comedy stage adaption of the cult TV classic is now bigger and better than ever. Multiple contestants will be able to take part in an entirely improvised adventure against Lord Fear or one of the other agents of evil.

We're back with another corker of a line-up on Friday May 18 - and this time our headliner is the best-selling comedian ever at the Edinburgh Fringe!

JASON BYRNE’S inspired, original brand of high-energy lunacy ensures that there is no other comedian like him. His free-wheeling style makes his act a helter-skelter of a show – where the audience are promised the ride of their lives.

His sell-out shows have attracted accolades including nominations for both the Perrier Newcomer Award and the Perrier Award itself.

His television credits include Live At The Apollo (BBC), Dave's One Night Stand (Dave), The Channel 4 Comedy Gala (C4) and John Bishop's Only Joking (Sky One). He is currently one of the judges alongside Louis Walsh in the first ever series of Ireland's Got Talent.

"Unmissable" Evening Standard

"Full on, doubled up, gasping for oxygen hilarious" Chortle

"An hour of stand-up so joyous the clinically depressed should get it on prescription" Metro

PETE FIRMAN'S skill for fusing magic and comedy has made him one of the most in-demand magicians working in British television, writing and performing in magic shows such as Monkey Magic (Ch5), Dirty Tricks and Derren Brown's 3D Magic Spectacular (C4) and The Secret World of Magic (Sky One).

He has also made dozens of guest appearances on programmes like The One Show, The John Bishop Show, BBC Breakfast, Celebrity Mastermind, Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford, and This Morning.

"The new poster-boy for British comedy magic" The Telegraph

"Scintillating magic tricks from an ebullient comedy mind" The Independent

"A gob-smackingly talented magician....equally good at stand-up and boasts immaculate timing" Metro

BRENDON BURNS is an Australian stand-up comedian and author whose television career began alongside Sascha Baron Cohen and Ricky Gervais on The 11 O'Clock Show (C4). But he is probably best known for his fearsome live solo shows, currently tallying at 18, with 10 albums and six live CDs to his name.

He has become one of the most respected voices in comedy over the past 20 years, and commands a devoted following. Critically acclaimed, a comic's comic, and something of a cult figure. But above all, interesting.

"The single most jaw-dropping, awkward, yet ultimately rewarding bit of stand-up we have ever seen" Time Out London

"Not only has he been pushing back the boundaries of taste for years, I'm quite certain he has no idea where they are" Jimmy Carr

"I think it's got to the stage now where we can officially call Brendon Burns a legend" London Evening Standard

“Roll up, roll up! Take your seats for the Greatest Show on Earth!” Yes, Doreen’s unique travelling  Circus of Loffs is coming to town.

In her brand new show, Doreen explores the fascinating history of the circus, including a peek behind the weird and wonderful Victorian freak shows. But according to Doreen, the whole world is a circus, so expect to be launched like a cannonball into all manner of modern-day freakery – including an hilarious look at the Westminster circus, and some of the clowns who try and run the country.

Marvel at Doreen’s breathtaking feats of laziness, gasp in disbelief as she tackles the elephant in the room, juggles with a couple of big ideas, walks a death-defying tightrope of political correctness with no safety net, and attempts fire-eating with a Black Country vindaloo. Add a liberal dash of video magic, and some truly unforgettable musical moments, and you have a recipe for a Big Top full of loffs, Doreen-style.

It’s the 250th anniversary of the circus.  Send in the clowns.
