Step inside the iconic Bristol Hippodrome for a mesmerising evening of live music-to-film in an event showcasing your all-time favourite comedy stars.

This spectacular classic comedy gala is perfect for film and comedy fans of all ages.

Your host for the evening will be the comedian, actor and satirist Marcus Brigstocke.

Highlights from the evening include a complete screening of Charlie Chaplin’s outstanding comedy masterpiece Modern Times (1936) on a vast HD screen, while Chaplin’s own acclaimed score is performed live by a 40-piece orchestra: Bristol Ensemble conducted by maestro Günter A. Buchwald. It features several of the most celebrated sequences in comic cinema. The score, by Chaplin himself, is performed in a restored version and includes a romantic theme that would be made famous through the hit song “Smile”. Plus short comedies from Laurel & Hardy and Buster Keaton, both with live musical accompaniment, additional entertainment from the brilliant comedian magician John Archer and live pre-show entertainment in the foyer from Circomedia.

It all makes for a truly thrill-packed evening not to be missed.
