Tickets for Alan Carr sell out in 30 minutes

Tickets for Alan Carr sell out in 30 minutes

TICKETS for comedian Alan Carr’s show at the Kenton Theatre in Henley sold out in just half an hour.

A queue formed outside the venue in New Street on Saturday morning when tickets went on sale, with 70 per cent available at the box office and the rest online.

Theatre manager Paula Price-Davies said all those who queued received tickets as they were only allowed two per person.

She added: “The queue was as far along New Street as Saragosa House by 9am and there was a good atmosphere.

“Maddi Sharkey, along with her two daughters, entertained the waiting queue clad in her showgirl outfit from her comedy show This Show Does Not contain Nuts that she performed at the Kenton on Friday and Saturday.

“The idea behind this allocation was that our usual comedy fans and local residents stood a good chance of purchasing tickets rather than non-locals buying online.

“We announced the tickets going on sale to everyone registered on our database via email on Thursday last week.”

Carr’s performance on Sunday, March 3 will be a warm-up show for his latest tour and will feature support from rising stand-up star Angela Barnes.

Last month, tickets for Jack Dee’s performance at the Kenton on April 23 sold out in 40 minutes.
