What’s On

Telford Comedy Club takes place in Oakengates on the second Tuesday most months, with our “Comedy & Curry” meal deal!  Check out our Comedy Club page.  From late-May to June, Comedy events are replaced by “Telford Fringe Festival“, with extra performances of Edinburgh Festival Fringe Preview Shows,  see the “What’s On” page for details.  Tickets can be bought from the bar or online (for a small fee) from www.ticketstelford.com.  We have a pause from Comedy Club in August, as so many of the acts are up at Edinburgh!

Thursdays are our regular music night here, although we are now running extra gigs on the first Saturday of most months.  We also hold the longest-running Open Mic Night in Shropshire, having hosted musicians here for over 20 years.  It normally runs on the last Thursday of each month, although that will occasionally change in holiday periods.  To take part, contact crownopenmic@gmail.com (Please note the NEW e-mail address!)

On Wednesdays, we welcome acoustic musicians from 8.30p.m. to join Howard, Helen & Co. in Telford Acoustic Club in the back room.

On the last Sunday of each month, we host Oakengates’ original Pub-Quiz.  This starts at 8.30 prompt and costs £1 to take part in teams of up to 5 people.  Unlike some pubs where, if you win, you are expected to drink a gallons of beer, we give Cash Prizes.

In another exciting new venture, we have joined the ticketting service provided by Oakengates Theatre at www.ticketstelford.com  Here you can buy tickets online, not only for events at the Crown Inn but also for the Elephant & Castle, Oakengates Theatre and a range of other venues and events around The Wrekin Borough.  You can buy as many tickets as you like for as many shows as you like at as many venues as you like and only pay one £2 charge per transaction.  For most people, this will work out cheaper than our previous online supplier.  We hope you will find this to be another useful feature.

The Crown Inn is one of the three venues (along with Dawley’s Elephant & Castle and Oakengates Theatre) which takes part in Telford Fringe, an intensive period of comedy, music, and performing arts  2018’s events ran from 27th May to 15th June.  Worry not!  It’ll be back in 2019.
