A Cambridge comedy club is coming back to Saffron Walden for the first time since the pandemic began.

Big Deal Comedy Club has resumed live gigs which started in Cambridge last month (May), and has announced it will come to Fairycroft House on October 16.

Big Deal organiser Leanne Clarke said a return to live comedy is a confidence boost for performers, new and old.

She said: "We're really excited to return to Fairycroft.

"It always brings a supportive crowd, so we're hoping everyone can return, depending on coronavirus regulations.
