London’s Alexandra Palace will host an Autumn season of events this October and November under called Live at Ally Pally.
The opening show on Thursday 15 October will be headlined by Al Murray and his alter ego The Pub Landlord. Subsequent nights will feature the likes of Phil Wang, Adam Hills, Dara O’Briain, Rich Hall, Russell Kane, Nathan Caton, Suzi Ruffell, Rosie Jones and Angela Barnes performing quick fire sets of brand-new material and the best of their current repertoire.
Louise Stewart, Chief Executive of Alexandra Palace says: “Like many organisations across the country we have faced and continue to face some incredibly difficult times. However, in the true spirit of Ally Pally our lights have remained switched on throughout this period of uncertainty.
“After safely and successfully hosting over seventeen thousand people at one of London’s biggest beer gardens over the summer, Live at Ally Pally feels like the next logical step going into the Autumn. We’re thrilled to be able to welcome audiences back into our building next month for some of the best in live entertainment.”
Live at Ally Pally will feature live sets from influential DJ Sasha (30 October). Also joining the line-up are The Comet Is Coming who will bring their unique fusion of jazz, Afrofuturism, electronica and psychedelia to the Palace on 18 November.
The season will also include performances of award-winning theatre company Sh!t-faced Shakespeare’s unique take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream (25 October), and one of the UK’s best alternative club nights, Rebel Bingo (31 October).
To ensure the safety and comfort of patrons, covid-19 secure protocols have been implemented which follow strict hygiene protocols and allows for social distancing, with all events finishing at 10pm.
The Palace’s West Hall has been transformed to allow audiences to be seated at socially distanced tables, maximum 6 guests per table with on-table ordering and payment via an app. Table service will be provided, serving up food and drinks from a variety of pop-up street food vendors and bars offering cocktails and craft beers.
