NCF £1 Comedy Night at Canalhouse, Nottingham
Comedy in The Midlands is now becoming a regular outing for us here at Artisan Traveller. Having experienced the professional scene at both The Leicester Comedy Festival and Funhouse at Bartons PLC, we decided to see what £1 gets you on a Wednesday night.
Funhouse Comedy at Bartons PLC
It’s safe to say that we are fully immersed into the UK comedy scene. The intimate gigs in the bars and pubs that hosted The Leicester Comedy Festival have given a whole new perspective on watching stand up comedy.

Fischmarkt, Hamburg

Fischmarkt Hamburg
Never in my life have I set an alarm for 6.30am to attend a market. Nor have I ever set an alarm for 6.30am to attend a live music gig. Incredibly, on a Sunday of all days, this is a common theme across Hamburg.

The Red Cow, Leicester Forest East

Hyde Park Winter Wonderland, London
There are Christmas markets and there are Christmas markets. This is the latter. A huge set-up of Bavarian beer houses and fairground rides complete with an ice rink, ice bar and even a Nordic tipi tent. Welcome to Hyde Park Winter Wonderland in the heart of London, quite possibly...
