Attend a free radio recording

The BBC has it's good points and bad points, but one of the good things for those of us who live in the nation's capital is the chance to attend free comedy and music events in exchange for the telly tax.

The programme changes with the schedules and it can be a bit hit and miss but at it's best this provides an opportunity for a great free night out and who can argue with that?

Some comedy highlights include Radio 4's The Now Show and The News Quiz, as well as standup comedy showcases from some of Britain's brightest talent.

The recordings move around town but are most frequently held at the fantastic Art-Deco styled Radio Theatre in Broadcasting House, in Portland Place. For more information visit the BBC Tickets section of their website at http://shows.external.bbc.co.uk/help/tickets/radio.

  1. The News Quiz is often in the Drill Hall, Chenies Place, just off Tottenham Court Road. The neat thing about this venue is that everybody has a quick drink or two in the bar, next to the studio, after the recordings. It's very chatty and informal, and you find yourself rubbing shoulders - literally - with the News Quiz team, who will be there nattering to their friends.
