We can guarantee a fantastic night out at the Frog and Bucket. With our cabaret style seating, friendly staff and great comics, you get the best possible atmosphere for comedy.
The venue will be set up with tables of 10 in the downstairs area or tables of 4 on the balcony.

On the Night

The night will be introduced by one of our world-class comperes and features two headline comedians with one short interval. After the show, you can dance the night away with our classic disco!

Our doors will open at 7pm for our evening shows and if you opted for the Christmas meal we ask that you are in the venue by 7.15pm. Anyone not eating with us is welcome to join us for drinks at 7pm; otherwise we request that you are in the venue by 8pm for an 8:30pm show start.

Lunchtime Show

We also hold a lunchtime show over Christmas. Doors will open at 12.30pm and the meal will be served from 1pm. We request that anyone having the meal is in the venue as close to that time as possible.
The show will begin at approximately 2pm and continue until 4pm with 1 beer break in between. The bar will be open until 5.30pm


Due to the popularity of our Christmas and New Year shows we get fully booked some months in advance. So, if you’re planning on coming along to one of our shows, we suggest you book early to avoid disappointment.

New Year at the Frog and Bucket

We don’t just do a great Christmas at the Frog we also do the best New Year’s Eve party in the North West and this is a reputation we take very seriously!

30th December – NOT New Year’s Eve

Can’t get a babysitter for New Year’s Eve? Fear not because we at The Frog bring you NOT New Year’s Eve. This is the Frog’s very own pretend New Year’s Eve held on the 30th of December every year. The evening will have exactly the same frivolities as the “real” New Year’s Eve, including the 3 course traditional meal, just a day earlier!

31st December – New Year’s Eve

Three top of the line headline acts and one of our fantastic frog comperes guarantees us repairing the roof on the 1st of January!
