Jason Manford, Bill Bailey, Daniel Sloss, Dom Joly, Rachel Parris, Adam Kay, Jonathan Pie, Omid Djalili, Daniel Sloss, Luisa Omielan are among the acts set to play the biggest drive-in comedy shos yet in the UK

The Drive-In Club is the first and biggest multi-screen, multi-genre, outside entertainment experience in the country so far. In line with government guidelines, ticket holders will be able to either sit inside or adjacent to their car with sound broadcast through a dedicated FM frequency. This entirely contact-free, live programmed event, is a safe space to enjoy entertainment whilst adhering to social distancing government practices.  

First launching in Brent Cross from 3rd July & Dagenham from 9th July (with more locations to be announced), the venues will host everything from live comedy, music, podcasts, Q&A’s & family shows to the latest blockbuster films throughout the day and into the night.  The specially curated content is designed to appeal to a variety of ages and interests and is set to bring people together in a controlled but fun environment. Food & beverage deliveries can be ordered online on the day and delivered direct to your car from a selection of traders.

The Drive-In Club will importantly recognise the relentless hard work of our NHS heroes by giving 5% of all the tickets free of charge to their hard working staff. This will allow them to spend much-needed quality time with their loved ones. In addition the Drive-In Club will help the live entertainment industry that has been hit hard, to get back on track via this unique concept. 

Drive-ins have already been a huge success in Germany and other parts of Europe. The venues will have carefully managed capacities and dedicated professional health & safety advisors, to ensure government regulations are implemented. Ultimately, The Drive-In Club provides an opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of cultural content in a safe environment for customers, talent and event staff. 

The Drive-In Club will also have a donate option for up to £5 per purchase with funds going to local causes and charities.
