August’s Comeback Cabaret events which had to be postponed at short notice have now been rescheduled into September.

Comeback Cabaret is a series of eclectic Saturday evenings of socially-distanced entertainment presented in the historic Art Deco Royal Hall.

Featuring in September’s line up are Asa Elliott best known for his role in ITV’s Benidorm with an evening of ’60s and swing. He is on September 5.

Ricky K brings an evening of stand-up comedy and a tribute to Robbie Williams on the September 12 and Chris Johnson performs an evening of classic country hits featuring songs from artists such as Kenny Rogers, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard on September 19.

Glen Leon completes the line-up for September’s cabaret nights with a tribute to Tom Jones on September 26.

Also, legendary family-friendly comedian Jimmy Cricket is back on Sunday September 27 with his trademark wellington boots (on the wrong feet), his famous letters from his Mammy and his catchphrases of 'come closer' and 'there's more', he holds the hearts of all those that were original fans of his television and radio shows.

Jimmy has lost none of his talent or energy and his theatre shows are as hilarious as ever, winning him new fans wherever he performs. Jimmy remains one of the few completely family-friendly comedians’ currently on tour and has great pride in being regaled as having a truly clean act.

Bridlington Spa has also added a Picturehouse screening on Saturday afternoons showing films suitable for the whole family and will kick start the screenings on September 5 with the first instalment of the blockbuster Marvel Avengers films.

Bridlington Spa General Manager Mark Lonsdale says “Our first Comeback Cabaret event on Saturday August 29 proved to be hugely popular with our audience and showed that the appetite is out there for the return of live entertainment in a Covid-secure way. We have programmed additional cabaret evenings into our plans for September and beyond.

As the premier entertainment venue on the Yorkshire coast, I’m delighted we are able to see the return of live indoor performances, providing entertainment to local residents and holidaymakers alike and to support the local economy.”

Tickets for all the above events are available to purchase online at or via the box office 01262 678258
