The ticket is £6.99 which includes entry to the signing and a copy of The Whale Watchers. 

Friday night comedy at The Grey Horse

Welcome to the home of Kingston's original and longest running comedy night. 

A night of irresistible improv comedy from some of London's finest players. Kickstart the weekend with a razor-sharp, spontaneous, brand new and never-to-be-seen-again show that will leave you saying, like after ALL the best nights out, "you really had to be there…"

You'll be asked for suggestions which will be turned into unforgettable scenes, characters, and songs, all made up right there on the spot. Had a particularly eventful night out recently? They might just ask you about it… 

5th August - Sally-Anne Hayward, Ridwan Husain, Greg Houston, Ben van der Velde and Phil Dinsdale as MC.

Example album release show at Pryzm

To celebrate the release of his new album 'We May Grow Old But We Never Grow Up', Example visits Kingston to play at Pryzm.

On the brink of releasing his eighth album, Example is beginning a new chapter. Having spent well over a decade in the game, the UK mainstay has crafted a career drenched in accolades: Platinum albums, chart-topping singles, headline festivals slots, and a lengthy stint releasing inescapable anthems that bridge the gap between electronic, rap and pop.

Still, Example isn't ready to hang up his boots just yet; rather, he's preparing for the most important release of his career.

8pm doors.

8.45 Example.
