Award winning weirdo Elf Lyons performs a work in progress of a brand new show. Traditional stand-up. Noclowning. No weirdness. Nothing alternative. No drag.  Absolutely none… Okay? She’s doing something relatable this time. Absolutely nothing to do with acting out her favourite horses from history.   There will be absolutely no mime, no clowning, no drag, no silliness in this WHATSOEVER.

One of The 50 Funniest Comedians of the 21st Century – The Telegraph

“Praise her genius – and go”

★★★★★The Telegraph

“This is comedy as enchantment, a show so beguiling that you don’t just love it, you somehow fall in love with it.”

★★★★The Scotsman

“Expert clowning that’s by turns charming, silly, touching and catastrophic”

★★★★The Times

“If you prefer your comedy going to the edge then toppling right off that edge try Lyons.”

★★★★Evening Standard

“Elf Lyons can’t be accused of treading the conventional career path since none of her shows ever remotely resembles the next.

She bites fiercely back… if lovable takes you so far, terrifying takes you further”

★★★★The Guardian

“Hits the stage like a tornado”

★★★★★ The Skinny


Please note The Glory is a queer venue run by queer people, for queer people and their allies. We operate a zero-tolerance policy towards homophobia, transphobia, racism, misogyny and discrimination of any kind. Be respectful or you will be asked to leave. Strictly no office, hen or stag parties allowed.


The Glory is a very old building with pre-existing accessibility issues and while we’ve strived to make the space user friendly, there is no ‘easy’ wheelchair accessibility to all areas of the venue.


The main bar is accessible, though the toilets are up a flight of 3 stairs with a handrail. Wheelchairs cannot access the toilets however. There is a local restaurant a few doors down who have an accessible toilet that they are happy for our customers to use.


To access shows in the basement there is a narrow flight of 12 stairs with a handrail.


The main bar has plenty of seats and tables. Ticketed shows are seated unless otherwise stated.
