Join Black Arts Heritage Luton & Beds for an evening of entertainment and mature comedy as four comedians open the doors to the ups and downs of relationships.
How is it long term relationships go from I love you to Why don't you stop breathing? Spoken word to marry or not to marry? That is the Black man's quandary, and music to rev up that dilapidated Libido with shared rhythmical delight. Hosted by one of the first black comedians on the BBC and with a special musical performance from an award-winning saxophonist, this is not an evening you will want to miss.
Prizes for the best dressed couple!

Luton Library Theatre
Luton Library Theatre opened in 1962 as a lecture theatre before gradually changing to a traditional entertainment venue with 256 seats and two side aisles.
The Theatre began to build up a programme of amateur and professional drama, film, music of all types and children's events. In fact a pretty long list of events that covers almost every taste!
All of this continued through the sixties, seventies and eighties. During the nineties the seating was changed to a more modern style and colour with a centre isle with a slight rake. This meant the amount of seating had to be reduced to the current capacity of 238.
In the late nineties and early noughties, there were more changes both fabric and technical makeup of the Theatre. This brings us up to 2009, when the Library itself closed for a major refurbishment. Some improvements were made to the front of house and bar areas of the theatre, plus the introduction of a new cafe.
Luton Library Theatre with it's 238 seated capacity auditorium and Bar Area. See Venue Hire for more information.
