Located in the centre of Rye, East Sussex, the hotel was recently renovated to create one of the most stunning hideaways on the south coast. The building dates from 1575 and has enviable heritage; it even has an original Georgian ballroom used for lavish weddings and banquets. An eclectic and contemporary design has been given to this historic fabric using a wide range of antique and modern furniture, materials and local art. The result is a comfortable blend of old and new, creating an atmosphere which is relaxed, informal and individual.

Andre Vincent - Headliner
Andre Vincent started his comedy life in the US, his apprenticeship in Georgia and Alabama was good enough in the eyes of his peers to get gigs in other states of the U.S. and the pinnacle of this work was opening for Bob Hope in Columbus, Ohio in 1992.
With his head swelling and his tongue tripping one-liners, he returned home to conquer the comedy circuit of the U.K., and in no time at all established himself as one of the top stand-ups in the country today.
‘He possesses the energy of Lee Evans with the improvisational Skills of Paul Merton and is one of the best comedians in the business’ – The Times
Karen Bayley - Support
The first ever female winner of the prestigious Comedy Store King Gong award, Karen was also a BBC New Comedy Awards Showcase final and Babycham Funny Women finalist, all when launching onto the UK comedy circuit in 2003. Brummie Karen has quickly picked up a whole host of rave reviews, comedy awards and references from her peers. Her material surprises with inspired and sparkling punchlines, with comic timing that is rarely less than brilliant. Already a rising star on TV and radio, she has appeared on The Last Word, Take The Mike, Sex on the Job, The Fred Macauley Show and a regular on Radio 5 Live.
“Bayley’s material surprises with inspired and sparkling punchlines…with comic timing that is rarely less than brilliant. An assured performer who doesn’t have trouble getting audiences laughing.” Chortle UK
Andy Stedman - Compere
During his mildly successful music career it is unlikely that Andy’s voice literally melted hearts, but his witty between-song chat was always a big part of his shows and often stoked as much (if not more) interest than the tunes themselves! Fast-forward to now, a few years and a bet with a comedy promoter friend later, and it’s the songs that are tactically placed between the chat and the storytelling, not the other way around.
2015 saw Andy perform over 100 comedy gigs in his memorably cheeky, likeable manner. His first ever stint at Edinburgh Fringe saw him perform the whole month, MCing at Big Silly Comedy’s Midnight Mash-Up and performing guest slots on shows such as Laughing Horse Pick Of The Fringe, Shaggers, and Relatively Normal.
Outside of the Fringe Andy has played gigs for Backyard, Mirth, Cheeky Monkey, Comedy Club, Crack Comedy, Open Comedy, Funhouse, Monkey Business, Big Silly and more.
“He connected well with the audience and wrote two love songs for a couple there who had been dating for one week. Very, very funny comic.” – Martin Mullaney, Comedy, Cheeky Monkey Comedy Club
