Save the Frog and Bucket Comedy Club

The Frog and Bucket asked Arts Council England for £60,000 from a £257,000,000 cultural recovery fund but were denied as they didn't consider us culturally significant and/or contributing to providing cultural opportunity in England.

The Frog was established in 1994 and is the longest running comedy club out of London, it discovered the nations favourite comics such as Peter Kay, John Bishop, Johnny Vegas and was the launch pad of so many more including Jack Whitehall,  Lucy Porter, Issy Suttie, Jason Manford, Alan Carr, Ross Noble, Dave Gorman, Luisa Omielan and so many more.

The Frog prides itself on discovering and nurturing talent week in, week out for 26 years and have particularly championed Women in Comedy with an annual festival. 

We believe we are essential to the Live Comedy Circuit and Manchester's cultural offering and now need to crowdfund in the short term to stay open on reduced capacity and keep comics in work and audiences laughing

The beneficiary of the funds will be Northern Inns Ltd T/AS The Frog and Bucket Comedy Club, 102 Oldham St, Manchester M4 1LJ
