The club also hosts a literary event with Helen Lederer and her new comedy book ‘Losing It’

The Ring O Bells in Widcombe plays host to three solo shows per evening during the week, including Edinburgh previews and works in progress from seasoned performers alongside up-and-coming stars of the future including the likes of Mick Ferry, Diane Spencer, Pierre Hollins, Matt Green, Bec Hill and Gary Colman.
