Mr Drayton's Dinner Date Returns To The Stand
Food lovers, comedy fans, and special guests chew the fat with BBC Newcastle's Mr Drayton
No sooner were you back onto your original belt notches from his last evening, does BBC Radio Newcastle’s Steve Drayton return to The Stand for another medley of laughs and lunch.
Joined by a surprise selection of special guests (“surprise” as in, they haven’t announced them yet), the audience sits down with the legendary regional disc jock to chew the fat over a special Bistro menu laid on by the venue. Comedy Dine With Me, if you will.
Following the success of Mr Drayton’s Record Player evenings, where he invites you in the hear an individual album entirely as the artist intended it to be heard, the foodie format’s been praised for creating an intimate and unique afternoon’s experience. Of course, if you’ve already got you’re lunch planned for the Saturday, you’re welcome to take a normal seat away from the banquet and gorge yourself on the lols instead.
