Review: Jasper Carrott’s ‘Stand Up and Rock!’
Dudley Town Hall April 2017


Review by Zyllah Moranne-Brown

And so to a hidden little gem of a venue in the heart of the Black Country, to see a legendary local comedian with friend and legendary musician in tow, with a bunch of friends. What more could you want on a Friday night, as we pop along to Dudley Town Hall, to catch up with Jasper Carrott, Bev Bevan and friends and to Stand Up and Rock.


Dudley Town Hall. Right in the centre of Dudley Town Centre. Built in 1928 at a time when civic building were built with civic pride, the wooden doors, leaded windows and cornice plaster-work in the valued hall only made me wonder, in all the years of going to gigs across the Midlands and beyond, why this was the first time I’ve ever been here. Halls across the borough have historically been community events, but now – reinvigorated, there is a chance that this little gem could rise and become one of the venues across the West Midlands. The box office and front of house staff as helpful and friendly as the Symphony Hall, we take to our seats, alongside 900 others.
