Let’s all have
A Lovely Time!

We're a Manchester-based production company that loves putting on exceptional comedy events for audiences in search of a great night out. We also produce tours and develop utterly unique concepts such as the BBC-endorsed Adult Film Club and our quarterly Simpson’s Quiz, Down With Homework.

The Team

A Lovely Time Productions was started in 2020 by John Stansfield and Chris Cantrill, two very tired dads with a passion for comedy and years of industry experience.
