The Secret Life of a Sleepless Anaesthetist
Start time: 8pm | White Rock Studio

NHS anaesthetist, comedian and author (oooooh check him) Ed Patrick injects Hastings with a gut-punch hilarious show about becoming a junior doctor, the NHS, the pitfalls of modern medicine and the power of questioning it.

There’s plenty of laughing gas to go round.
