Crazy Coqs, Soho's unique live entertainment venue within the Brasserie Zédel complex, announces a new limited August programme and a full September programme, offering both live shows and live-streamed shows.

Janie Dee, Maria Friedman, Lauren Samuels, Sophie Evans, Cedric Neal, Nerina Pallot and Jay Rayner all feature in the new season.

The live shows will be performed to a reduced capacity with a socially distanced seating plan, where the front row is at least 2.5m from the stage, and all table groupings are at least 1m apart. There will be a maximum of three performers on stage to maintain social distancing. Customers will be invited to purchase tables, rather than individual tickets, to comply with the 'reduced social bubble' government advice.

For more information on what Health and Safety measures Crazy Coqs are implementing to make your visit as safe as possible, please visit the Brasserie Zedel website.

Several live shows will also be live streamed in partnership with Fane Online, giving audiences the chance to watch broadcast quality Crazy Coqs shows from the comfort of their own home.

The full programme can be found at Crazy Coqs' new website:

Subject to government guidelines, the programme from October onwards will be announced in due course.
