The brewing artisans at Stella Artois have crafted a brand new special edition beer: Stella Artois Black.

To celebrate, they are launching with a series of ten immersive theatre productions named The Night Chauffeur which will be held at the venues and dates listed below.

The Night Chauffeur is a moment of cinema come-to-life and every customer buying the new Stella Artois Black will be plunged into the mysterious and intriguing world of the Night Chauffeur – filled with femme fatales, secret exchanges and unanswered questions.

To get your hands on an invite, just buy Stella Artois Black, which will then give you the opportunity to apply for tickets. Those receiving two tickets to The Night Chauffeur will be collected by a mysterious driver, who will lead them on an adventure through the streets of London after dark. He takes you on a trip through the streets of the city, but also through time, back to the 1960s.

Along the way they will be thrust into an intense narrative, dramatic tales of heist fugitives, fleeting romance and everlasting love, with one of the countryʼs leading theatre troupes creating a thrilling experience for both passengers and performers alike.

He takes you on a trip through the streets of the city, but also through time, back to the 1960s. Surrounded by actors, passengers become key players in the story unfolding around them, for an unforgettable experience.

COMPETITION: Win Tickets to a Top London Comedy Night by wearesme

Last month we told you about Red In The Face – a top comedy night in London.

This month, Red In The Face will be held at Punk in Soho on Tuesday 13th July .

They have a great line up, featuring David Whitney as MC and sets from Moonfish Rhumba, Marc Burrows, Christian Steel and the horribly funny Danielle Ward, who you may well have seen on top TV shows such as ‘Mock The Week’! They also have a fantastic comedy quiz to round off the night as Robin and Partridge present ‘For The Win’.

For the last event SME had two tickets up for grabs and our lucky winner was very pleased with their win and thoroughly enjoyed the night.

This time round, we yet again have two free tickets to give away! Boom!


Send us your best joke to wearesmeblog@googlemail.com or just comment on this post, below.

The one that makes us giggle the most and makes a little bit of wee come out shall be declared the winner.

It really couldn’t be any easier. The competition will close on Sunday, 11th July, so get your jokes in quick.

If you are not the chosen winner then fear not, because you can still get tickets from Ticket Arena and at £5 a pop, we think its an absolute bargain!

In the meantime, for more information and photos check out their website.


SME Reload: Red In The Face

Red In The Face by wearesme

On Tuesday evening SME attended one of London’s freshest nights of comedy, Red In The Face, at Punk in Soho. Only their third event so far and it was completely sold out, even a majority of the cast from Holby City made it along. But, this came as no surprise once the comedians hit the stage because they were all completely hilarious.

With an aim to showcase the UK’s newest comedy talent, they did not disappoint. Each comedian was different in their own rights; from a musician-come-comedian, to an American adjusting to life in the UK. And a trio of sketch comedians, to a ranting fuzzy-haired Essex chap with a hate for hoodies.

There were too many funny moments to mention but one particular line that sticks out is, when talking about Nick Griffin one of the comedians barked; “Never before has a man looked so much like a smell”. Genius.

We highly recommend that you get down a Red In The Face comedy night as soon as you can because the tickets sell out pretty damn fast!

Luckily for you, we have managed to get our grubby little mitts on a pair of tickets for the next night at Vibe Bar, Brick Lane on Tuesday 22 June. If you want them for yourself then all you have to do is enter our competition:

Tell us your favourite joke and the one that tickles us the most will be declared the winner. Simples.
