Christmas Radio Show Specials for 2021. Ticket information.

Count Arthur Strong will be recording two more Christmas Specials of his radio sitcom very soon. 

Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show! first aired on BBC Radio 4 in 2005 and ran for seven series until 2012 when the former variety star transferred to BBC TV in his eponymous sitcom which was nominated for a BAFTA and was voted 4th best sitcom of the 21st Century in the Radio Times. In 2019 the show was voted 3rd Most Missed TV Show Of The 21st Century in the Radio Times poll (and many thanks to all of you who voted). 

In recent years Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show has continued with seasonal specials, many of which have been broadcast on Christmas Day. Having won the Sony Award for Best Radio comedy in 2009, the series was a record three times voted the Best Radio Sitcom by The British Comedy Guide and named one of the 20 funniest radio comedies of all time in The Telegraph. 

This year we are recording two Christmas Specials of Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show!, one of which will be for broadcast this year. We will be recording these on Sunday 14th November 2021 at The Barnfield Theatre in Exeter. It’s going to be a great night with the Radio Show regulars. We will start at 7:15PM. Tickets are £10 + VAT each (plus a booking and transaction fee) and will be available from 10AM on Thursday 14th October by clicking here or going to 

Please note that you will not be able to get tickets direct from the venue box office or from any other online ticketing site. Last year they sold out in a matter of seconds so don’t leave it too late. Good luck and hope to see you there.
