The Crown on Hatfield Road held their annual charity comedy night to raise money and donations for St Albans and District Foodbank.

As well as mounds of food, the pub managed to raise an additional £69.15 for the foodbank.

The pub hosts an open mic comedy night once a week, run by Lee Wilson and Phil Hawksworth. They have been organising comedy at The Crown for the past three years, with more than 300 different acts step up to the microphone.

Phil and Lee handpicked 11 of their favourite acts to perform on the charity night.
