Make your mark in the ultimate battle – who will win the coveted ARTMaster trophy?

Share this show…




Your town needs YOU! 

Calling all innovators, trail blazers, fun seekers and comedy lovers. This is YOUR chance to prove you’ve got what it takes, or simply laugh along as others get stuck in!

Can you think outside the box when up against the clock? Can you and your friends make the best sculpture out of mashed potato? Or paint a cracking portrait while walking a tightrope? 

Or do you enjoy laughing at others taking part in adrenalin-fuelled challenges?

Alex Horne (of Taskmaster fame, Channel 4) hosts a LIVE, interactive and arty, challenge-based show with a Taskmaster twist.

Alex is joined by team captains Fiona Allen (Smack the Pony, Goodness Gracious Me, EastEnders) and Ninia Benjamin (3 Non-Blondes, BBC Three), as well as Ben Rufus Green (The Cockfields, Gold, Alan Partridge), Stevyn Colgan (QI, Grayson Perry’s Art Club), plus more familiar faces to be announced soon

Make your mark in the ultimate battle – who will win the coveted ARTMaster trophy?  Official, signed Taskmaster prizes are also up for grabs. 


The front two rows (A and B) may get splashed with water-based paint. Waterproof ponchos will be provided, free of charge, to those who wish to wear them. 

Please note: this production will be recorded.

£1 from every ticket sold will be shared between the two team captains’ nominated charities – Fiona Allen has chosen The British Heart Foundation  and Ninia Benjamin has chosen Theatre Shed

Audience pre-show challenge

Bagged tickets for ARTMaster at The Elgiva? Then read on…

Hello there, dear ARTMaster audience! Alex Horne has a special challenge for ticketholders to complete over the next couple of weeks. Here’s his message for you:

“ARTMaster LIVE! is almost here, tickets are sold out and I am very much looking forward to seeing you, at The Elgiva, on the 14th July 2022. At this stage, only one thing can improve the night. Your din-dins. That’s right, between now and then, I want YOU to ART your dinner. Make it beguilingly beautiful, sinisterly sublime, munchingly mind-bending, whatever, I’m not fussy. Make your dinner into art, take a picture and send it our way. (Contact details below). If your ‘dinner art’ is selected, you could win points for your team. AND there might even be a prize up for grabs…”

You have until midnight on Sunday 3rd July to photograph your ‘dinner art’ and submit it, either by: – uploading to Insta or Twitter and tagging @ARTMasterLive – or by emailing your photo to contact@artmasterlive.com.

We can’t wait to see what you come up with. See you on the 14th July!
From Alex & the ARTMaster Production Team.
