Comedy returns to The Charmandean on Thursday 15th August 2024.

With a bunch of fantastic comedians from across the circuit, don’t miss out on a night of side-splitting laughs and start your Friday feeling early.

It’s absolutely fantastic. It’s the best laugh I’ve had in a long time. Make sure you come to the next one!

A great charity. I hope they do loads more comedy nights – it’s been great!

Not only will you enjoy great comedy, but you will also be improving the lives of patients and staff in your local NHS hospitals. All profits from the event will support our work.

So, what are you waiting for? Book your tickets now.
