LAUGH ALLOTMENT

Comedy Fundraiser for the Elm Village Urban Growth Programme

Tuesday 22nd October. 

Time: 8:00pm (Doors open 7:30pm)

Tickets: Pay What You Want/Generous Donations

Urban Growth is a practical and therapeutic work-based recovery programme based in Camden Town and run by the charity, “Jobs in Mind” (St James’s House). Sadly, its site was vandalised in September, leaving plants and structures destroyed. “Laugh Allotment” hopes to raise money to help cover costs of the damage, as well as raise awareness of this fantastic charity and programme. Entry is free, but please give generously on the night for this important cause.

WEIRDOS FUNDRAISER

An amazing show to raise funds for our final Christmas Pantomime in December.

✮ ✯ John Kearns ✮ ✯
✮ ✯ Lou Sanders ✮ ✯
✮ ✯ Sam Simmons ✮ ✯
✮ ✯ Patrick Cahill ✮ ✯
✮ ✯ A greatest hits set from the Weirdos gang.✮ ✯

Why are you raising funds? What does my money do?
Every year we put on a big show for charity. Over the last 2 years we have raised £8,000 for Great Ormond Street. Its a very expensive show and so that all the money can go to charity we need to try and cover some of the production costs – paint / props / costumes – John Kearn’s rider etc.

In association with Laugh Out London and Heroes of Fringe
