1 Week to go - A Celebration of British Comedy Songs

BBC Radio Leicester and the Charity group Applause bring together a number of well known Leicestershire public figures, local sporting celebrities and some of the best local choirs for a charity evening to celebrate the best of British Comedy songs from stage, screen and the pop charts.

Solo performers include former Leicester Tigers and England rugby player George Chuter, Leicestershire's Chief Constable, BBC Radio Leicester presenters and the Lord Lieutenant of Leicestershire.

Applause Chairman and BBC Radio Leicester presenter Dave Andrews says “This will be an opportunity to hear some of the best known public figures in Leicestershire as you’ve never heard them before”

“This is the second year at the Comedy Festival for this concert and last year’s was a major success.”

“Come along and enjoy an evening of music and comedy like no other.”

The show will feature a variety of music from a Benny Hill Christmas number one to a Monty Python classic.

Proceeds from the evening will support the Joe Humphries Memorial Trust (JHMT) and the charity's patron, Tigers, England and British Lions legend Martin Johnson CBE is backing the event:

The England Rugby World Cup winner says 'This should be a fun evening to help a campaign which has the potential to save the lives of many young people and I'm proud to support it. Cardiac arrest, in particular Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), in the young is something that every parent needs to be aware of”

The concert takes place on Saturday 7th February 2015 at 7.30pm. St James the Greater Church, 216 London Road, Leicester, LE2 1NE .

Tickets are £10 (£8 concessions) and are available online at www.comedy-festival.co.uk or call 0116 242 3595
