TICKETS are now on sale for a village’s annual feast of top comedy.
Thorner Comedy Festival will take place from February 24-25 with its reputation bolstered by previous headliners such as Michael McIntyre, Alan Carr, Shappi Khorsandi, Russell Kane, Marcus Brigstocke, Russell Howard, all of whom have gone on to become TV comedy stars.
The money raised will go towards an important phase of building work to improve access to the village’s award-winning Victory Hall.
Festival organiser Alex Foster said: “Last year all 600 tickets sold in two weeks, and we’re expecting demand to be just as brisk this year, though we’ll not be able to announce this year’s line up for a few weeks yet.”
The hall’s facilities con tinue to be improved each year, helped by the succcess of the annual comedy extravaganza.
Victory Hall committee member John Calvert said “We have much improved facilities at the hall, and a full programme of regular weekly activities, but we’ve tried to find out what other things people would like to see.
“As a result we’re offering a taster course in Tai Chi and a series of all age all ability Sunday afternoon singing workshops – we really do want to find something to meet all tastes!”
