Doors 7:30pm / Show 8pm
A gala of the great women comedians in the North East is to take place at the iconic Tyne Theatre and Opera House to mark International Women’s Day. The show takes place in aid of Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland with all money going to the charity. An awesome line-up has been assembled, with the show shining a light on women and the incredible talent we have in the region.
All comedians are donating their time for free to this incredible cause and the range of comedic viewpoints on show will ensure a raucous night out for all those in attendance on 8th March.
Tickets are £10 for the show which starts at 8pm and are on sale from Wednesday 8th December at 10am.
This rare gala show is a massive event for the North East’s cultural calendar, with this showcase of the rambunctious women North East comedy regularly produces sure to be a night to remember.
With the comedic line-up curated by local comedy Community Interest Company Felt Nowt, there’s a real assurance of strong comedy credentials in aid of an important cause. Comedian and Felt Nowt Director Lauren Pattison says ‘The North East is bursting with fantastic female talent, some of which have given their time in aid of Rape Crisis. The work they do is invaluable and Felt Nowt are delighted to be able to help support such a worthy cause. It’s set to be a brilliant evening of laughter, all while raising money to help the team at Rape Crisis continue to offer the crucial services to women and girls in our area who need them during unimaginably difficult times.’
Theatre Director, Joanne Johnson said “Supporting local comedy talent is an important part of our ethos; it is an honour for the Tyne Theatre and Opera House to host this event which will bring together some of the finest acts the region has to offer in aid of Rape Crisis, a vital organisation whose work is invaluable for the Northeast. We look forward to yet another evening of laughter in the calendar for 2022!”
