All for a good cause

Thorner Comedy Festival

A comedy festival in a village hall on the outskirts of Leeds? That has hosted the likes of Michael McIntyre, Catherine Ryan, Aisling Bea, James Acaster, Nish Kumar and Alan Carr? And less than 600 tickets available? It can't be possible—can it?

In the depths of winter a judge, a farmer, a bike shop owner, a retired cameraman, myself and a couple of others get together to meticulously plan the upcoming festival. Every February this village plays host to some of the biggest names on the comedy scene, and all for good causes. Tickets are in high demand and this year we sold out in nine minutes.

So far we have raised over £250,000 for charities here and in Africa, helping to provide shelter, accommodation and support for school children of the Great Sacred Heart School in Kenya as well as a new roof and heating for the local village hall.
