Please note if any member is want to take part please call or email Steve Ashcroft, or message us on this page today. We really do need to know how many members are planning to take part and whether you will be performing children’s, or general comedy/magic. So that we can plan a successful evening and invite an audience.
Mark Thorold asked if anyone knowes the member that had a homemade disembodied head on a chair at the club a long time ago. If it’s you or you can remember who had it please let Mark know or message us on this site.

All the competitors agreed to have their performance put on video and we hope to have some clips on the members only facebook page ASAP. Thanks to everyone who took part or helped in any way.
