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.’

We would like to thank Felt Nowt and The Tyne Theatre and Opera House for choosing to support women and girls”
