Last night (26th March) we were delighted to receive the ‘Community Award’ at the annual Leicester Comedy Festival Awards, in recognition of our A Bellyful of Laughs event, which took place at The Fish and the Chip Restaurant in February.
We were delighted to accept the award at the newly re-opened Haymarket Theatre, along with local comedian Anthony King. Anthony has been with us over the eight years we have run this event and not only performs himself, he also finds other performers and gives invaluable advice.
The awards night was fantastic, with the opportunity to hear from Nicholas Parsons, who was presented with the ‘Legend of Comedy’ Award.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Anthony, the other comedians who performed on the night – Graeme Collard, Dave Fensome, Jules Oliver and Phil Lucas – along with Aatin and the team at The Fish & The Chip for making the night such a success.
We would also like to thank each and everyone one of you who has supported A Bellyful of Laughs, not only in 2018 but also in previous years. You have helped to raise nearly £10,000 for local people in hardship and crisis.
We are already looking forward to A Bellyful of Laughs 2019 – we hope to see you there!
