Stand-Up For Human Rights Night at Matthews Hall on Friday 26 October
Carrying on Amnesty International's great tradition of the Secret Policeman's Ball, Award winning comedianne Rosie Wilby will headline a comedy night in aid of Exeter's branch of Amnesty International at Matthew's Hall in Topsham on Friday 26 October.
Wilby tops an bill of all female acts with Julie Jepson and duo O'Shea & Ogilvie in tow. Hot off a well received stint at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with her show, 'How not to make it in Britpop', Rosie Wilby is known for weaving jokes in with interactive elements and music for a show that's sure to keep everyone in stiches. Brighton native Julie Jepson is currently touring her 'Personal Triumph' show and is know for comedy that is thought provoking and personable. And you might recognise O'Shea & Ogilvie from this year's Ignigte Festival or from a recent stint at the Cygnet Theatre where they brought their special brand of sketch comedy to our fair city. Looks like a wicked line up so I think thinks people of Topsham are in for a treat!
The night wouldn't be complete of course without a raffle & great prizes to be won, a few rounds of "Irish" bingo, and a licensed bar .Tickets £10 are available at the Topsham Bookshop on Topsham High Street, or alternatively via firstname.lastname@example.org. The venue, Matthew's Hall, Fore Street, Topsham, holds an audience of 170 seated around tables of 8 (cabaret style) and the fun starts at 7.30.
