Stand up for Labour - Chingford, 7 December (earlybird tickets)
A fantastic line up featuring Arthur Smith, Ava Vidal and Attila the Stockbroker
Stand up for Labour holds its first event for Chingford & Woodford Green Labour Party at the Bojangles Brasserie (1 Old Church Road, Chingford, London E4 6SJ) featuring three fantastic performers raising funds for the #UnseatIDS campaign.
Arthur Smith is known as a ‘Grumpy Old Man’ but he has brought joy to many Labour supporters in the past five years, including at the first ever Stand up for Labour in July 2012. Comedy legend Arthur has appeared on every TV show you can think of and is also an accomplished writer and playwright.
Ava Vidal is a familiar face on most topical current affairs programmes (Newsnight, This Week, Daybreak and ITN News). As a comedian, she has appeared on Mock the Week and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow.
Attila the Stockbroker was launched into public consciousness by Radio One DJ John Peel in 1982/83, and he has spent 35 years touring the world, performing well over 3,000 gigs in 24 countries and releasing 40 LPs/EPs/CDs and seven books of poetry.
The night is hosted by Crispin Flintoff, who set up Stand up for Labour in 2012 and has organised over 200 events for Labour Party CLPs across England, Scotland and Wales. Crispin was also a former runner up in the prestigious Hackney Empire New Acts of the Year competition and is standing as a candidate in this year's council election in Kensington and Chelsea.
The night will also include liquid prizes and a raffle. Guest speaker is to be announced shortly!
Tickets cost £10 if bought before 17 November/£12 in advance and £15 on the door.
