Stand up for Labour - Bolton West - Friday 26 January
A fantastic line up featuring comedy, poetry, magic and liquid prizes
Stand up for Labour returns to Horwich RMI (Ramsbottom Road, Horwich BL6 5NH) in a fundraiser for key marginal seat Bolton West, which is selecting its parliamentary candidate the next day.
The night is sponsored by the BFAWU (Bakers Food & Allied Workers Union) and features a fantastic mix of comedy, stories, poetry, magic and all-round entertainment. With some added political flavour and liquid prizes.
Performers on the night include:
Kevin Dewsbury, award-winning stand-up comedian, actor and recent Panto Dame who has gone down a storm at Stand up for Labour events in Blackpool and Doncaster.
Kate Fox, an hilarious stand-up poet who has been compared with the late Victoria Wood for her skillful use of rhyme. Kate regularly appears on Radio 4 and was a bit hit with the audience at Stand up for Labour's event in Saltburn-by-the-Sea.
Ian Saville, the only Socialist Magician in the Magic Circle. Ian has been performing political fundraisers for over 30 years and combines magic with comedy and ventriloquism. Expect the unexpected!
Guest speaker on the night is Ian Hodson, President of the BFAWU, which has been instrumental in securing better pay for McDonalds workers.
The night is hosted by Crispin Flintoff, who set up Stand up for Labour in 2012 as a means of entertaining Labour Party supporters and raising money for local constituency parties. In over five years, Crispin has organised over 200 events and raised over £150,000 in the process.
