Along with Alfred the Great and Jeremy Corbyn, Wil is listed as the most notable resident of Chippenham. A clip of him in his local pub can be found here:

Tony Cowards has been described as a 'Pun-osaurus'. He is incapable of not delivering puns. He also knows how to keep the military in check as he is a regular compere for army comedy nights. Originally from Suffolk, but now living in Wiltshire, Tony will be the opening comedian on 29 November.

Ben Harrington is the host of a prestigious comedy night in London to which he commutes every week. A member of the Labour Party in Reading, Ben can be dark and obscene but always funny. Here is a clip of him performing in Chelmsford:

Mark Hurman is from Weston super mare and has ripped the roof off venues in the south west as he takes the public by surprise with his political and social observations.

The event will include speakers concerned with the threat to the Royal United Hospital and the Riverside NHS Walk In Centre. Anybody who is affected by this move by BANES Clinical Commissioning Group is being urged to sign a petition here
