Support Winky Kicks Cancer Week at The Nog!

The Barrel of Laughs comedy club a The Nog, Wincanton

The Barrel of Laughs Comedy Club has now been running for a couple of years, and we have been lucky enough to see a phenomenal amount of talent pass through these doors.

The new format of one compere and eight or nine open spots tends to mean that there is something to tickle everyone’s fancy! It also means that we’ve been able to keep the ticket prices down to a very reasonable £5.00. So when you do the maths on it, it works out at about 50p for every act you see – now that’s what I call value for money!

The next Barrel of Laughs Comedy Club will be taking place on Thursday 7th August at 8.00pm. This is a particularly special event for us as it is going to form part of the Winky Kicks Cancer Week.

This time last year Kate Freeman was undergoing chemo following the news that she had breast cancer. In October last year, the chemo over and an all-clear from the hospital, Kate wanted to do something to help others who have been or will be affected by cancer. That November Kate ran an event in her local pub and raised £3,500. This year the event will be running for an entire week and all the pubs in Wincanton are taking part!

Share a pint in the beer garden at The Nog, Wincanton

So we would love you to come and join us and enjoy a great night of comedy AND help raise funds for Cancer Research UK. We are hoping that the weather will be kind to us so that we can have the gig outside in the beer garden. We will also be doing a hog roast and a raffle with all proceeds going to this wonderful cause - so be sure to bring plenty of dosh with you!

Tickets are available in advance from the bar or on the door on the night and cost £5.00 each. We do recommend buying them in advance if you can though as we've recently had a couple of sell-out gigs!

So if you fancy joining us, follow the laughter...

For further information please give Will or Amy a call on 01963 32998.
