We will be asking for donations to help pay acts for reservations. Recommended £8 donation per seat booked but whatever you can manage.
This is an outdoor gig at The Horse and Groom Pub, Wivenhoe starting 6.30pm (doors 5.30pm), there is limited seating available. Please book tables in advance.
We will be requesting donations for table reservations in order to help us pay our professional acts. This would be preferable via BACs in advance but we will collect donations on the night too.
The Funny Farm would recommend bringing the following: warm clothes (it may still get cold), mozzie repellent & waterproof (just in case!)
This will be a cracking comedy line-up with pro comics and the Funny Farm needs the audience’s help in covering the costs.
I’ve been asked by the pub staff to remind people it’s polite to return empty glasses to the bar or the empties tray outside. There – I’ve done it x
