News from the South Holland Centre

We could all do with a few laughs from time to time! We know this to be true from the full-houses attracted in 2014 for Omid Djalili, Russell Kane and Miles Jupp.

Last weekend, little firecracker Susan Calman filled the main auditorium with roars of laughter and there are more high profile names still to come.

In next week’s column, we hope to bring you some wise words from Chris Ramsey about his upcoming show ‘The Most Dangerous Man on Saturday Morning TV’ which he brings to the South Holland Centre on Thursday, November 13.

But if you can’t wait until then, you can catch Chris on the telly this Thursday night when he appears as a guest on ITV2’s Celebrity Juice Halloween special.

Tickets for his Spalding show are selling well but there is availability for anyone sitting on the fence.

Two more big comedy names booked to appear at the South Holland Centre include the ‘maestro of feel-good comedy’ Stephen K Amos in February, and a rather dapper ‘Suited and Booted’ Lee Nelson in May! If previous form is anything to go by these events will sell out, so early booking is recommended.

But back to 2014 and this Friday sees the return of our regular comedy club, Funhouse Comedy, in the Centre’s top floor hall and bar.

Joe Lycett tops the bill – he’s been on loads of TV shows including Celebrity Juice, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, 8 out of 10 Cats and as the announcer on Saturday BBC One show Epic Win.

Support comes from Northern Ireland’s Martin Mór and funny magician Mandy Muden. Canny advance bookers pay the discounted £10 ticket price, otherwise it’s £12.50 on the door.
