Stand Up For Single Parents’ Day!

Join us on Single Parents’ Day 2021 as we celebrate single parents through some smashing stand-up comedy.

This is the third in a popular series of stand-up nights, Stand Up For Single Parents – the first two were absolutely hilarious and we’re thrilled to announce that the third will be taking place on Single Parents’ Day 2021, with all proceeds going to Gingerbread!

Thea Jaffe volunteers as a Gingerbread peer support group coordinator, is single mother to her young son, works a busy job – and, over lockdown, has really started to shine in her stand-up career! Thea organises these great evenings as a bit of a (not-necessarily-family-friendly!) laugh for all and sundry, with a selection of different comedians on throughout the evening.

Pay what you can for your ticket – with huge thanks from Gingerbread.

We’ll see you at 9pm on Sunday 21st March!

Event Info:

When: Sunday 21st March, 9 – 10:30pm

Where: Zoom (but you can have your laptop or phone anywhere you like, really!)

Price: Free! But if you would to make a donation to Gingerbread you can do so here.
