A night of curry, comedy and poetry (and fundraising)


stand_up_for_labour.jpgOur City of London branch invites you to Spicing Up The City on Saturday 28th January - a night of great food and great entertainment to help raise funds for our local council election campaign. 

The brilliant Stand Up For Labour event is taking place at Mumbai Square restaurant - minutes from Aldgate and Liverpool Street stations.

Doors open at 6.30pm and tickets are £25 in advance, £30 on the door or £175 for a table of 8. 

Opening act Juliet Meyers is not only an accomplished stand-up comedian, but also writes jokes for many TV and radio shows. She has gone down a storm at events in Chesterfield. Bolton, Banbury, Bath, Ipswich, Loughborough, Kettering, Salisbury, Derby, Chiswick and Kingston.

Middle act Sir Ian Bowler MP is an unlikely addition to the line up as he is a Tory politician. His act is that of a panto villain - contemptuous of the poor and people on the left. Surprisingly Sir Ian has gone down a storm at Stand up for Labour events all over the country (Corby, Preston, Leamington, Ipswich, Bristol, Upton upon Severn, Birmingham, Chiswick, Tottenham, Tooting, London Colney, Uxbridge, Hertford, Bolton and Hailsham).

Headline act Attila the Stockbroker is a punk poet who was launched into public consciousness by Radio One DJ John Peel in 1982/83, and he has spent 35 years touring the world, performing well over 3,000 gigs in 24 countries and releasing 40 LPs/EPs/CDs and seven books of poetry. He is appearing at his second Stand up for Labour event, having performed in Guildford in the summer.

The night is hosted by Crispin Flintoff, who set up Stand up for Labour in 2012 and has now organised over 180 morale-boosting, fundraising events in England, Scotland and Wales. Crispin has featured on Paramount Comedy's 'The World Stands Up'.

To buy tickets, please email our City branch Treasurer Fred Rodgers at fredrodgers@me.com (no booking fee) or buy them online at the Stand Up For Labour website.
