The Civic Arts Centre in Oswaldtwistle is set to celebrate the first anniversary of the Manford’s Comedy Clubs with a visit from Jason Manford himself.
The Manford’s Comedy Clubs, set up by Jason and his brother Colin started a year ago to host the finest stand-up comedians in locations around the UK, including Oswaldtwistle.
A huge celebration will be held on Sunday, April 5 to mark not only the first birthday of the comedy clubs, but also to celebrate the management of the Civic Arts Centre taking control of the management of the theatre.
Gayle Knight, Creative Director said: “We are entering a really exciting time at the Civic, with a diverse range of new events being programmed in throughout the year.
“We are excited to be hosting the Manford’s first birthday party and delighted to have been chosen above all of the Manford’s other clubs to share both theirs and own celebrations.”
The birthday celebration marks the occasion of the first weekend that the Civic Arts Centre will manage the theatre situated above the Arts Centre, and managing the whole building under ‘The Civic Arts Centre and Theatre’ Tickets are £12.50.
Their anniversary celebrations will be followed by an exclusive performance by Jason Manford on Sunday, April 19.
Jason Manford said ‘We’re really excited and very honoured that the guys at Oswaldtwistle wanted Manford’s to be involved in their celebration of taking over the beautiful theatre there, and it seemed natural to tie in our birthday ‘do’.”
The event ‘Jason and Friends’ will be a one-off exclusive performance by Jason in association with Manford’s Comedy Clubs.
Tickets are £20 and are on-sale from the venue and also from www.manfordscomedyclub.com/oswaldtwistle .
