Storytellers' Club Crumby Christmas: Andy Zaltzman, John Finnemore, Felicity Ward, Sarah Bennetto, James Dowdeswell
A night of true tales by excellent comedians of their funniest ever festive experiences. Weird families and Christmas car-crashes.
Please note: Audience members are welcome to bring the naffest trinkets they've ever received for the 'rubbish presents amnesty'. There will be a prize for the brave bearer of the worst ever present.
Alternatively, people may bring any unwanted tins of food from their cupboards - as the Storytellers' Club will be making a donation at a winter food bank after the show. This is only if you have any to spare, and will be greatly appreciated at this time of the year.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
This event takes place at Kings Place, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
