My Big Fat Weirdos Christmas Wedding: An Alternative Comedy Pantomime
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Entering its 5th year, the Weirdos Alternative Christmas Panto is becoming the silliest and most anarchic fixture in the comedy calendar.
A giant cast of the best and most unpredictable comedians around.
In this brand new pantomime expect love, violence, music and poorly made cardboard props.
Do not expect a normal pantomime.
All funds go to Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity.
