In March, the delightful Jo Brand will be hosting a special night of entertainment in honour of her good friend Helen Griffin, the much-loved actor, writer and activist who died in 2018 - in Helen's hometown of Swansea.
An Evening with Jo Brand takes place at the Swansea Grand Theatre on Tuesday, 31st March, and the line-up will feature stand-up Andy Robinson and veteran Welsh comic Noel James - with more to be announced. With Swansea being Helen's home city, the Grand is the perfect location for such a tribute. Please see the attached press release for full details.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
