Event description

Description

Comedy Night in support of the RCN Foundation

Doors open 6pm, event starts 7pm

Country Mile Comedy Club confronts the old stereotype that female comedians only talk about their periods by reminding us why we all need to know about periods, fertility, contraception and pregnancy in the first place. None of this is dirty or secret, and happens to women at some time in their lives. Join us for a celebration of surfing the crimson wave!

There will be a cash bar on the night, so bring some change for refreshment!
