With a month to go, Laffalang ticket sales have surpassed all expectations and organisers of the charity comedy spectacular fully expect to sell out the two shows at the Westovian Theatre, South Shields, on Friday & Saturday, June 15 and 16.

The show, which have already sold in excess of 300 tickets, will feature the Laffalang Gang with television A-lister Stephen Tompkinson (DCI Banks and currently in The Split).

All profits from the shows will go to the Save South Tyneside Hospital Campaign.

Laffalang producer Gareth Hunter said: ” We are also delighted to announce our compere for the two shows will be the brilliant, absolutely brilliant Steffen Peddie.”

With fewer than 200 tickets remaining for the two shows, Mr Hunter said: “The response has been incredible. Usually people leave it until the last moment to buy tickets and there is a rush in the last week and a walk up.

“This is completely different. Unless people get their tickets now they are going to miss out on what will be hilarious, brilliant events.”

The Laffalang shows are on Friday and Saturday, June 15 & 16 at 7.30pm (both days) at

Westovian Theatre (Ocean Road, opposite Haven Point), South Shields, NE33 2JS
