209Over 50 people attended the  Forum in Northallerton last Saturday night to see the first in a new series of shows – Ey Up Stand Up

The event, hosted by Kate Fox, Thirsk based comedian and regular on Radio 4 featured spoken word and comedy from Newcastle upon Tyne based poet Scott Tyrrell, Teesside based character comedian Mike Edwards and Northallerton based part-time performance poet Paul Staines had the audiences rolling in the aisles with laughter

“We are delighted that the Arts Council is funding these events” said Councillor Mrs Bridget Fortune, Portfolio Holder for Customer and Leisure Services.

“It means that we can bring these excellent performers to our audience doorsteps, rather than them having to travel miles to be able to see them.  I know that everyone had a great time at the evening and are already looking forward to the next one, in March.”

Tickets for the next Ey Up Stand Up are available from the Forum www.forumnorthallerton.org.uk 01609 776230
