Giles Bell is organising an evening of live comedy and music with BBC 1 'Room 101' creator, former 'They Think It's All Over' host and comedy legend Nick Hancock (who also happens to be an Old Salopian) in aid of Restart Africa  Nick will be accompanied by master "Dad Joker" Giles Bell and up and coming stand-up Kiran Morjaria.

A message from Giles: "Nick Hancock does not do many nights like this and it is a chance to see someone who has worked in the entertainment business for many years. He is going to tell a few stories and amuse us all!  The ticket price (£40) includes a meal, a free drink and top-quality entertainment. You can invite your friends to come too! You will also be helping some very deprived children, so you will feel good while having fun. How marvellous is that!?"
