What is Stand Up Get Down?
It’s a bit of comedy; it’s a bit of dance and loads of fun. And it’s all in the name of NCH, The Children’s Charity.
The night begins with some cracking stand up comedy.
When we are all laughed out the floor will be cleared
for some serious dancing.
Jessica Hynes (nee Stevenson – Spaced, Shaun of The Dead,

at live stand up for the first time ever! As curator she

some ‘back in the day’ beats to proceedings.
Guest comedians and DJs will be announced in the run up
to the event, with more surprises on the night.
