Stand up for Peace


I’ve been sent details of a comedy night this Thursday at the Cockpit Theatre near Paddington. It’s organised by the excellent Children of Peace charity, a non-partisan organisation working in both Israel and Palestine to shield children from the brutality of war.

The ‘Stand for Peace’ initiative was launched last year and following its glowing success is being repeated this Thursday.

Tickets are limited and priced at £15. You can buy them here.

Don’t miss out!
