Gatley will be treated to a night of hilarious laughter on Friday 30th June when we host an evening of all that’s funniest in live, stand up comedy in the Gatley Festival marquee. Tickets for this are sure to be in high demand so don’t hang about!
Now best known to the world for his portrayal of ‘Joe’ in Ken Loach’s 2016 BAFTA winning film I, Daniel Blake, Newcastle’s Gavin Webster is famed and respected by his peers for his uncompromising and unusual approach, hard edged routines, quick-fire pastiche pieces, moronic jokes and sardonic songs. Gavin’s contributions to stand up over the last twenty years were recognised when he was voted Best Live Stand Up by fellow comedians and promoters in the 2014 UK Comedy Awards and we’re looking forward to his Gatley debut.
