Britain’s Got Talent finalist Micky P Kerr has been hotly tipped for stardom Leeds-based comedian, musician and social commentator has been described as the bastard son of John Cooper Clarke and fuses together music, spoken word and comedy while keeping his tongue planted firmly in his cheek.

“Wins the audience immediately” ★★★★ Three Weeks “You absolutely nailed it!” Simon Cowell

 

 

 

A man who needs little or no introduction is Justin Moorhouse. This highly regarded Manchester comedian and presenter who has taken several comedy shows to the Edinburgh Fringe and toured the UK. In February 2015 Justin performed to over 200 000 people in a 15 night stage version of Channel 4’s Phoenix Nights.

November 16, 2017 by Juetron | 0 comments

Come and celebrate the New Year at the Upperthong Village Hall. We are hosting a New Year’s Eve party with a difference. Rather than celebrate the New Year at midnight – UK time, we’ll be celebrating the New Year at midnight – Madagascar time !!!

So you can enjoy the event with your children and will get them into be for a ‘semi’ reasonable bed time. We’ll be having party games, hot dogs, sweets, music etc. The bar will be open so the adults can start their own celebrations early.

£2.50 each for the event of the year.

 Be quick. Last year we had 120 attend this event with 110 people on standby. We could’ve filled the Village Hall twice !!!!
