Voices for change

Britain is a culturally diverse nation but this is still not reflected as much as it could be in the world of comedy writing.

WGGB Comedy Chair Dave Cohen (Have I Got News For You, Not Going Out, Horrible Histories) looks at how to bring more BAME and working class voices onto our screens and radios in this WGGB event at the Leicester Comedy Festival.

The free event features Paul Sinha, Dane Baptiste and Mrs Barbara Nice, and takes place on Saturday 16 February 2019 (12pm to 1.30pm).

It is free but you need to reserve a ticket.

For further updates and to reserve tickets go to the festival website.
