Comedy and Cabaret this half term

This season The Y is proud to be sponsored by ‘Leeds Building Society’, an independent mutual building society based on Halford Street in Leicester, who are proactively supporting local community initiatives.

This October half term, the international hit show returns to the UK for its third season, after entertaining big and small audiences far and wide. Join us on Wednesday 23rd October at 11am for ‘Huggers’ an energetic and informal variety showcase with comedy, cabaret and a huge amount of fun for all the family to enjoy together!

Making its debut at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2011, Huggers has quickly become a sell-out show at the Brighton and Adelaide Fringe’s and Melbourne Comedy Festival, and has seen them in yet another guaranteed sell out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival proving that comedy and cabaret is not just for adults! Kick starting the first ever UK Huggers tour show in Leicester with a unique line-up featuring the best comedians and entertainers on the circuit today! Including established comedian Lewis Bryan and close up magician Foxy The Funky Magic Genie (BBC’s brand new show ‘Best in Town’). Host Nik Coppin keeps the laughs going with competitions, prizes and interactive games. What better way could you spend an afternoon with the whole family this half term?

'Slickly presented and left the kids wanting more', 2012

"Laughing and smiling until our cheeks hurt, children and adults of all ages were treated to comedy, magic, quizzes and giveaways." Rip it Up, Australia.
