It’s not long now until a double bill of humour at Stevenage town centre’s The Forum banqueting suite.

Prolific purveyor of sharp social media quips Philip Simon is one of the acts on the bill.

And he’ll be joined on stage by Robyn Perkins, who has crossed the Atlantic to make her name on this side of the pond. Advance tickets are £10 – you’ll pay £12 on the night – and you can get them by calling Terry Sullivan (07941 045536) or Kerry Mitchell (07795 488172), but you can also pop in and buy one from the reception desk at the town centre Ibis hotel. Doors open at 7pm for an 8pm start, and all proceeds to the Brompton Fountain children’s charity.
