The new Comedy Bingo Spring Socials are a great way for people to enjoy a great afternoon out and form new friendships. 

The events have been created by Southport Festival and Big Comedy UK Director Brendan Riley as a way of bringing people together and tackling isolation during these cold months. 

Brendan Riley said:

“Things are looking tough this year for our retired and ageing community, and indeed for everyone. This event is open to anyone, it could be young mums, blokes living on their own, people who have been widowed, those who are new to Southport. We want to include as many people as possible. 

“These events are all about companionship and community, everyone gathering together and enjoying some real fun in a nice, friendly, warm environment.”
