The Secret Policeman’s Ball on The Skinny
For the third year running, the Glasgow University Amnesty International group is holding their very own Secret Policeman’s Ball, the long-running benefit show regularly held for human rights. The prestigious AIUK show has hosted such acts as Peter Cook, Monty Python and the Mighty Boosh alongside many impressive others.
The work that Amnesty International does is vital in the fight against human rights abuses all over the world. In celebration of the 62nd anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the university group is hosting a night of comedy, laughter and high-jinks, with events in previous years winning numerous awards.
Saturday 22nd of January will see the Queen Margaret Union host such well-known Scottish names as 2009 Scottish Comedian of the Year Finalist Chris Henry, our double Bafta Award winning compere, Billy Kirkwood and our television and radio presenting head-liner, Des Clarke.
Doors open at 7.30pm on 22nd January at the Queen Margaret Union, University Gardens. Tickets are Â£5 and are available from the QMU box office, as well as online via www.guamnesty.org.uk.
