Join us for an evening of laughs with local comedian and Britain’s Got Talent’s 2018 winner, Lee Ridley (AKA Lost Voice Guy).

Lee has cerebral palsy and uses a communication aid in his stand-up act. Come and enjoy the show whilst raising awareness of speech, language and communication needs as part of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapist’s Giving Voice campaign.
