Laughter is the best medicine

The Potters Arms comedy nights are very well established on the comedy circuit, with monthly events taking place in the friendly pub. Across the bank holiday weekend the team were pleased to reintroduce their Comedy Festival which took place in a specially pitched marquee on the village green.  Proving that laughter really is the medicine the team choose to support Scannappeal with a raffle across the weekend raising a magnificent £1,130.00.

Karen Shardlow, Head of Fundraising for Scannappeal said ‘having first met Richard in January 2020 when he was busy planning for a festival, which had to be postponed like so many other events it was terrific to receive the call to say this years festival was going ahead. Huge thanks to Richard and his team for choosing to support Scannappeal and of course our thanks also goes to everyone who attended over the weekend and bought a raffle ticket”.

Richard, who has recently made it to the final 15 in the country of the British Institute of Innkeepers Licensee of the year award semi finals, is busy planning more live comedy at the pub with tickets for their monthly events now on sale. For more information visit The Potters Arms | Laugh
