That odd storm aside, the weather has been utterly smashing lately and what better way to make the most of it that with another tip-top summer event at The Stand on Saturday 24th June. After a rip-roaring success with their Village Fête last month, they’re back with Mr Shindig’s summer BBQ.

It’s another free party on the terrace with a full day’s entertainment, all starting at 12pm. It all starts with a comedy show from Mr Shindig’s Laughter Store. Regular hosts Joby Mageean and Hal Branson welcome along the brilliantly silly Seymour Mace, the always effervescent Sammy Dobson and top up-and-comers Neil Harris and Julie Grady Thomas. After an afternoon of side-splitting fun, it’s on to music with Many Moons and the bluesy Nearly Dennis to soundtrack an afternoon of fun in the sun.

There’s the usual BBQ food, prize draws, and the classic ‘Bring Ya Da’ competition in between, and you can dance and drink into the early hours too, as a DJ set from Nature’s Revenge will round out a day stacked with good times to be had, that you won’t want to miss.

Mr Shindig’s Comedy BBQ is at The Stand, Newcastle on Saturday 24th June.
