Comedy, Coffee and Community, sounds good right? Well that’s what the George Street Social, the recovery cafe operated by the Road to recovery Trust, is bringing to the good people of Newcastle with their comedy night on Thursday 13th June.

The cafe, which opened in 2016 to provide a safe space for people in addiction recovery, is to host a night of comedy featuring Simon Donald and Gavin Webster. Gavin, who appeared in the smash-hit film, I, Daniel Blake, will be performing new material from his upcoming Edinburgh fringe show and Simon Donald, co-founder of the legendary Viz magazine, will be treating the audience to one of his most popular character creations – Barry Twyford

Peter Mitchell, Chair, Road to Recovery Trust said: “George Street has such a great atmosphere because of how welcoming and open the community is. As well as those of us attending recovery meetings, we also see students, local business people and the general public all using the space and enjoying the great coffee and delicious food we have on offer.

Giving up alcohol or enjoying a sober night out needn’t be dull. It’s all about the company after all! And if we throw stand-up comedy into the mix we’re pretty confident we’re going to have the place heaving with laughter.”

The show takes place at George Street Social, George Street, Newcastle on Thursday 13th June from 8pm. The café will be open for food and drinks from 6pm.

Tickets cost £12 Full, £10 concs and advanced booking is strongly recommended.
