Griff Rhys Jones returning to Suffolk for charity performance

Griff Rhys Jones is returning to Suffolk for another performance in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Fresh from his tour of Australia, the comedian is to take the floor at Ipswich Town’s Sir Bobby Robson suite on Sunday, 16th December.

His 90-minute set will feature a new mix of tales, stand-up and anecdotes ready for Christmas and the New Year. Topics will include voluntary work, royalty, family Christmases past and present, plus Suffolk and Essex.

Griff said: “It’s a time for giving and this will be a wonderful way of helping EACH, right in the heart of Ipswich, on the eve of Christmas.”

Georgia Memory, EACH Suffolk Fundraising Assistant, said: “This promises to be a great evening of festive laughter. I know last year’s show at Ufford Park Hotel went down very well, so we’re really excited Griff’s supporting us once again.”

Griff has previously praised staff of EACH, that has a hospice in Ipswich, known as The Treehouse, for their “remarkable, inspired and very difficult work” to support children with life-threatening conditions and their families.

The evening at Ipswich Town will begin at 6pm, with welcome drinks and canapés. Griff will start performing at 7pm. There will be theatre-style seating.

Tickets are £29.50 and available online from until Friday, 14 December or until sold out.
