2CC Music & Laughter Show
Byker Masonic Hall’s 2CC (2 chosen charities) team present this year’s 2CC Music & Laughter Show – a real fun-packed, value for money afternoon, starting at 1pm with over 3 hours’ worth of top entertainment.
2CC are hoping the charity event, a good old fashioned variety show, back after a hugely successful show in 2017, will deliver even more music and laughter, raising money for two chosen charities, namely the Tyne Theatre Preservation Trust as well as SSAFA (The Armed Forces Charity).
We are celebrating 100 years from the end of the Great War and 100 years from the formation of the RAF with this years show having a military twist to it.
With a host of fantastic acts to be announced very soon, the 2CC Music & Laughter Show promises to be a hilarious, toe-tapping treat, set against the incredible backdrop of one of the North East’s best-loved entertainment venues, with many brethren giving their time up for free.
