On 5th June in Newcastle, at The Stand Comedy Club, Simon hosts a purely cush benefit gig in aid of Dyslexia North East England, a chair-i-dee of what he is patron and that.

At just five quid a pop, with Seymour Mace, Gavin Webster, John Whale, Julie Grady Thomas and acoustic music from The Whodlums, Monday night entertainment doesn’t get much better than this. Book directly through the charity’s ticket number 0786 826 3696. Tickets are also available from the Stand’s box office.
