April Foolery 2023

A wonderful night of comedy and jazz in the West End’s Criterion Theatre, which raised £25,000 for Eastside.

On Monday 24th April 2023, April Foolery, an annual fundraising event of comedy and jazz was held in London’s glittering Criterion Theatre. 500 guests came to show their support, helping to raise £25k for Eastside.

The event saw a fantastic lineup of stand up comedians from Mock the Week and Live at the Apollo. Hosted by Hugh Dennis (Outnumbered, Taskmaster, The Now Show, No Time To Die), the comics shared the stage with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra.

All proceeds from the evening went towards Eastside’s Lund Fund. 

Help us on our mission to raise £100k by the end of 2023.
