★★★★★ ‘Cracker punchlines. A shining example of expert comedic timing matched by skilled delivery’ Time Out on Rosie Jones

This galaxy of comedy stars are joining forces to raise some big money for the local charity Small Steps, where pre-school children work on all areas of their development, using the principles of conductive education. Children attending Small Steps sessions have cerebral palsy, other forms of motor impairment, syndromes, or sensory impairment. Children attend a group session once per week with a parent or carer, where up to six children per group all work on similar skills. A team of teachers, conductors and physiotherapists lead the parent/child teams through a structured programme designed to help each child achieve the next developmental steps.

100% of net profits from this show will go to Small Steps SFP, which is a registered charity in England & Wales (1150651).
