Sony Award Winning Stand-Up and Co-Presenter of Radio 4’s Infinite Monkey Cage Robin Ince is supporting Marsden Library.
Robin Ince will be live in Marsden’s Mechanics Hall on Monday 27th June, offering his brand of chaotic stand-up and helping Friends of Marsden Library to raise money for the Library.
Jenny Hemming from Friends of Marsden Library said ‘We were bowled over when Robin offered to do the gig on expenses because it was for the Library. It’s incredibly generous, and we’re hoping for a really good turnout to welcome him to Marsden. It just shows how much Libraries are valued, that people will donate their time to them like this.”
Tickets for the gig are on sale now, £9/£7, from Marsden Mechanics Hall (www.marsdenmechanics.co.uk, phone 01484 844857).
