Event Poster

For 44 days in June and July, intrepid Richard and his friends are walking along the stunning and at times rugged South West Coast Path from Minehead round to Bournemouth, a total of 620 miles. Along the way he will be stopping off to bring laughter to audiences and at the same time raising money for the RNLI, the charity whose volunteers save lives at sea.

Come along and enjoy an evening of amusement and laughter all in aid of a good cause - New Life Magazine recently praised him for his “quick wit and hilarious anecdotes,” so audiences are in for a great evening.

Richard, originally from Devon, said: “In all my travels as a comic across the country, time and again I’ve realised there is something delightfully odd about the audiences in the South West, which I think should be treasured.”

He will be performing a free event at The Beach Pub, Exmouth at 7:30pm on Sunday 7th July 2019 and all donations collected during the evening with be for the RNLI.
