  • What a feast of comedy we had in June at CIL venues. Edinburgh Previews took centre stage and the amazing Laura Lexx brought her show to a Micro Pub in Wigston and that was followed by Rob Gee and Scott Bennett the very next day, in a special comedy weekend. There was also a competition for new acts that was won by one-liner comedian Sean McBurney.
  • Scott Bennett was back with us in Lutterworth a week later, coupling up with Josh Pugh for their Edinburgh Previews. The it was Josh's turn to return to the Anstey venue to do it all over again, this time, accompanied by Tom Toal.
