Stars of UK Comedy and Science Stand Up Against Unfair Libel Laws in West End Show

Join CLHG for a night where big names in UK comedy, science and human rights come together on stage to tell us that England?s libel laws have become a dangerous joke.

If you would like to come along, please book your ticket directly from SeeTickets online at:

http://www.seetickets.com/see/price.asp?code=457747&userid={C65093C7-0317-43DB-ABE0-97EC8C70706D}&filler1=see&filler2=art-srch

or on 0844 412 4656 or in person from the Palace Theatre booking office.


We'll then arrange to meetup before and/or after, to set the world to rights.

But be quick as tickets are likely to sell out very quickly!

The Big Libel Gig on Sunday 14 March 2010 at the London?s Palace Theatre will raise funds to support the Coalition for Libel Reform. An eclectic line-up, including Dara ? Briain, Tim Minchin, Marcus Brigstocke, Robin Ince, Ed Byrne, Shappi Khorsandi, Professor Brian Cox, Simon Singh, Professor Richard Wiseman, Dr Peter Wilmshurst and Dr Ben Goldacre, is supporting the campaign for a public interest defence to protect writers, bloggers, academics, human rights activists and performers.

The Big Libel Gig is the brainchild of comedian Robin Ince - whose previous successes include the annual Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People shows and who will be hosting the evening ? and Simon Singh, the science author and broadcaster, who will be talking frankly about the impact of libel fears on scientific debate.
