Event Date: 19th September, 2019
Friends of the Integrated Education Fund were among the comedy fans making up the capacity crowd enjoying a stellar line-up of performers at “Stand up for Integrated Education” in Belfast on 19 September 2019. Comedians Tim McGarry, Colin Murphy, Wendy Wason, Jake O’Kane and Teresa Livingstone delivered the laughs, welcomed to the stage at the Ulster Hall by IEF Campaign Chair Baroness May Blood MBE.
Building on last year’s success, the team sold out the Ulster Hall and did not disappoint the crowd who roared their appreciation of the banter, songs and one-liners. Friends of the Fund later enjoyed a reception with the cast at the Grand Central Hotel.
The Fund owes a huge debt of thanks to the five comedians who generously gave their time and shared their talents in support of integrated education. We are particularly grateful to Tim McGarry, who yet again pulled out all the stops to get the show on the road. We should also like to thank the stalwart staff at the Ulster Hall who have been great to work with over the past three years, and of course everyone who bought tickets, put up posters, commented on social media, told their friends and turned up for a laugh!
