The Big Glee Giveaway

Multi-award-winning comedy club hands out 1,000 free tickets

Leading UK comedy club The Glee is ensuring a summer of fun by handing out 1,000 tickets – absolutely free!

Under the banner of The #BigGleeGiveaway, the event kicks off on Monday 5 June 2017, and continues until Monday 10 July 2017.

For six sunny weeks, the club will slowly reveal a series of presently secret locations around Birmingham, Cardiff, Nottingham and Oxford where eager comedy fans can grab their freebies – these could be anywhere from local cafes and supermarkets, to major High Street stores.

The locations of the free tickets will be announced on the venue’s website every Monday morning at 10am, and via social media using the hashtag #BigGleeGiveaway.

Eager-eyed punters can then dash to the named locations for a chance to pick up their prize.

Tom Hunt, The Glee’s Marketing Director said: “Building on the success of last year’s give-away, we’re teaming up with leading local businesses in the four major cities where we have clubs.

“We believe strongly in working closely with local businesses to encourage people to get out and enjoy their city, so we hope this campaign will remind people of all the great places on their doorstep.”

The coming months see a host of great acts appearing at the multi-award-winning comedy venues, including Tom Wrigglesworth, Zoe Lyons, Dane Baptiste, Carl Hutchinson, and Lost Voice Guy.

In addition to grabbing free tickets to see some of the best comedians performing in the UK today, lucky ticket-holders will also stand a chance of winning other freebies when they attend the show.

Mr Hunt said: “We want people to have fun this summer and join us to see some comedy’s biggest names ahead of the iconic Edinburgh Festival. The #BigGleeGiveaway is our way of introducing people who perhaps have never seen a comedian to a spectacular live entertainment show.

“We also hope that those who’ve experienced The Glee before will go out and grab their chance to do so again, and enjoy a show on us this summer, free of charge.”

Since launching in Birmingham in 1994 – followed by Cardiff (2001), Nottingham (2010) and Oxford (2010) – the clubs have hosted performances by such A-list acts as Dara O’Briain, Jack Whitehall, Sarah Millican, Alan Carr, Jimmy Carr, Eddie Izzard, Frankie Boyle, Michael McIntyre, Jo Brand, Katherine Ryan, Ross Noble, Jack Dee, Lee Evans and Russell Howard, and earned multiple Chortle Awards for Best Comedy Venue.
