Eaves and comedian James Mullinger to host comedy night

On 5th November 2012, Eaves will join forces with comedian James Mullinger to host our first comedy night to raise money for women who have experienced violence.

This exciting event will take place at the distinctive Soho Theatre in the West End and promises to be an event not to be missed.

It’s going to be a great evening of entertainment from both well established and up and coming comedians in an amazing carbaret style venue, as well as supporters getting the chance to win some great raffle prizes.
