We are sorry to announce that in line with UK Theatres and SOLT guidance, we have taken the decision to temporarily postpone all events in the theatre at Hackney Empire.
This means that A BELTER FOR THE SHELTER will no longer take place on 20 May. We are saddened not to be able to work with Hackney Winter Night Shelter for this year’s A BELTER FOR THE SHELTER. Their fundraising is vital to end homelessness in Hackney and we hope in these difficult times that, if you are able, you will consider making a donation to HWNS. Click here to donate.
The well-being and safety of our staff, customers and partners is paramount and cancelling these events is the best way to protect our community’s health. We are sure that you will understand this decision.
Join us for another spectacular evening of comedy in aid of Hackney Winter Night Shelter.
Going into its 6th year with another incredible line up at the Hackney Empire, this annual charity event raises money for the Shelter’s vital work with local homeless people. All money raised on the evening goes towards keeping people off the streets of Hackney, providing them with a hot meal and warm bed throughout winter.
Stewart Lee will be leading the laughs for the evening along with a stellar line up Daniel Kitson as compare, Rosie Jones, Bridget Christie, Paul Hamilton and more acts to be announced soon.
Raffle tickets will be available for sale, so please bring cash with you on the night. All money raised goes towards keeping people off the streets of Hackney this winter and providing them with a hot meal and warm bed.
