Ayrshire Hospice have announced a star-studded comedy event for next year featuring some of Scotland’s biggest comedians.

Taking place on March 25 in Ayr Town Hall Gigglin’ it Laldy will see some of Scotland’s top comedians like Karen Dunbar, Craig Hill, and Liam Farrelly come together for a night of laughter – and for a good cause.

Ayrshire Hospice Capital Campaign Director, Hazel McIlwraith, said: “Gigglin’ it Laldy is the next in line of a new series of events we’re producing.

“With increased demand and cost pressures including inflation and rising energy bills, it’s important for Ayrshire Hospice to focus on income diversity.

“We’re bringing four top comedians to raise money for the Ayrshire Hospice’s legacy, and it will be a fantastic night.”

The night will be hosted by Saltcoats comedian, actor, and West FM radio presenter Billy Kirkwood.

All funds raised from the comedy night will go towards the Ayrshire Hospice Capital Campaign which contributes towards the multi-million-pound renovation of the Hospice’s hub in Ayr.

Karen Dunbar said: “I am really pleased to be involved in Gigglin’ it Laldy with Ayrshire Hospice and to be performing in my hometown of Ayr.”

Craig Hill added: “I can’t tell you the amount of fun I’ve had gigging in Ayr! Right chuffed to be back and doin’ our bit for Ayrshire Hospice.

“‘Gigglin’ It Laldy’ fairly sums up what’s gonna be a wee riot of a night, I reckon.

“Cannae wait! I’m floatin’ oan Ayr!”

The new comedy event comes after the Giggin’ it Laldy fundraiser which saw The Christians and The Bluebells headline at the event held in Troon Town Hall on November 13.
