The Royal Court is hosting a comedy fundraiser starring comediennes including Sandi Toksvig, Maureen Lipman and Jo Brand to raise money for the Women of the Year Foundation.

Taking place on 10 May, the line-up also consists of Kathy Lette, Meera Syal, Sarah Solemani, Pippa Evans and 'token man' Stephen Mangan.

With the subject of 'Keeping Up Appearances', the evening promises "bon mots, wordly wisdom, hilarious observation and possibly unexpected answers to the burning questions of the moment".

Now celebrating its 60th anniversary, Women of the Year recognises, celebrates and inspires women of all backgrounds.

Chair of Women of the Year Jane Luca said: "We're delighted that these fabulous comediennes have given up their Sunday night to entertain us for an important cause. All the money raised will go towards our Women of the Year Foundation to help more women to fulfil their potential."

A limited number of tickets are available at £30 for the event and drinks reception afterwards; for tickets you can email [email protected]
