Be aware, it's not just the films that'll have you trembling with fear.

Ed Byrne- If I'm Honest

When: Thursday 14th October

Where: Victoria Park, Southport

 You'll likely recognise Ed Byrne as a regular panellist on BBC Two's Mock The Week. Now he's setting off on his own tour and is taking a deep down look at himself. The purpose being to discover whether or not he has any traits that he'd actually want to pass onto his children. So expect at least some self-deprecation and a whole bunch of hilarious observational comedy.
