Danny Posthill show

BGT POSTER 2(1)Comedy impressionist Danny Posthill is to perform in a show at Mariners Park later this year on a night which is sure to provide laughs aplenty.

Danny, who reached the final of hit ITV talent show Britain’s Got Talent earlier this year, will perform at the ground on Saturday, November 21.

The event is being billed as ‘Night of a Thousand Stars’, with Danny, from Hartlepool, set to run through his array of impressions, with some surprises sure to be in store.

The MC for the night will be Joe Allon, who will also host the talk-in with former Newcastle United and Manchester United winger Keith Gillespie at Mariners Park on Saturday, October 24.

The shows will be among the first to be held in one of the new function rooms at the ground, which are currently being renovated.

South Shields Football Club commercial manager Colin Docherty said: “We’re very excited that Danny is coming to Mariners Park.

“The nation fell in love with him on Britain’s Got Talent, with Danny’s impressions not only excellent, but also hilarious.

“To have him at Mariners Park provides us with another great event, and we’re sure that tickets will be at a premium again.

“Joe Allon will be a brilliant MC for the night, and everyone at the club is looking forward to it, as well as the Keith Gillespie talk-in.

“Anyone who is interested in either of the events should book up fast, as tickets are going very quickly.”

Tickets for the night cost £20, which includes a pie and pea supper, while tickets for the Keith Gillespie talk-in are also on sale for the same price.
