Guess who’s back? Cecilia and Jack! CALM ambassadors Jack Rooke and Cecilia Knapp bring their winning formula of comedy, poetry and music (and a few surprises) to Ace Hotel, Shoreditch on Thursday 19 January.
The Save The Male showcase aims to raise awareness of male suicide and encourage and inspire people of all ages to engage in creative expression. On “the most depressing week of the year”, comedian Jack and poet Cecilia will gather an exceptionally talented crew to show that creativity can be the best medicine. Check the massive lineup and grab your tickets on the link below:
