Award-winning comedian Sarah Millican has just sold-out another night at Pocklington Arts Centre next month following on from her sell-out performance at Pocklington Arts Centre in December.

The event, on 5 July, billed as ‘Sarah Millican & Friends’, will be a warm-up show prior to a major nationwide tour in autumn 2015 and spring 2016.

The gig, which was promoted via both the venue’s and Millican’s mailing lists, sold out in just 15 minutes.

With comedy events proving so popular at the venue, advance booking is advised for forthcoming shows with Patrick Kielty (31 October) and Jenny Eclair (6 November).

Arts Centre manager Janet Farmer said: “We are thrilled that Sarah has once again chosen the venue to preview new material prior to her next tour.

“The booking highlights the reputation the venue has gained within the industry over the last decade with both performers and agents.

“We have always tried to balance our comedy programme with established performers to young emerging talent in addition to Edinburgh Festival preview shows.”
