If you’ve got side-splitting staff, a chuckling CEO, a rib-tickling receptionist or a dry-witted doorman we want to hear their jokes.
We’re giving Black Country businesses the opportunity to host our new JOKE BOX. The festival team are looking to find 365 jokes, over the next 12 months, to put together the ultimate Black Country Joke Book
“All you need to do is host our Funny Things Joke Box for a week and pop it in a prominent place where your staff and/or customers will see it. Then encourage them to take part in the festival by entering a joke and paying £1* to be entered in to a prize draw.” Comments Festival producer, Jenny Smith.
Prizes for the best Jokes entered in to the Joke Box will include free tickets to festival events. Each month a winner will be drawn from the travelling Joke Box and there will also be a prize for the business that collects the most jokes. The jokes will be shared on this page.
All proceeds from the Joke Box will go towards providing tickets to the festival for people from Wolverhampton’s most disadvantaged communities, offering the opportunity to escape all the pressures of everyday life for a time and have a laugh.
The Joke Box will be available January to October 2019.
To book in your week with the Joke Box please contact Jenny Smith on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07967 187822.
