HAVE THE JOKE BOX AT YOUR VENUE

Help us to collect jokes for the Funny Things Festival by hosting the Funny Things Joke Box. It’s a great opportunity for you to get your staff and customers involved in the Funny Things Festival in 2019.

All you need to do is host our Funny Things Joke Box for a week, 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, giving a £1 voluntary contribution and to be in a prize draw.

The prizes will include free tickets to festival events. Each month a winner will be drawn from our travelling Joke Box. There will also be a prize for the business that collects the most jokes.

All proceeds from the Joke Box will go towards providing opportunities for Wolverhampton’s most disadvantaged communities to be involved in the Festival, offering the opportunity to escape all the pressures of everyday life for a time and have a laugh.

£50 would fund a place on a comedy workshop for one young person to develop their confidence and build key life skills.

£100 would provide 10 people with a night of laughter at one of the festival events

£250 would provide transport for 10 young people to safely get to and from an event in the city centre

£500 would provide a workshop for a community group in their local area, in a community space of their choice.

£1000 would provide a hot meal, ticket to a show and transport for 20 people

The Joke Box is decorated with our vibrant festival branding and there are clear instructions for how people enter the prize draw, using the Joke Box postcards. There is an interactive button that plays various laughter sound effects when pressed. It is free standing, 110cm high with a 29cm square base. The lid is locked with a padlock.

The Joke Box will be available January to October 2019. See more info here.
