The Joke Box makes its first visit to the Black Country Chamber of Commerce

HAVE THE JOKE BOX AT YOUR VENUE and Help us to collect jokes for the Funny Things by hosting the Joke Box

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.

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