The Islands’ Partnership has arranged for comedian and TV presenter Russell Kane to perform at the Five Islands School on Saturday 6th September as part of his hugely successful live show, Smallness. Russell is well known to comedy fans through his regular appearance on TV panel and comedy shows. He also won the top award at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2010. Russell says: “The Isles of Scilly are tailor-made for my Smallness show which celebrates everything small. It all started with a tweet; I was followed by Visit Isles of Scilly on Twitter, tweeted that I’d always wanted to go there, and was invited to perform. It seemed like the perfect opportunity.”  He will be supported on Scilly by popular Cornish comedian, the Kernow King, who is looking forward to sharing the stage with the notoriously energetic comic. Chris Gregory, Chairman of the Islands’ Partnership, says: “We’re thrilled to be hosting Russell on the Isles of Scilly – at our first major comedy event. We’re sure it will be popular with Scillonians and visitors alike. The comedy show is part of our Super September of events on Scilly, which also includes the annual Tresco and Bryher Food Festival and new September Walk Scilly Weekend.” Russell Kane will be performing in the fantastic new performance theatre at the Five Islands School on St. Mary’s. Bar and food will be available. Tickets are £17.50. To book your tickets, email or phone the Islands’ Partnership team on 01720 424036. Suitable for 16yrs and over.
