A Northampton cinema is set to present a “very special night” of comedy when it airs as-yet-unseen episodes of Peter Kay’s Car Share.
On Friday (March 31) fans will be able to watch never before seen footage of the BBC show, outtakes, and the premiere of two brand new episodes from the second series.
Northampton Vue, based at Sol Central, is one of only 150 screens across the UK taking part, and all the net profits will be donated to Comic Relief.
Comic Relief founder, Richard Curtis, said: “Peter has been a long-standing supporter of Red Nose Day, from honing his miming skills for the ‘Amarillo’ single, to taking on his toughest challenge, ‘Sit Down for Comic Relief’, and the amazing Phoenix Nights Live, which made over 5 million pounds.
“We’re always bowled over by his generosity and the originality of the stuff he does for us. The first series of Car Share was genius and so we’re completely thrilled that he is offering up a special broadcast of the new series across the UK to help raise cash for Comic Relief this year.”
On the night ticket holders will also be able to see a Q&A with Peter Kay and Sian Gibson answering questions put to them by the public.
Peter Kay said “I’m so excited that we’re able to premiere some of the new series and raise money for Comic Relief. I really hope people enjoy this very special night.”
