A hospital foundation is organising two nights of entertainment to raise money for research into Crohn’s disease.

St Mark’s Hospital Foundation, in Watford Road, Harrow, is holding a comedy night on December 14 at the hospital’s Jonathan Levi Theatre.

The event is free to attend but donations will be very welcome.

At this event comedians from London’s Comedy Store, including David Mills, and Simon Caine, will perform.

Then, on December 15, the research organisation will host a cabaret night.

There will be music from Laura Davies and Hannah Davies as well as burlesque performances by October Rush.

Both of the shows start at 8pm and children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.

All of the money raised will be used to fund research into Crohn’s disease, an inflammatory bowel disease which causes symptoms including stomach cramps and vomiting.
