If you want to escape the hearts and roses image of Valentine’s Day this year the University of Leicester could provide the ideal antidote.

As part of the Leicester Comedy Festival and a celebration of the University’s 80th Anniversary, Stamford Hall Junior Common Room is presenting an evening of stand-up comedy with the inimitable Men in Coats, winner of the BBC New Comedian of the Year 2001 Alan Carr and the Canadian Phil Nichol, described as “comedy banshee on the loose”.
