Bill Bailey Live! A charity fundraiser for Winston’s Wish 

Date: Wednesday 13th September 2023 

Venue: The Centaur, Cheltenham  

We are delighted that beloved British comedian, actor, writer and Strictly icon Bill Bailey will be performing exclusively for Winston’s Wish.   

Bringing his musical virtuosity, surreal tangents and trademark intelligence, Bill will perform at The Centaur, Cheltenham on Wednesday 13th September with the aim of raising funds to help us ensure no child or young person has to face the devastation of grief alone.  

Paul Moore, Director of Fundraising & Marketing for Winston’s Wish said: “We are delighted that Bill has chosen to continue his support in such an incredible way, not only raising vital funds but also helping us to raise awareness of our work so that we have an even greater chance of reaching the thousands of grieving children and young people who are still sadly unaware of the support available to them from Winston’s Wish. 

Mr Moore added “Thanks to Bill’s generosity, we have an opportunity to raise awareness while he brings laughter and joy to his audience. So many young grieving people feel like they’re never going to smile, let alone laugh again. This is an important reminder that even in the darkest of moments, there is hope and we’re incredibly grateful to get to work alongside him and his team on this special event.” 

Having toured live shows since the early 00s, Bill has entertained crowds with comedic live performances tackling topics such as politics, philosophy and the pursuit of happiness.  

Also an accomplished actor, panellist and presenter, Bill has appeared in offbeat TV sitcoms Spaced and Black Books, and has been seen on Jonathan Creek, Skins  and Midsomer Murders  and in Edgar Wright’s Hot Fuzz. Bailey was also a team captain on Never Mind The Buzzcocks and a regular face on QI and Have I Got News For You. 

Bill is a prolific writer with numerous books under his belt. The Bill Bailey’s Remarkable Guide To Happiness, a collection of funny and thoughtful essays exploring the nature of happiness, was published on 15 October 2020. That same year, Bailey partnered with Oti Mabuse to win the 18th series of  Strictly Come Dancing. 

In 2021 and 2022, Bailey embarked on his En Route To Normal  tour, traversing the UK along with an extended run in Australia and New Zealand.
