Including BGT's Daliso Chaponda

 Manchester’s Frog & Bucket comedy club is to stage a fundraising night for the victims of the Manchester Arena terror attack and their families. 

The gig, on June 25, will be headlined by Britain’s Got Talent star Daliso Chaponda, and compered by Funz And Gamez’s Phil Ellis.

Also appearing are Karen Bayley, Allyson June Smith, Danny Sutcliffe, Mark Grimshaw, Ryan Gleeson and Mick Ferry.
