Cardiff Amnesty International and the Cardiff Open Air Theatre Festival are proud to announce STAND UP IN THE PARK in support of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe on Sunday 24th June 2018, 8.00pm (bar opens at 6.30pm).
Join us for a night of comedy and awareness, throwing a spotlight on the plight of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe. The second “Naz Night” of comedy at the Cardiff Open Air Theatre Festival will feature an eclectic selection of superb comics, compered once again by the outstanding Clint Edwards.
Cardiff Amnesty and Cardiff Open Air Theatre Festival are also inviting you to share your favourite jokes on the night. We are asking you to tweet your joke – or just something that makes you laugh or smile – on 24 June using the hashtags #ChooseLaughter and #FreeNazanin in support of Nazanin and her family.
Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is a British-Iranian national who was arrested in Tehran on 3 April 2016 when returning to the UK from a family holiday with her young daughter Gabriella. Following an unfair trial conducted in secret, she was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment for unspecified national security crimes which has resulted in a serious deterioration of her mental and physical health. She remains in prison, separated from her now three-year-old daughter and from her husband. Find out more
