Connecting people, building community, starting conversation.
Welcome to Blandford Community Promotions, the events promotion and ticketing site for the Blandford Forum Community and surrounding villages. Our aim is organise and host entertainment events in Blandford Forum for the community. We are currently doing this through a series of Comedy events like the Comedy Exchange, along with other events like magic shows. All events we organise aim to be 'clean' and suitable for all.
We are also here to provide a service for community groups and organisations who are running events for the benefit of the community to promote and sell tickets online without all the high costs usually associated with the type of service.
Please note, we are not a Charity and we aim to cover costs and maintain our service. Normally any monies left over after expenses is donated to a local charity as per shown in the advertisment for the event. In supporting events promoted, you are assisting us in developing future events and donating much needed funds to our designated charity for that particular event. Currently no members of Blandford Community Promtions are paid, but do so free of charge. All acts/performers are paid their commercial rate, as are our suppliers.
Current events and ticket prices can be seen in the diary or for more event details click on the Events tab. You are able to pay by debit or credit card online. Please note you do not need a PayPal account, to pay online.
Any questions regarding this site, or interest in using its services should contact us via the Contact Us button at the top of the page.

Winner of the Amused Moose Judges Prize for his 2013 Edinburgh show, yet one of the last comics to appear on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson (making six more appearances with Jay Leno and five appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman), Al Lubel is one of those rare beasts who garners both critical praise and mainstream success. He's supported Jerry Seinfeld, who kindly mentioned "Al has one of the best jokes I have ever heard" and recently fellow comic Adam Bloom gave him high praise by saying Al had "the most original first ten minutes of comedy I’ve ever seen."

THE MONKS are Kevin Moore and Yazz Fetto. They think they can lay claim to being the only Christian comedy sketch group in the UK. They not only do shows in clubs, pubs and small sweaty comedy rooms but also vestries, chapels, and small sweaty churches.
Their current sketch show is ‘The All New Ten Commandments’. This show shines a comic light on the famous commandments found in the book of Exodus. Can these commandments be funny? Are they still relevant in the 21st century? Are the words you’re reading right now important? Each commandment gets a sketch; some get more than one, making this perhaps one of the best value sketch comedy shows ever! Even penny pinching, backstabbing disciple Judas Iscariot would approve.
Tickets for this event are now available online here or from Liz Rawlings. This amazing musical event in Blandford Forum Parish Church promises to be a truly unmissable event. Booking in advance is advisable to avaid dissapointment.
Steve Legg comes to Blandford Forum as part of his 30th avniversary tour, celebrating 30 years on the road as a Comedy Magician. Full of laughs and great magic with lots of audience interaction, Steve performs a show for all the family.
