This is your chance to win 2 tickets to Glastonbury Festival while doing some good
Red Nose Day is a great excuse to have a laugh while raising money for Comic Relief and a great chance to give back and do good while also having the opportunity to win prizes in the competitions when you donate.
Among some of the prizes that could be won this year, are 2 tickets to Glastonbury 2022, with the option for up to £200 of your associated travel costs covered and a pre-erected 2-person tent.
Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day telethon – hosted by Alesha Dixon, David Tennant, Zoe Ball, Paddy McGuinness and Sir Lenny Henry – will air on Friday, 18th March at 7PM on BBC One, running to 10PM.
After the BBC News at Ten, AJ Odudu and Joel Dommett will continue the laughs with the Prizeathon at 10:35PM (which will also be available to watch online on iPlayer) serving up live music, comedy sketches and a chance for viewers to support Comic Relief by entering some unmissable Text to Win Prize Draws.
Comic Relief is an operating British charity, founded in 1985 by the comedy scriptwriter Richard Curtis and comedian Lenny Henry in response to the famine in Ethiopia – with the concept being to get British comedians to make the public laugh, while raising money to help people around the world and in the United Kingdom.
A statement shared by BBC said: “Incredible prizes on offer during the night include a pair of tickets to this year’s highly anticipated Glastonbury Festival, a brand new hybrid car, and so much more.
“Plus, there’s fantastic live music in the studio from George Ezra who will be performing his brand new single ‘Anyone For You’, alongside some more amazing musical performances that are not to be missed!”
AJ Odudu said: “Hosting one of the biggest charity events on television really is such an honour and I can’t wait to play my part in helping to raise funds for Comic Relief. With Joel Dommett by my side I’ve no doubt there’ll be plenty of laughs and I can’t wait to dish out prizes galore!”
Joel Dommett added: “OMGICBI (oh my god I can’t believe it!) I’m helping host Comic Relief! It’s a huge honour to be asked and I can’t wait to raise plenty of cash while hopefully providing few laughs along the way!”

Meanwhile, earlier this month Glastonbury revealed its first big line-up announcement poster of the acts who will be playing at the Festival this year.
Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar will be joining previously announced headliner Billie Eilish and top the bill at this year’s event when it finally returns for the first time since 2019, after two consecutive cancellations due to the coronavirus crisis.
Eilish will be playing the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night – and by doing so make history as the youngest ever solo artist to headline the Festival at only 20-years-old.
Another historic moment will occur when Sir Paul McCartney takes to the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday night, which will subsequently make him the oldest Glastonbury headliner at 80-years-old.
Diana Ross will likewise be performing on the Pyramid Stage for the Sunday Teatime Legends Slot, while Lamar will be headlining the same stage later in the day.
Although the recent poster revelation added more than 70 acts to the 2022 bill, this year’s Festival announcements are far from over.
There are lots more performers and attractions wanting in the pipeline to be announced – before the full line-up plus times will finally drop around June time – as recently confirmed by Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis.
That said, there are many artists who confirm themselves prior to the official announcements by divulging the news during interviews, via social media or website listings.
Some of the recent artists to self-confirm for Glastonubry 2022 include Fatboy Slim, Chris Difford, Carl Cox, Haim, Courtney Barnett, Glastonbury-staple Craig Charles and Black Dyke Band – who said they will be opening the Pyramid Stage on Sunday morning (26 June).

Glastonbury 2022 is set to take place at its natural home in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from Wednesday 22nd to Sunday 26th June.
DON’T BE FOOLED:
Glastonbury Festival would very much like fans to be aware that there are people out there who will try and sell fake Glastonbury tickets to unsuspecting, willing and innocent potential purchasers.
Although Glasto-veterans who have been going to the Festival for quite some time may recognise these scams for what they are, newcomers to the Festival might not know that tickets are only sold on one site which is: glastonbury.seetickets.com – and any other site claiming to sell tickets for the Festival are not authentic.
