What is Red Nose Day?

Red Nose Day is a big British fundraising event

Red Nose Day is organised by Comic Relief, a British charity, founded in 1985 by the comedy scriptwriter Richard Curtis (known from Love Actually) and comedian Lenny Henry. Comic Relief was founded in response to famine in Ethiopia but has since then supported many projects in the world and in the UK. The highlight of Comic Reliefs appeal is Red Nose Day, a biennial telethon held in March. Here many celebrities lend a hand in order to raise money for people who need a hand. Red Nose Day alternates with Sport Relief which is also held every 2 year. Here sporters help raising funds for a wide range of projects.

This year’s Red Nose Day will be held on Friday the 24th of March 2017. It will culminate in a night of unmissable live comedy o with hosts including Sir Lenny Henry, Joe Lycett, Miranda Hart, Rob Beckett, Romesh Ranganathan, Warwick Davis, Sally Phillips, Greg Davies, Jonathan Ross and French & Saunders.
