BBC charity partners to celebrate the UK’s community spirit and resilience with The Big Night In on BBC One

The BBC is celebrating the acts of kindness, humour and the spirit of hope and resilience that is keeping the nation going during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic with a special night of programming for BBC One.

The Big Night In will see the BBC’s biggest charitable partners, BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief, coming together for the very first time for a special night of television. The live show, produced by BBC Studios Entertainment, will offer some light relief and entertainment, whilst celebrating and rewarding those going the extra mile to support their communities in these troubled times.

The star-studded show will feature some of the country’s favourite famous faces trying to support, entertain, cheer up and help out anyone who needs any or all of those things. It will include big surprises, ‘money can’t buy’ prizes, live music performances (from the artists’ homes) and many of your favourite faces coming together (whilst safely apart) to do what they can for those that deserve something special.

The show will also give viewers the opportunity to donate, for those who feel able to do so, to help support vulnerable people of all ages and backgrounds across the UK who will be significantly impacted by the crisis. Funds raised on the night will be split equally between BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief to provide essential support to local charities, projects and programmes across the UK to help those most in need. This funding will not only provide vital emergency support to ensure vulnerable people of all ages are safe, warm and fed, but will also ensure that they are able to continue to learn, and stay connected in order to combat isolation and loneliness.

Broadcast live, while respecting all current social isolating government protocols, this will be Britain’s Big Night In, as we stay at home to help beat the coronavirus. It’s a time to all come together and celebrate our incredible community heroes and hear from the people who need us the most during this challenging time.

The show will be broadcast on BBC One on Thursday 23 April, 7-10pm.

I'm watching - it's alright, basically just lots of Zoom calls/sketches and they've just played the Live Lounge charity single.

I really enjoyed this. It was so nice to see actors return as comedy favourites (the Miranda cast, The Vicar of Dibley, Bad Education, Catherine Tate, Little Britain etc.) I wish actors would make the same sort of effort when we are in normal times. Charity nights are so dry these days.
