Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day will this year be broadcast live from Building Six at The O2. Taking place on March 24, 2017, Building Six will be transformed into Red Nose Day’s Comedy Superclub and host stars including Sir Lenny Henry, Joe Lycett, Miranda Hart, Jonathan Ross and French and Saunders.

The live BBC broadcast at Building Six, which is situated at the heart of The O2, will include a night of live comedy, sketches, music moments and fundraising films.

Becci Thomson, head of corporate sales at The O2, said: “We are delighted that Building Six has been chosen by the BBC to host the live broadcast of this year’s Red Nose Day. Building Six’s expansive blank canvas space means we can easily accommodate the set build with ample space for a live audience. Building Six offers so much more than a typical TV studio, making it the perfect fit for Red Nose Day’s big night.”

Lisa Clark, executive producer of Comic Relief, added: “Comic Relief are thrilled to be moving to a new home. Building Six gives us so much space and scope for live comedy, we are confident the audience and the hosts alike are going to feel very welcome there.”
