Peter Kay announces 3rd charity Car Share screening

The events will raise funds for The Lily Foundation.

Blackpool Opera House will now host three special charity screenings of Peter Kay’s award winning BBC series Car Share. The event will showcase four episodes of the BBC One sitcom, including the premiere of two brand new episodes; Car Share: Unscripted and the series finale.

Funds raised from the event will support The Lily Foundation.

“The Lily Foundation is an inspiring charity that helps to improve the lives of children with Mitochondrial Disease,” Peter Kay says. “I’ve had first-hand experience of the Foundation’s work and I’m proud to raise both awareness and much needed funds to help with the inspiring work they provide to children and their families.”

Fans will also be able to watch the exploits of John and Kayleigh, played by Peter Kay and Sian Gibson respectively, during a special matinee performance on Saturday 7 April 2018, having sold out the evening event in minutes and announced another screening on Friday 6 April.

The series first aired on the BBC in 2015, introducing assistant manager John and promotions rep Kayleigh to the world. To date the series consists of two seasons, with each episode showing the pair’s often hilarious journeys to and from work.

The unscripted episode and the series finale will round off season two at the charity event.

Peter Kay’s Car Share has celebrated critical success, winning Best Comedy at the 2016 National TV Awards, as well as the 2016 BAFTA for Best Male Performance and Best Scripted Comedy.
