Bath Comedy Festival: 26th March – 14th April


26th March – 14th April

Festival Director Nick Steel says “This year sees Bath Comedy Festival enter its 11th year, boasting a wide and varied programme over 20 days, including more larger scale events, with two Gala shows at the Apex Hotel, two headline events at Bath’s fabulous art deco Forum, plus an Opening Night show and party. There’s something for everyone with a fantastic core programme and expanded affordable festival too!”

Most of our core shows centre on Widcombe Social Club and the Ring O Bells, and our affordable festival continues to expand at Bath Brew House and St James Wine Vaults.

The popular New Act Competition runs over 12 heats, this year all free entry, at The Bell and Brew House, with the finalists competing at Widcombe Social for the coveted Lovehoney Newcomer Award.

I hope you enjoy this year’s fantastic series of events, see as much as possible and discover new comedians and venues in the process. Oh, and look out for our “Polite Box” information point and other surprises around SouthGate.
