Laugh out loud at one of the top comedy events in England

Bath, Somerset

Catch famous acts at the Bath Comedy Festival – a series of events in April.

Move over, Edinburgh! Bath’s very own comedy showcase features the best of British comedy talent (Arthur Smith, Jenny Eclair, Lucy Porter, Mark Thomas, Paul Merton and Miles Jupp to name but a few).

And since its inception in 2008, the festival has been dedicated to comedy in all its forms, housed in the intimate and beautiful setting of historic Bath – one of the world’s few cities designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Name the format and you’ll find it here, from caricatures and cartoons to mime and movies. “What makes this festival special are its unique events and the ability to deliver the intimate experience of quality performances in small to medium-sized venues,” says its director, Nick Steel.
