Hi everyone, well the sad news is that we have had to postpone the festival for now.

We are obviously all devastated as our world class line up of comedy had helped us to 1000 ticket sales, still with 6 weeks to go – we were in for a stunning weekend!

However, more important than the shows is the health of our audience, acts and team – we couldn’t risk that for anything and it was becoming impossible to continue to promote and spend money with no sense of what the short term future will bring.

So, we are on ice at the moment (with plenty of gin) and are monitoring the situation. As soon as time frames become clearer we will let everyone who has purchased a ticket and the rest of you know the plan.

We’ve got a tonne of ideas and huge support to make then even bigger when we relaunch. Thanks for your understanding and it goes without saying that anyone that needs a refund will get it upon request.

Please keep safe and go wash your hands right now!

In association with our main sponsor EVO DIDSBURY.
