Get Involved

There are lots of ways to engage with WDCF. Check out the details below and get in touch!


Performing at West Didsbury Comedy Festival is by invitation only. We book everyone from HUGE TV comics, to local favourites and the best up and coming acts on the circuit. If you would like to be considered, or you are an agent with acts, please email with ‘ACT’ in the email title.

For newer comedians we also have the West Didsbury New Act of the Year Competition, with heats before the festival and the final as the closing show. Keep an eye on our social media for details of how to apply. We progress people from this into paid work and many of the acts who entered last year have had numerous gigs with us throughout the summer.


We are always looking for new businesses to partner with and have a whole host of amazing sponsorship opportunities on offer. Always competitively priced and offering you a great return on your investment, plus the knowledge of knowing you are supporting a vital community event. To talk in more detail please email with ‘SPONSOR’ in the email title.


Throughout the year and during the festival we do have opportunities to work with us both as a volunteer and paid. Giving experience to those wanting to learn the ropesĀ  is really important to us and where we can help we will! If you love comedy and our community and have experience or a burning passion for front of house, web design, marketing, techy stuff or just really love showing people where to sit, get in touch at with ‘WORK’ in the email title.
