Bath Comedy Festival
Festival Director Nick Steel says "This year sees Bath Comedy Festival enter its tenth year, and what a line-up we’ve got to celebrate! Opening night is 27th March and we’re back at Bath's fabulous art deco Forum venue, this time with Jon Richardson giving us his first Bath gig in many years - I booked his last Bath outing many years ago at the old Widcombe Social Club and I’m over the moon to welcome him back at last! This gig will sell out any minute now." The 10th Anniversary has warranted an expansion of the Festival to a scale hitherto not seen. Widcombe remains the spiritual home of the Festival, with the programme at Widcombe Social Club boasting some very special shows! The Club is all set to become a social hub of the Festival, with its unique venue space and newly refurbished Waterside Arts Bar.
