We are thrilled to announce that both Leicester Comedy Festival and The UK Kids’ Comedy Festival will go ahead in February 2021. Big Difference Company, the registered charity which produces the festivals, will work with our long established (& new!) partners to make the event as festive as possible, following the latest advice from government and our local authorities. Both festivals will take place from 3-21 February 2021.
The festival team is committed to producing a significant online programme in February, plus as many live events as regulations will allow. If you have ideas about getting involved please get in touch as soon as possible.
It seems likely that the 2021 festivals will be the first major comedy events to take place since lockdown began in March 2020 and organisers want to continue to make them as much of a national celebration as possible. There will once again be special events, including Q&As with special guests to be announced, seminars and discussions and online comedy performances. The UK Kids’ Comedy Festival will feature live performances and workshops in schools and community settings, as well as online shows.
