Your time at the Festival

We want you to have the best experience at Leicester Comedy Festival. To help you, we have put together a Welcome pack that will be sent out a few days before the Festival, but before then, here is some information to keep in mind: 

  • Festival Hub

The Festival Hub will be open on Jubilee Square (LE1 5LB) during the entire Festival. You can pop in to get in touch with staff and ask any questions you might have. You will also be able to get your Festival Wristband there, and display some promotional material. 

 Note: The Festival Hub presence and location for February 2022 is not confirmed yet. We will update and confirm details as soon as possible. 

  • Wristbands

Your Festival Wristband is your flyering license, but it also gives you discounts in shops and restaurants, and access to some special events. These will be listed in your Welcome pack, so keep your eyes open for them! 

  • Volunteers

If you need any help promoting or running your show, we can maybe provide volunteers to support you!  Get in touch.

  •  Accommodation

We have some hotel partnerships that often offer discounts for acts that participate in Leicester Comedy Festival. This information will be communicated in advance, however feel free to ask us! ​

  • Being Green

Leicester Comedy Festival is proud to be in partnership with ReFiesta, and they provided us with a few guidelines to help us, acts, venues and promoters make the Festival green! 

  • Talk to us! 

We understand that being a comedian can be lonely sometimes, especially in a city you don't know. We try to communicate as much as we can about parties, events, places to meet people, to make sure no one feels excluded. However, if you're not sure where to go, what to do before/after your show, talk to us! Our team is here to support you, we'll be able to tell you what's happening on the day you're here, who you can chat to, or help you find the information you need.
