Finding a Venue
To perform at Leicester Comedy Festival the first thing you need to do is find yourself a 'spot' in a venue. Most venues are booked by comedy promoters who come to the city for the festival. Below is a list of core venues and promoters that run shows in Leicester Comedy Festival and their booking details. There may well be other venues which are not listed but can host Festival events; if you need more information do get in touch.
Make sure you research the venues you're interested in - check the location, the size, how they promote their events, do they run regular comedy nights, check Facebook, check Twitter and ask other comics about their experiences.
When you get in contact make sure you discuss:
Dates & times
Any technical requirements for your show
What promotion they’ll help with, what promotion you’ll provide
The ‘deal’ – who is getting the ticket income, who is paying the Festival Fees
For 2021, we're going digital! With the uncertainty of the pandemic, and if live events will be allowed in February, we encourage acts and promoters to programme some online shows as well.
We're also very happy to announce a partnership with NextUp as our streaming partner. You can read more about their services here and get in touch with them for more details.
We’ll update this list as more venues register. If you are, or are working with, a new venue – make sure the venue is registered before you submit your show on Eventotron.
If you know that any of the details here are incorrect please get in touch.
