Finding a Venue
To perform at the Leicester Comedy Festival or the UK Kids' 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 The UK Kids' Comedy Festival and their booking details. There may well be other venues which are not listed but can host Festival events; if you want help approaching them to take part in the Festival then speak to one of the team.
When you're researching potential venues - check the location, the size, how they promote their events, whether they run regular comedy nights, check their social media pages and ask other comedians about their experiences.
When you get in contact them make sure you discuss:
Dates & times
The duration of your show
Any technical requirements for your show
What promotion they’ll help with and what promotion you’re going to provide
The ‘deal’ – who is getting the ticket income and who is paying the Festival Fees
