Consett’s first ever Comedy Festival, held over the bank holiday weekend, was a huge success and was enjoyed by all in attendance. Organized by LiveWorld Ltd and hosted by The Rugby Club, they are already planning a bigger event in 2023.
The festival was a mix of afternoon shows for the family and evening shows strictly for adults, both of which had some of the biggest names in national comedy.
Acts included – Simon Brodkin, Ivan Brackenbury, Lovdev Barpaga, Steffen Peddie, Barbara Nice, Phil Reid, Wacky Woody, Steve Royle, Adam Morrison, Dom Woodward, Anth Young, Danny Posthill, Jack Gleadow, Clayton Jones, Psychic Stu, Ian Younghusband and Sammy Dobson.
