Following on from the announcements for Brighton Pride and Brighton Fringe, the Brighton Comedy Garden is now set for a July return.
The event will be headlined by national and international comedy names, such as Josh Widdicombe, Dara O’Briain, Alan Davies, Aisling Bea and Sara Pascoe.
Held at Preston Park, the 5-day spectacular will take place from Wednesday July 14th to Sunday, July 18th.
Brighton Comedy Garden will emanate from a brand-new outdoor stage that replaces the previous presentation in the Big Top Tent, which will help to alleviate any COVID concerns that attendees may have.
In line with such considerations towards lowering restrictions, tickets will be sold in multiples of two with space and layout specifically designed to be as flexible as possible so that social distancing can be accommodated if restrictions are not lowered, or if there is a possible return to rules should the infection rate rise once again.
Brother and sister duo Cass Randolph and Will Briggs of 57 Festivals, the organisers of the Festival, have already provided a covid safe event in their production of the Greenwich Comedy Festival in September 2020, and therefore have confidence in the ability to bring safe and successful comedy to the city.
They both confirmed in a statement that they are excited to bring back the festival after a successful inaugural event in 2019, and after the 2020 instalment got cancelled, they are ready to bring the show to the Brighton audience, and have worked very closely with the city council to make sure they deliver a safe and enjoyable festival for everyone.
Nish Kumar, Phil Wang, Tom Allen and homegrown Brighton comedian Maisie Adams will also all grace the stage when the show comes to town.
As part of the offering, festival patrons will be able to access a large range of pop up bars and services, serving craft beers, summer cocktails and street food provisions provided by a number of external vendors.
Tickets are already on sale, with prices starting at £25 per ticket, which will all be sold in multiples of two.
