The comedy tent returns for 2017! After a great time at 2016’s festival, compere Pete Otway returns with a stellar lineup for this year’s festival.
Eddy is our headliner for the evening, equally at home internationally having taken to the stage from Norway to China with just about everywhere in between. He was one of the first ever comics to perform in Myanmar and invitations to perform at the Altitude Festival in the French Alps, the New Zealand International Comedy Festival and both the Melbourne and Perth Comedy Festivals in Australia have secured his place in the comedy industry.
He is also a regular at the Edinburgh Festival where he once even played a gig naked! Thankfully no cameras were allowed into the venue.

comedic timing, a little help from his guitar and a hint of David
Mitchell in Peep Show’ – Leicester Mercury
Opening the night for us is Bethany Black. Unique, striking, cutting… An evening with Bethany is a one way ticket to a world you never knew existed. Once described as ”unremarkable” by a clueless imbecile, she has gone on to astound and amuse audiences throughout the UK. She provides a sarcastic and dark view of the world’s taboo subjects in a neat PVC clad package. Slender, stunning and a constant source of confusion for the menfolk in the audience, Bethany will always leave you wanting more.
