Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival
We are still working our way through the hundreds of submissions we’ve received for our 2015 festival – the full programme will be announced on Monday 24th November so only a month or so to wait! There are some incredible shows and events being planned so get ready to laugh loads next February.
Our 2015 Preview Show has been announced as taking place on Friday 9th January at De Montfort Hall. The line-up is a closely guarded secret but expect the usual selection of big names and new acts, all gathered to give you a taste of what’s to come when the main festival rolls into town in February. Tickets are £25
Our friends at Leicester Theatre Group are producing their own version of hit musical Avenue Q just in time for Christmas. This lough out loud, adult themed spoof on TV favourite Sesame Street, tells the stories of the neighbours who live on Avenue Q and contains loads of strong language and adult themes! It runs from 2-6 December at the beautiful Hansom Hall in the middle of Leicester. Tickets are available from just £15 so check out their website
