The Haslemere Fringe is delighted to announce the launch of the first ever Haslemere Comedy Festival on Sunday, July 9, from midday until late, curated by local MC and stellar professional comedian, Andy Stedman.
This event is taking place at seven popular venues in Haslemere, with many of the venues offering drinks/bars on site and money off vouchers:
Haslewey Community Centre (12.30-6.30pm with a BBQ lunch – 120 max)
Haslemere Hall (7.30-10pm – 350 max)
Dylan’s Ice Cream Parlour – Family friendly and a wide range of free children’s entertainment (1-5pm – 30 max)
ST Engineering (St. Christopher’s Green, 2-7pm – 50 max)
The Station House Restaurant & Bar (2-7pm – 30 max)
Headcase Barbers, Haslemere High Street (1-6pm – 20 max)
Haslemere Museum (1-10.pm – 70 max)
More than 35 professional comedians – the majority of them making a pitstop in Haslemere before appearing at the Edinburgh Fringe – will be appearing, including Mike Gunn, Andrew Ryan, Matt Richardson, Stephen Grant and Jonny Awsum (who recently appeared to great acclaim alongside Ant & Dec on Britain’s Got Talent).
Tickets are strictly for comedy fans over 14 years old – with the exception of the free children’s entertainment event at Dylan’s Ice Cream Parlour on Wey Hill – and are available from Haslemere Hall (01428 642161 or online at www.haslemerehall.co.uk) – or from the other six venues listed.
Tickets are £12 per person for the entire Festival.
Pick up your Comedy Festival wristbands, needed to gain entry to the venues, (but not the free session at Dylan’s), from the new Haslemere Hub next door to Haslemere Station on Saturday July 8 or on the Festival day itself – Sunday, July 9. This will get you into all the venues and the accompanying Comedy Festival Flyer means you can plan and choose where, when and who you want to watch throughout the Festival event.
Comedy Festival flyers will also be available in advance from Haslemere Hall, the Haslemere Hub and the other six venues.
Tickets are limited to just 650 in total for the entire event – so plan your Comedy Festival journey around the venues in advance. Seats are on a first come, first served basis.
