Leicester Comedy Festival is produced by registered charity Big Difference Company and our aims are to support new & emerging talent, celebrate British comedy and support comedians, promoters and venues to put on the best shows and events. We increasingly rely on donations to support the festival and receive these from a number of businesses, comedians and members of the public who value what we do each February, and throughout the year. We have a growing number of supporters and several new partners so a massive thank you to them and everyone who works on the festival and supports what we do. We simply couldn’t do it without you.
