Comedy comes in many forms and Leicester Comedy Festival has always tried to reflect that in the events programmed and the people who are involved in creating each festival. This approach has existed since the event began in 1994 and has resulted in numerous projects and partnerships with organisations across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We’re proud of the work we do with others, as we try and ensure the festival remains “a pretty broad grin” (The Guardian) for as many people as possible.

For a handy access guide to festival venues, you can download it here.  The guide gives some information about physical access to the majority of our venues. If you have specific queries or questions, please contact the venue direct.

We have a range of show for all ages across the festivals. Many shows will have an age guidance on their listings, which can be found in the bottom left hand corner of the event listing. You can also download our age guidance list here.

If you have any have any comments about how we can continue to make the festival more accessible,
