Union Jack Radio’s Circuit Breakers 2020

In 2020 we delivered the third year of Circuit Breakers with 8 comedians, up two from the previous years due to the overwhelming number of great applications we received and support from Union Jack Radio.

Our crowd funding campaign raised over £500 from public donations to help enable us to continue to support new and emerging acts who otherwise wouldn’t be able to come to the festival.
