Here at Leicester Comedy Festival we recognise the benefits of laughter and its positive impacts on many aspects of life. We welcome everyone to come and enjoy the festival and hope that a bit of laughter makes a positive difference for you. Approximately 1 in 4 people experience difficulties with their mental health at some point in their life and everyone can be prone to bad days when we don’t feel at our best. We hope that this festival will be a welcoming environment for you and that it will help to make you smile, and perhaps even have a laugh!

In order to provide additional information to enable those seeking mental health support to enjoy the festival, we have produced a Mental Health and Wellbeing toolkit. This provides a guide to ensure that the festival is accessible and supportive to those who may be experiencing a difficult time. It  also provides contact details of organisations which can provide Mental Health support.  To get your copy, please email: wellbeing@bigdifferencecompany.co.uk
