Cambridge Comedy Festival
Grange Farm, Huntingdon.
The Cambridge Comedy Festival was launched in 2007 by the Jesterlarf Comedy Club with the aim of recreating a micro version of the world famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival experience in Cambridge. Its unique appeal is that it presented a host of big name comedians and the finest emerging to the city as they hone their shows for Edinburgh and beyond and iron out any rough edges. It's been venue based each year but in 2016 and 2017 we moved it outdoors to Jesus Green which proved very popular and due to the current climate this year we've decided to once again host it outdoors but expand it into a fully fledged festival experience.
The festival will take place on Grange Farm in Abbots Ripton, Huntingdon which is where the Secret Garden Party was held - it's a fantastic countryside location and its unique and quirky features lend itself perfectly to a comedy festival. We have over 150 acts appearing across 4 stages packed with so many amazingly funny comedians from superstar household names to the very best circuit acts to left-field fringe acts plus live podcast shows, lots of fantastic kids/family shows and after the comedy shows have finished each evening we've even got comedians having a go at DJ'ing their favourite tunes in the Glade bar area and if all of that isn't enough to tickle your comedy appetite we've also got a fresh water swimming lake on site!
With 500 generously spaced camping pitches right next to the arena you can now enjoy a weekend with family and friends camping and sleeping under the stars after a fun day of top quality comedy. We also have Boutique camping available for those that want their creature comforts.
With either full weekend passes (with or without camping) or individual day tickets available we hope this will offer something to all comedy fans.
We're aware that the lockdown roadmap restrictions are due to be lifted on 21st June and we're looking forward to welcoming you in Step Four. If there are any changes to this date that affect our festival, we will have measures in place for COVID19 safety, none of which will spoil your enjoyment of our stellar line-up.
We have the option to carry out Rapid Lateral Flow tests at the entrance and also enough land available to default to individual 6 person 'bubbles' marked across the arena if needed.
But this is an open-air event which is safest formeeting each other and regardless of the freedoms re-instated in Step Four, we will still be encouraging Hands/Face/Space at all times.
