Comedy Festival

Thorner Comedy Festival 2020

Began in 2005, when we hosted Alan Carr, Rich Halland Jason Manford. Since then we have welcomed a stream of stars from Mock the Week, Have I Got News For You, 8 out of 10 Cats, Live at the Apollo, etc. …ALL loving an evening with the legendary Thorner audience!

Following the cancellation of 2020’s festival, we can’t wait to announce the next event via our Facebook page. Follow us if you want to be the first to hear what we have in store!

The 2019 Festival took place on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd February…
