How does the festival work?
That's easy. The festival is across 3 days. Friday 6th August to Sunday 8th August. THREE evening shows, and TWO afternoon shows.
The main difference is that our AFTERNOON shows arent just run-of-the-mill shows with 3 acts doing 20 minute performances. They are well known comedians off the telly doing their FULL hour long preview tour shows before they take them around theatres. So the AFTERNOON shows combined last over 3 hours in total. You can come and go as you please to the food van, pub, toilet, local business stalls, or even home to check on the kids/dog/fish.
Afternoons run from 1pm til around 5:45 and evenings run from 7:30 to about 10:15 so there's even time to go home if you want between the afternoon and evening, but we'd recommend using that time to rest your aching sides and cheeks, and topping up your glasses!
Other than that, the shows work exactly as usual.
How much are tickets? Usually our usual comedy night tickets are £15. For the festival you have various options as follows:
EVENING ONLY £16
AFTERNOON ONLY £24
AFTER & EVENING £36
WHOLE WEEKEND PASS £77
VIP WEEKEND PASS (no queueing and reserved seating) £100
Where is the show? Our shows are outdoors at The Farmer Inn, in their large pub field in Catherington - PO8 0TD
Will I get sent tickets? Not physical ones. When you buy tickets you will get sent an email that says *THIS IS YOUR TICKET*, but your name will go down on the gate anyway, so you'll get in, don't worry!
Is it safe? Yes. Our shows are all currently outside in the fresh country air, socially distanced within bubbles, and following all East Hampshire District Council guidelines.
Is there parking? There is FREE parking at the pub itself, as well as FREE parking around 50 yards past the pub on the left in a public car park, and about 100 yards past the pub on the right in the All Saints Church car park. You can also use the Jubilee Hall public car park on the roundabout as you enter Catherington.
What time does it start? The afternoon shows start at 1:30 and the evening shows start around 7:30pm and finish around 10pm. The gates open around 6:15pm for the evening and midday for the afternoon.
Is food and drink on sale? Yes our shows are in a pub garden so food and rink is available although with current restrictions we would heavily suggest arriving to eat before the show and consuming it in their small pub garden directly behind the pub building instead of in the show garden.
Does the show take card payments? Yes you can buy food, drink AND tickets at the event using card.
How does seating work? You will be taken to your seating space, which will be distanced from the next group by at least 1.5m YOU HAVE TO BRING YOUR OWN CHAIRS (camping or garden). You will not see the stage if you sit on the ground.
