What steps are you taking to ensure you are COVID secure?

Salisbury Comedy Festival will operate in line with COVID guidelines in place at the time of the event. The Government Roadmap suggests that social distancing restrictions will be lifted in full from 21st June. However, should social distancing rules remain in place, we will increase the size of the arena to ensure that that social distancing can be achieved without impacting on the enjoyment of the event.

Should the event be cancelled for any reason outside of our control, your tickets will automatically be carried forward to a rescheduled date.

What else is happening?

As well as 6 hours of back to back comedy, we have partnered with Edward Stokes Funfair to bring you the first adult only funfair and inflateable park. Jonathan the Jester will also be entertaining you throughout the afternoon.
