Haslemere Fringe is delighted to announce the launch of the first-ever Haslemere Comedy Festival on Sunday 9 July, from midday till late, curated by local MC and stellar professional comedian, Andy Stedman.

This truly comic event is taking place at seven popular venues in Haslemere, with many of the venues offering drinks/bars on site and money off vouchers:

  • Haslewey Community Centre (12.30-6.30pm with a BBQ lunch – 120 max)
  • Haslemere Hall (7.30-10.00pm – 350 max)
  • Dylan’s Ice Cream Parlour – Family friendly and a wide range of FREE and fantastic Children’s Entertainment! (1.00-5.00pm – 30 max)
  • ST Engineering (St. Christopher’s Green, 2.00-7.00pm – 50 max)
  • The Station House Restaurant & Bar (2.00-7.00pm – 30 max)
  • Headcase Barbers, Haslemere High Street (1.00-6.00pm – 20 max)
  • Haslemere Museum (1.00-10.00pm – 70 max)

Enjoy side-splitting humour, satirical quips, amazing comedic timing and razor sharp wit from over 35 charismatic, professional comedians – the majority of them making a pitstop in Haslemere before appearing at the famous Edinburgh Fringe – for just £12pp for the entire Festival!

Headliners include leading comedians: Mike Gunn, Andrew Ryan, Matt Richardson, Stephen Grant and Jonny Awsum (who recently appeared to great acclaim alongside Ant & Dec on Britain’s Got Talent) – to name just a few of the fiendishly funny leading stand-ups well known on the Comedy Club circuit and various TV and radio shows.

Tickets are strictly for comedy fans over 14 years old –with the exception of the free Children’s Entertainment Event at Dylan’s Ice Cream Parlour on Wey Hill – and are available from Haslemere Hall (01428 642161 or online) – or from the other six venues listed.

You then pick up your Comedy Festival wristbands, needed to gain entry to the venues, (but not the free session at Dylan’s), from the new Haslemere Hub next door to Haslemere Station on Saturday 8 July or on the Festival day itself – Sunday 9 July. This will get you into all the venues and the accompanying Comedy Festival Flyer means you can plan and choose where, when and who you want to watch throughout the Festival event.

Comedy Festival flyers will also be available in advance from Haslemere Hall, the Haslemere Hub and the other six venues.

Tickets are limited to just 500 in total for the entire event – so please plan your Comedy Festival journey around the venues in advance. Seats are on a first come, first served basis, so turn up early to enjoy 1,888 minutes of laugh-out-loud comedy on this fabulously funny day!
