Welcome to the only dedicated comedy festival in the UK aimed at children and young people! We are delighted to be back again in 2020 with our sister festival to the annual Leicester Comedy Festival.
The first UK Kids’ Comedy Festival was a huge success in February 2019 with over 30 shows, workshops and events which engaged with children, young people and their families. Activities took place at Curve, The Y, De Montfort Hall as well as community centres and schools across Leicester.
