The Kids Gala Preview is back!

Join us as we peel back the curtain to reveal some of the most exciting acts coming to The UK Kids' Comedy Festival in 2025!

The UK Kids’ Comedy Festival brought heaps of laughter to Leicestershire for its 6th year, and we’re so proud to be giving children and young people from across the country their first taste of the joys of comedy.

We saw thousands of families seeing shows, taking part and laughing together. We also gave hundreds of children and young people their first taste of performing comedy through our Loving Laughing, Joke Spot and Laugh Academy programmes. Most importantly though, we got to embarrass PLENTY of dads.

The festival wouldn’t be possible without the support of our acts, venues, promoters, volunteers, facilitators, partners, community groups and audiences and we continue to be so thankful for their contributions. We can’t wait to see what next year brings!

Thank you so much for continuing to support the festival and our charity Big Difference – if you are able to support us with a donation, we would be very grateful, you can donate here.
