Joke Spot

The Joke Spot is an open access initiative in public spaces and community hubs. In this pop-up activity which tours Leicestershire during the festival, our host invites participants to get on stage and tell their own jokes into a microphone for their parents and passers-by to enjoy. This project encourages reading comprehension and teaches performance skills, it is a rare opportunity for parents to see their children on stage.

In 2024 we…

  • visited 11 locations
  • told over 1000 jokes
  • worked with over 400 children

“It’s the most I’ve ever seen my son read!” – parent of participant
