About Award-winning Grinstock Comedy and their shows at the Festival –

This is our 3rd year working with the award-winning Sussex-based Grinstock Comedy Club. We can’t wait to welcome back their brilliantly funny, live comedy shows. So much so we have invited them to the festival for two nights on Friday the 31st of May and Thursday the 8th of August. They’re bringing two amazing line-ups packed full of TV & national touring comedians to both nights. Check out the two different line-ups they have planned, they’re truly outstanding, and we’re sure you will want to come along to both.

Grinstock Comedy Club work with some of the biggest names in live stand-up in the UK. They have provided award-winning comedy shows for 15 years across the South East and nationally.

Having seen their line-ups and the crowds they pull in, it’s no wonder they are the South East’s longest-running comedy club provider and have been twice nominated, two years running, for comedy club of the South by national media brands DAVE TV & Absolute Radio. Famed for bringing the first drive-in live comedy shows to the UK with two headline shows in one day from Tim Vine & Ed Byrnes, this company are ever inventive.
