Opening Night Cabaret with Mik Artistik's Ego Trip, Nick Page, Taylor Glenn, Emily Rose & Dave Williams MC
The Comedy Festival launches with a fantastic comedy and music cabaret.
Mik Artistik's Ego Trip - so popular last year we just had to have them back! A captivating spell woven from comedy, song, poetry, story telling, rock music, folk and funk with moments of unutterable human beauty thrown in...
Nick Page headlines comedy clubs across the country and has worked extensively abroad. He has a great story-telling style, always at one with his audience and highly engaging, without resorting to hackery and old jokes or being pointlessly sweary.
