Back for 2020 with a new twist

Over five days, the likes of Dylan Moran, Sara Pascoe, Bill Bailey, Aisling Bea, Dara O’Briain, Nina Conti, Alan Davies and Reginald D Hunter will take to the domed stage, with LED screens on either side.

Please note that there are two shows on both Saturday and Sunday. The first four performers listed will appear in the early show and the latter four in the later show. Tickets are only valid for a single show. Please check you are purchasing tickets for the correct show. The full line-up is as follows:
