Harrogate Comedy Festival

The 12th Annual Harrogate Comedy Festival ran from Mon 4 October - Sat 16 October 2021

The festival takes place every October and has become an institution for the town, putting Harrogate firmly on the comedy map as ‘Comedy Capital of the North’. 

Having started in 2009 at Harrogate Theatre with a commitment to bringing both ‘the bright stars’ and the ‘hotly tipped next big things’ to Harrogate, the festival has gone from strength to strength.

Since Harrogate Comedy Festival began, more than 70,000 people have attended achieving an average of 73% capacity over the decade. What’s more, more than 55% of that audience travelled from outside of Harrogate, equating to an increased footfall of almost 40,000 people and generating significant secondary spend in the town.

Details for our 2022 Comedy Festival will be announced in due course.
