We are pleased to announce we will be supporting the upcoming Southport Comedy festival taking place in October.
Taking place on victoria park – headlined by top comedians including Jason Manford, Ed Byrne, Russell Kane, Rich Hall and Reginald D Hunter.
The event, in association with Anthony James Estate Agents, will take place at Victoria Park, the home of Southport Flower Show, between October 8 and 18.
Southport Comedy Festival Director Brendan Riley said:
“After the last few months of the coronavirus pandemic, we all need some laughs, we all need a bit of normality to return!
“All of Southport’s other major events this year, such as the Flower Show, the Air Show and the Food and Drink Festival, sadly had to be cancelled because of the Covid epidemic.
“But we really wanted people to be able to enjoy the Southport Comedy Festival this year and, thanks to a number of Southport businesses getting together, we are making this happen. It has all come together very quickly.”
Mark Dilley, owner of Elite Marquees, said:
“I am looking forward to joining forces with Brendan and hosting this year’s Southport Comedy Festival.
“The line-up looks amazing and this is just what Southport needs.
“Elite will be providing the Festival with a 300-person socially distanced capacity marquee for the 10-day event and there will be a pre-event show bar area for guests to grab a drink before each show.
“Lots of work is being done to ensure the event is Covid safe
