There’s plenty of family entertainment too, with kids’ shows and activities taking place at the weekends.
Jesterval programming director and comedian David Hadingham said: “With each year we find ourselves putting together a programme of comedy events that just gets better and better. While it’s great to get big name TV acts, we’re also proud to be able to put on 10 days of comedy that we know is fantastic quality and that comedy fans will enjoy and remember.”
Ticket prices for the Festival range from ￡3 to ￡15, and there are also a number of free performances.
Tickets are on sale now.
