Pole Arnold has recently become a Business Partner with Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival and we will be encouraging our friends to join us at a number of the events taking place between 7th and 23rd February.
The Leicester Comedy Festival started in 1994 with 40 events programmed into 23 venues over 7 days throughout Leicestershire. In 1994 it attracted an audience of 5,000 and enjoyed a modest amount of media attention. By 2013 the Festival boasted an enormous 530 events which took place in around 50 venues across the city and county.
Appearances from the likes of Jo Brand, Paul Merton, Alan Davies, Jimmy Carr, Russell Brand, Simon Pegg and Harry Hill have helped The Guardian newspaper credit the Leicester Comedy Festival as one of the top 5 comedy festivals in the world.
