A Sleepover with some comedians…

By Anna Wiseman, Project Director, Cultural Destinations

Halifax Comedy Festival is shaping up to be the perfect way to brighten up a gloomy Yorkshire October. I usually start getting depressed just thinking about the shorter days and big grey clouds but thankfully this year I have Halifax Comedy Festival to look forward to!

With James Acaster (Friday 28 October), Romesh Ranganathan (Saturday 22 October), The Noise Next Door (Thursday 27 October) and John Robertson’s The Dark Room (Wednesday 26 October) all my comedy bases are covered and I know it’ll be a brighter month.

To top it off, not only can I giggle my way through October evenings, I can stay over for an unbelievably good price.




The wonderful folks at Halifax Comedy Festival have partnered with Holdsworth House
and The Imperial Crown Hotel for special laugh and stay deals.
