We all know that Edinburgh Festival is a phenomenal cultural event. As the world's largest arts festival, each year it brings together thousands of performers and millions of spectators to celebrate all things creative: theatre, comedy, dance, circus, cabaret, children's shows, physical theatre, musicals, opera, music, spoken word, exhibitions and events of all shapes and sizes.  

The Bristol Double Deckers Showcase 

A major part of the festival, though, and one that many people are unaware of, is the sheer amount of preparation, planning and rehearsal that goes into the festival. This year, one such example of this is taking place right here, in our own beloved Bristol. Throughout July, the legendary Comedy Box team will be hosting a series of double-billed comedy shows, over at the Hen & Chicken Studio in Bedminster. Each double bill will feature two top UK comedy acts, as they preview their brand new shows ahead of the Edinburgh Festival in August. This is an incredible opportunity to see some electric new material from the hottest acts from around the UK – and all for an astonishingly good price. Have a scroll through the lineup below, and get your tickets to the Double Deckers Showcase while you can!
