Wells Comedy Festival

Now in its third year, the Wells Comedy Festival in association with Brothers is back, bigger and better, for 2017.

Over the bank holiday weekend of May 26-28 England’s smallest city plays host to a ‘weekend-long stand-up jamboree’ (The Guardian), with over 35 different comedy shows taking place at four venues in Wells, Somerset.

Brothers sponsor Wells Comedy Festival

Comics performing at the three-day fest include Bafta-winning BBC star Stewart Lee, ‘Mock the Week’s surreal one-liner merchant Milton Jones, TV regular Joe Lycett, Edinburgh Comedy Award-winners Bridget Christie, John Kearns and Adam Riches, stand-up and author Sara Pascoe, and four-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee James Acaster performing his ‘Trelogy’ or shows: Recognise, Represent and Reset.

What's more, Brothers will be taking over the bar in the Little Theatre for the entire weekend starting with the Opening Gala on Friday 26th May. A range of our #DeciderlyDifferent fruit flavoured ciders will be on sale.
