The festival takes place on Folkestone's restored Harbour Arm, inside The Goods Yard. This is a ticketed open-air event, fully seated with sheltered areas. The capacity is 630 seated.
The Goods Yard is home to 10 independent, street-food style kiosks, a large outdoor LED screen showing the major sports of the day, a programme of outdoor cinema classics, and a year round programme of events.
In addition to the comedy, the festival will feature local musicians, craft beer, cocktails, and some of the best food traders in Kent.
Folkestone is home to the UK's biggest outdoor art exhibition; it's become a foodie destination and now it's thirsty for comedy. Folkestone has been included in Lonely Planet's list of the World's Best Places to Visit in 2022.
