Warwick's open-air line-ups announced

One of the UK’s biggest open-air comedy festivals has announced its 2024 programme, set to take place in the courtyard of Warwick Castle in May.

Thirteen stars of British comedy, including Simon Amstell, Rory Bremner, and Nina Conti, will grace the stage of the second annual Comedy at the Castle event.

The inaugural edition took place in September and welcomed more than 3,000 stand-up fans. The castle also hosted smaller, socially distanced open-air gigs during the Covid pandemic.

The 2024 line-up also includes Maisie Adam, Eshaan Akbar, Stephen Bailey, Angela Barnes, Matt Bragg, Gary Delaney, Janine Harouni, Spencer Jones, Matt Richardson, and Freddy Quinne

Co-promoter Jack Brabant, director of Digbeth Dining Club, said: ‘The first year of Comedy at the Castle was a huge success, welcoming the likes of Dylan Moran, Troy Hawke and Milton Jones - to what is probably the most stunning site in the country to host live comedy. 

‘Naturally we are very excited to build on that success and bring the people of Warwick and beyond a really special weekend that everyone can enjoy.'

Tickets for Comedy at the Castle – which runs from May 24 to 26 –  are now on sale here.
