Comedy Feast
Lincoln Castle, 9–11 Jun 2017


What is Comedy Feast, exactly?

Comedy Feast takes place in Lincoln Castle and combines three of life’s greatest pleasures; eating, drinking and laughing.
Taking places on June 9th/10th/11th, Comedy Feast is jam-packed with headline comedy performances from some of the best names in British comedy, accompanied by an outstanding selection of the UK’s best pop-up restaurants; from London’s best burger joint to award-winning meat-free eateries - prepare for some mind-blowing food!
This is all accompanied by craft beer, real ales, cocktails, the Joyful Jockey gin garden, artisan coffee and live music across the weekend. The perfect summer social gathering!

Where is it?

It all takes places in the grounds of Lincoln’s stunning 11th century castle.

I want to just access The Feast, is this possible?

Yes! If comedy isn’t your thing, don’t despair, you can access the castle grounds, Feast, bars and live entertainment for only £3. Tickets for each comedy show are sold separately. Please note: you do NOT need to purchase a £3 ticket if you’ve purchased a comedy show ticket, as Feast and castle entry is included as part of all comedy show tickets.

What does a comedy show ticket entitle me to?

All comedy show tickets give you access to both the comedy show of your choice, plus the castle, The Feast, all the speciality bars, live music and entertainment.

Where are the headline comedy shows?

These shows will take place in the Comedy Feast Auditorium, in the grounds of the castle. Capacity is limited, so please purchase your ticket in advance.

Do I need to bring seating?

Nope, all seating is provided.

When should I arrive?

We’d recommend you come for the day - try lots of amazing food and drink, relax in the grounds of Lincoln Castle, then watch a comedy show from some of the UK’s finest talents. Sounds like a great day, right?

When does it open and close?

On Friday we open between 5pm and 11pm, whilst on Saturday and Sunday we open from 11am to 11pm. Please see our schedule page for precise timings.

Will there be music?

Yes, they’ll be live music and DJs across the weekend, providing a sonic backdrop for your food munching and drink sipping. This isn’t a club though, it’s music to socialise too, so expect soul, disco, funk, jazz and classic hip hop.
