Banfest's Opening Night of Comedy

Friday 3rd Sept


Be sure to book early this year as we anticipate a sell out show.

A fabulous evening of comedy kicks off Banfest's spectacular three day festival.

At 5.30pm on Friday the 3rd September the first people will enter our large festival marquee ready for an evening of hilarious comedy.  

The Beer Festival Bar and Gin / Wine Bar will be offering a fabulous selection of drinks to get the evening started.  There will also be a selection of food stalls and street food to purchase to make it a complete evening.


The comedy will commence at 7.30pm when the legendary Phil Dinsdale brings his Gagging For Laughs set to the Banfest Stage.


Phil will be compere for the evening, introducing 3 great comedy acts who will entertain the audience.

This was the lineup in 2019... We are working hard to secure an even better lineup for 2021.

Shortly to be announced will be 3 great comedy acts, sure to get the crowd roaring with laughter.

Admission is by ticket only from 5.30pm (when the bars and food stalls open) with the show commencing around 7.30pm.  

There will be drinks breaks throughout the evening to revisit the bars and replenish your refreshments.

This is an adult only event due to the content of the comedic material, so no under 18's will be allowed within the marquee.  



After 2019's successful and hilarious Comedy Night, 2021 is going to be bigger and better.
