Bristol Comedy History Walk – Free Theatre Tour Booking Now

This summer’s hottest ticket looks to be the Bristol Comedy History Walk, a unique free event with tickets being snapped up fast.

The theatre tour follows two squabbling tour guides – Dr Fausty and Freya – who have both mistakenly been booked to lead two very different tours.

Described as a ‘quirky look at the hidden histories of Bristol’ this event will be delivered through improvised and participative theatre.

The Bristol Comedy History Walk has been written and produced by Angie Belcher in partnership with Bristol Improv Theatre. It’s been funded by Bristol City Council and the West of England Combined Authority’s Love Our High Street project.

Working with director Ed Viney, the creatives have pooled their love of inspiring and entertaining audiences through improvisation and comedy with some of Bristol’s fascinating hidden histories.

Each tour will be led by two actors with Dave Lovatt, Steve Huggins, Pip Cook, Nik Howden and Charlie Bevis making up the alternating cast.

The tour last 1.5 hours, starting from The Nails on Corn Street and covering mostly flat areas until it finishes at The New Rooms cafe.

Dates run through May, June, July and August 2023.

Tickets are free but there is the option to donate £5 towards a ticket, with proceeds from these going towards community workshops relating to the project or donated to St Mungo’s Homeless Charity.
