Booking tickets for Slapstick Festival is a simple process.
You can either :
Book all screenings and events directly with the venue by phone/online – details below
Or buy a
Slapstick Festival Pass
We do offer a limited number of passes to people who wish to attend every event during the four days. The pass (which is a collection of tickets for every event throughout the festival*) offers a huge saving on the regular price of tickets. If you purchase tickets from the Colston Hall Box Office in person with cash or a cheque no booking charge is incurred.
The festival pass provides tickets to every event throughout the festival including the Slapstick Gala for £130.00 (for 15 events). The Slapstick festival pass is only available from the Colston Hall box office only and subject to a 8% booking charge.
For those who have already snapped up their Gala tickets, please call the box office on 0117 9223686 for a discount.
*Passes do NOT include tickets to the Bristol Old Vic Steptoe & Son show (24th Jan) which needs to be booked independently.
Pass holders will be able to choose between a pass including the Silent Comedy Gala with Victoria Wood (25th Jan) or for those who have previously purchased this
ticket excluding the gala.
