Slapstick Festival 2017

Slapstick 2017 (18-22 January) was our biggest ever festival with more events staged – and more guests attending – than at any previous edition. By all accounts, it was also our most successful festival ever – something our festival director, Chris Daniels, reflected on in a post you can read in full here, which also touches on the future direction of the festival.

Elsewhere on the site, you can find a selection of photos from Slapstick 2017 by our team of photographers, plus a ‘tribute’ to Donald Trump by Ronnie  Golden and Neil Innes (other video highlights from the festival can be found on our YouTube channel). Finally, if you want a trip down memory lane we’ve listed a few reviews of the festival by various media bodies on a blog which can be found here.

Meanwhile, our thoughts are slowly turning towards Slapstick 2018 which we’ll endeavour to, once again, make our best Slapstick ever!
