Tickets are on sale now.

Yorkshire-based events promoters Futuresound, in collaboration with Leeds Comedy Festival, have announced The Kirkstall Abbey Comedy Festival.

The one-day festival will take place within the grounds of the iconic Kirkstall Abbey on Sunday 28 July 2024.

The first large-scale open-air comedy festival to happen in Leeds, The Kirkstall Abbey Comedy Festival is a 4,500 capacity event bringing an array of the county’s very best and brightest comics to a truly unique Yorkshire venue. 

The line-up includes award-winning Canadian comedian and presenter, Katherine Ryan, as headliner as well as surrealist stand up legend Ross Noble.

Joining them are the likes of the hilarious Yorkshire comic Maisie Adam, US comedian Reginald D. Hunter, spooky live sensation Clinton Baptiste, writer and comedian Mike Wozniak and the self-deprecating, Eton-educated stand up Ivo Graham.

Completing the line-up are comedy rising star Stephen Bailey and the cult-stand up hero turned viral-sensation Jeff Innocent.

The festival is the result of exciting collaboration between Futuresound and Leeds Comedy Festival.

Futuresound are the team behind Live at Leeds, Slam Dunk Festival and Ed Sheeran’s unforgettable concert at Roundhay Park.

Andy Smith, Director – Futuresound Group said: “We’re so excited to be working with House of Fun and Leeds Comedy Festival to bring this amazing bill to the iconic Kirkstall Abbey. We are always looking for ways to bring new and exciting events to Leeds so when the possibility of collaborating with the city’s most respected comedy promoters came up we jumped at the chance.

“With some of the biggest names in comedy on-board this is shaping up to be a brilliant day with some household names, exciting new voices and lots more to close out our weekend at the Abbey.”

A special postcode pre-sale will take place today with general sale opening two days later on Wednesday 28 February.
