Comedy festival returns to Harborough for 2021

Harborough District Council is delighted to announce that the Leicester Comedy Festival BIG Weekend is returning to the Harborough District in February 2021, albeit with a slightly different feel to previous years due to the impact of Covid-19.

Whilst the last two years have seen acts performing in venues across the district, Government restrictions may mean that the 2021 event sees fewer live acts, and more online activities and community engagement.

The Council is encouraging anyone who wishes to take part in the festival to get in touch, whether they are a business, a venue, a community group, an amateur comedian, schools, and older people’s homes.

The Leicester Comedy Festival will take place from Wednesday 3 February – Sunday 21 February 2021, with the BIG Weekend expanding throughout the course of the whole Festival.

Anyone wishing to get involved, or requiring further information, should contact Sairah Butt by emailing
