    Festival Starts


“It’s a privilege to work with a festival that champions, supports and promotes women in comedy and I’m proud that the only city in Europe doing this is my hometown of Manchester. Greater Manchester has always been a great region for discovering new comedy, especially women such as the sadly missed Victoria Wood and Caroline Aherne. With recent new pledges such as ITV’s 50/50 gender split writing initiative it’s more important than ever that there is the platform to allow these women to be seen, heard and discovered.”
