Celebrating its 15th year, Bristol’s annual Slapstick Festival offers a chance to see some truly essential comedies from cinema’s silent era selected from archives across the world and accompanied by world class musical musicians.
As well as events at Watershed, the festival takes place at venues around the city centre including Bristol Hippodrome, Bristol Cathedral and Bristol Old Vic. You can view the full programme at slapstick.org.uk.
