Celebrating its 18th year and now back in Bristol’s best venues, the annual Slapstick Festival offers a chance to see some essential comedies from cinema’s silent era, specially selected from archives across the world and paired with live musical accompaniment.
Kicking off in January 2022, the festival features a packed programme which, amongst other treats, includes a celebration of pioneering women in comedy with guest hosts such as actors Sally Phillips and Ronni Ancona, stand up comedian Lucy Porter and writer Sian Norris.
Slapstick 2022 takes place across three venues; Watershed, St George’s Bristol and Bristol Cathedral. You can view the programme at slapstick.org.uk.
