"A day without laughter is a day wasted" - Charlie Chaplin

Jesterval, The North East's Premier Comedy Festival, will return in 2016! For the fourth year running it will be staged at one of the most iconic locations in the North East: Baltic Square at Gateshead Quays. Once again they are committed to making the Festival a cultural extravaganza which locals can be proud of, attracting a diverse range of quality acts to the region while making shows affordable and accessible to all.

They have designed a line up for the comedy connoisseur, and the 2016 Festival will feature some of the finest comedians working in the UK today. From household names to hotly-tipped acts alongside the best local talent, don't miss this opportunity to see the acts up close and personal at a very affordable price, as there's a chance you'll be paying a lot more for a ticket to see them in the not too distant future.

Jesterval isn't only for grown-ups! They have something for all the family, so get down to Gateshead Quays during the morning and afternoon on Saturday and Sunday before booking that babysitter for later!
