Something very exciting is coming to Lincoln… A brand new 3 day festival of food, drink and the best in British comedy, all in the stunning grounds of Lincoln Castle.

Bill Bailey(SOLD OUT), Russell Kane(SOLD OUT) and David O’Doherty headline, alongside rising stars, including Phil Wang, Louisa Omielan and Ivo Graham. Sunday will also play host to the BBC’s award-winning Horrible Histories Live.

The mouth-watering food line-up includes London’s best burger joint Honest Burgers, Taiwanese sensation Le Bao, the award-winning Crabbieshack and many more. All complimented by a host of bars serving craft beer, real ale, cocktails and wine, plus live music and entertainment all weekend long.

Comedy Feast is a unique new festival that joyfully fuses three of life’s greatest pleasures - laughing, drinking and amazing food! Getting the summer off to a belly-splitting start, Comedy Feast invites fun-seekers of all ages to eat, drink and enjoy live music and entertainment in the stunning surroundings of Lincoln’s 11th century castle, before laughing yourself senseless with of some of the best names in British comedy. What could possibly be better?

Bill Bailey is, quite frankly, a comedy legend. From sold-out stadium tours, such as Bewilderness and Tinselworm, to TV appearances on shows like 8 Out of 10 Cats, QI and Have I Got News For You; Bill is an unstoppable force and sure to be a standout performance at Comedy Feast 2017. 

Russell Kane has garnered an army of fans thanks to his outspoken performances. Whether he’s raising the roof at the Hammersmith Apollo, winning ALL the awards at Edinburgh Fringe Festival or breaking the internet with his hilarious outpourings on social media - Russell is a truly modern talent.  

From his award winning shows at the world famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival to regular appearances on 8 Out of 10 Cats, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and QI; David O’Doherty’s unmistakable brand of humour, combined with a musical ability he describes as ‘failed Jazz’, makes him an unmissable addition to the Comedy Feast line-up. He’ll join the likes of rapper-turned-comedian Doc Brown, the exceptionally hilarious Phil Wang, the women behind What Would Beyonce Do? Louisa Omielan, and red-hot rising starts such as Ivo Graham, Tom Lucy and Kiri Pritchard-Mclean. 

But that’s just half of it… The weekend will play host to some of the most celebrated names in modern streetfood, covering an array of tastes, flavours and cuisines. 

Honest Burgers, widely considered to be London’s best burger joint, will be heading into the hallowed castle courtyard. Using prime British produce, their ever-evolving burger menu and rosemary fries are the stuff of legend. 

Oli Baba’s will also be in attendance. These meat-free gurus caused foodie riots at London’s finest food markets with their infamous halloumi fries. With a menu that includes authentic fattoush, toasted pita sandwiches and a Middle Eastern salsa known as ’Schug’, it’s quite literally a holiday for your taste buds! 

Many of the pop-up restaurants at Comedy Feast have won awards for their incredible food, and The Crabbieshack is no exception. Their soft shell crab burgers, dressed with harissa, avocado and fennel are so sensational they scooped the top prize at the London Streetfood Awards. Feeling hungry yet?

Further mouth-melting deliciousness will come from the likes of Taiwanese steamed bun specialist Le Bao, Hot Dog extraordinaires Diamond Dogz, Vietnamese street-food sensation Hanoi Kitchen, Italy-meets-Lincolnshire culinary concept The Piadina Project, next-level BBQ from London’s mighty BBQ Dreamz and so much more. 

Add to this a range of bars serving craft beer, real ales, cocktails and wine, plus entertainment and live music all weekend, and Comedy Feast looks set to be one of the highlights of summer 2017. 

Come hungry, leave happy…
