The festival’s comedy club will be compered by Chris Brooker. He will be joined by Stephen Carlin’s deadpan wit, Keith Carter’s character comedy, Vince Atta and his multi-track looper creating on-the-spot comic pieces, and Gordon Southern, who headlines following huge success on the international comedy circuit.

The music line-up includes the Paprika Blues Band, Custard Connection, the Follicles, Vorsprung Durch Oompah, Dirty Rockin’ Scoundrels and Bouncing Betty.
