Machynlleth Comedy Festival, 29th April – 1st May

Fancy a weekend in the heart of Wales that glistens with a whole bunch of stand up comedy? Then this is the festival for you. Welcoming it into it’s fourth year, this year is set to be bigger and better. The organisers originally set up the festival  to “create somewhere where people came to have fun, and get away from it all”  The festival even has a campsite where you can either hire out a Yurt or pitch your own tent or caravan! Here is or guide to some of the shows you have to go and see if you are going to go along to the festival.
