Day tickets have been made available to buy for this year’s Levity Festival in Peterborough.
The 3-day spectacular – the UK’s only three-day outdoor festival dedicated to comedy – takes place on Peterborough’s Embankment from July 19 – 21.
Many comic stars of TV are due to appear at Levity Festival including the three headliners Al Murray, Lee Nelson and Omid Djalili. The breakdown of acts for each day will include:
Friday: Al Murray; James Cook; Ray Peacock; Alun Cochrane; Stephen K Amos; Jason Cook; Maeve Higgins; Mitch Benn; Mark Smith; Tommy Rowson; Jarlath Regan; Brendon Burns
Saturday: Lee Nelson; Sean Hughes; Craig Campbell; Lucy Beaumont; Piff the Magic Dragon; Richard Herring; Dominic Holland; The Horne Section; Isy Suttie: Hayley Ellis
Sunday: Omid Djalili; Ed Gamble; Andy Zaltzman; Paul Foot; Chris Ramsey; Roisin Conaty; Paul McCaffrey; Carl Donnelly; Naz Osmanoglu; Phil Wang; Carl Hutchinson.
Mark Ringer, who’s organising the Levity Festival alongside Stef Malajny and Tony Scibelli, said: “We have been inundated with requests for day tickets. Even though lots of people want to come for the weekend we understand some may only be able to make one or two of the days.
“So, alongside the great value weekend general admission tickets which are just £40, we now have day tickets on sale for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Day tickets will cost £25 for adults and £10 for children aged 12-16, under 12’s go free.”
There’ll be plenty of entertainment for children and families. Comedic themed bands, circus acts, magicians, poets and actors will be present as well as a comedy corner run by Ed Petrie (CBBC) and friends.
The Levity Festival is licensed for 20,000 people. Camping will be available very close to the main festival arena at Potters Way. Camping is limited and available on a first come first served basis.

The festival also wants to host an attempt at breaking the world record for the number of people involved in a custard pie fight on the Sunday.
