Those of you who were lucky enough to see any of this year’s Comedy Festival shows, including the ones at The Mission Theatre, will understand why the Festival’s Director, Nick Steel (pictured with the Mayor) was looking so happy at the reception held by The Right Worshipful The Mayor of Bath, Councillor William Sandry in the Mayor’s Parlour on Wednesday 20th April.
Thanking everyone who had been involved, Nick was celebrating one of Bath’s best Comedy Festivals so far and already looking forward to 2017. The Mayor spoke generously about the contribution Nick and his team have made to the Bath cultural scene with a high-class Festival despite receiving very little funding.
Ann and Andrew Ellison (pictured with Jem Roberts and John Wood) represented The Mission Theatre and were delighted that this performing space that they created over 11 years ago has always been a Comedy Festival venue. Here’s to next year!
