Announcing the launch of Crieff Comedy Festival

As part of our ongoing activities to raise the profile of Crieff and increase footfall, we are proud to announce the creation of the Crieff Comedy Festival – Before the Fringe. It will run from Thursday 26th July to Saturday 28th July and includes more than 60 comedians over 4 venues who will be previewing their Edinburgh Fringe acts.

There will be an event in James Square on Saturday 5th May starting at 12.00pm, as part of our launch activities. Polish up your one liners as we’ll be filming Crieff folk telling their favourite jokes – remember to keep them clean please!

This year the comedy festival venues include the Crieff Golf Club, Morrison’s Academy Hall, The Tower and The Square Bar with plans to develop and expand the festival year on year. There will be something for everybody including a Kids Comedy Festival.

Full details can be found on our new website – www.beforethefringe.com – with further news on our FB page – Crieff Comedy Festival.

Helping to create a summer of comedy in Crieff, The Meadow Inn will be hosting a series of 4 cabaret and comedy shows starting on the 15th June.
