You can email the Birmingham Comedy Festival at:

... and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

NOTE: We strongly recommend that you give the email a meaningful title as the Subject/ Title to prevent spam-filtering (for example: 'Comedy Festival question', or similar).

For Media, Sponsorship and enquiries about taking part, please read the notes below before you email us...

.Media Enquiries

For all press, radio, TV and digital/ online media queries regarding the festival please email us at the above email address.

In the Subject header of your email, please put "MEDIA ENQUIRY" and the name of your organisation/ publication.

Press releases, listings information and hi-res images are available upon request. Interviews with key acts are also available. Due to the nature of the festival, festival-wide all-access media passes are not available.

We are a voluntary-run organisation, so please do be patient - we will endeavor to get back to you as soon as we can. If your query is urgent and regards an event or act at a particular venue, you may also wish to contact the venue directly.

Re: Advertising - sorry, we do not have any budget for advertising or advertorial.

.Sponsorship, Advertising and Partners

The Birmingham Comedy Festival has consistently attracted big names, big audiences and big media coverage!

A variety of support and sponsorship packages may be available for both the festival as a whole and individual events or stands. If you're interested, drop us a line with "SPONSORSHIP" as your email Subject.

.Taking Part: Acts, Venues and Organisations

We are always happy to hear from agents, acts, groups, venues and other parties interested in taking part in the festival - particularly within Birmingham - but do be aware, if you live in some far flung corner of the world and we haven't heard of you, we're unlikely to agree to pay your air fare and put you up in a hotel for the duration of the festival (yes - you know who you are!).

The festival traditionally takes place every October and we begin working on the next festival around Easter, with a view to confirming the bulk of programming by July... so drop us a line around May/June.

Events need not be stand-up comedy - in the past we've included spoken word, poetry, dance, rock and classical music, film, visual art, street performance, workshops, book signings, photography...

Please note that we do get a lot of acts, venues and groups contacting us, and we are not always able to respond to everyone, but feel free to follow up your initial email.

Open Mic spots: just send us a few brief details (name, a few venues you've appeared at, contact details, website), and we'll add you to the (long) list of people looking for spots. Slots do fill up very quickly, so we can't promise anything...

Volunteers/ Interns/ Work Experience: At present we don't have a permanent HQ/ office and don't work to set hours, soI'm afraid we are not able to take on interns or manage structured work experience programmes ... sorry. However, some of the organisations we work directly with can, and do, so by all means drop us a line and we'll pass your details on.
