... and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
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).
Media, Sponsorship and enquiries about taking part, please read
the notes below before you email us...
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.
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.
- sorry, we do not have any budget for advertising or advertorial.
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!).
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.
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...
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.
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...
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.
