The Gala Weekend comprises four events across three days (Friday 12th to Sunday 14th June) and is centred around Penistone Showground.

Friday 12th June – evening Toby Foster hosts “Comedy in a Tent” from 7.30pm in the marquee on the showground.  Tickets are £12 in advance.

This year’s acts include:

  • BARRY DODDS – Self-confessed comedy geek, Barry took to the comedy stage at the tender age of 21 and soon had audiences eating out of the palm of his hand. Using his own combination of irrepressibly cheeky and surprisingly dark material, he quickly found himself taking the national comedy circuit by storm.
  • NINA GILLIGAN – Liverpool Hotwater Comedian of the Year 2014 – Sometimes outrageous, always hilarious, observational and story-telling comedy for all. A persona you will fall in love with.
  • WES ZAHARUK – Wes Zaharuk is The Prop Man. He is a one-man tour de force, known to combine routines with powertools, bananas and film noir. You could call him plain daft, others have compared him to Tommy Cooper on acid
