Bush Fest is the annual festival that you should know about. There’s nothing that says grass roots comedy more than a cult comedy venue in a tiny pub in a little backwater in the midlands.
If any of the above sounds like a back-handed compliment, then re-read it. This venue is where comedy comes to be born. A supportive audience and landlord, low stakes, high spirits and the chance of being heckled by a technical failure, the furniture falling apart, or the Tesco delivery van.
Here’s a short video from this year’s event. Enjoy.
