Clownfest: A celebration of comedy and the ridiculous

An unusual sight will greet you at Exchange Square Manchester, outside the Corn Exchange, this weekend.

Manchester’s inaugural Clownfest promises to be two days full of fun and laughter. It will feature an Omnitorium (a 100-seater vaudevillian tent) and performances from award-winning acts en route to Edinburgh Festival.

The line-up includes Bob Slayer, The Establishment - Eton Mess, The ClownFest Bestest Cabaret in the North West and Lucy Hopkins.
