Directions and Info
Cambridge Comedy Festival is held on Jesus Green. The green lies just to the north of the city centre and in walking distance of the main bus station and a short bus ride from the train station. There is no postcode for the festival site – the Fort St George pub (postcode CB4 1HA) is opposite the festival site on Mid Summer Common.
Please note the festival site is a licensed arena and only ticket holders will be permitted access to the site. Also as the site is licensed customers are not allowed to bring in their own alcohol. We have the Charlie Wells beer tent which will be stocked with a selection of their finest beers. Plus food will be available from our Street Food caterers.
Site opening times
Wed 19th – Fri 21st gates open at 6pm. Curfew 11pm
Sat 22nd – Sun 23rd gates open 12 midday. Curfew 11pm
The outdoor nature of the green means that not all surfaces are level, but disabled access is readily available. All our marquees entrance doors do not have ridges to negotiate.
Assistance dogs are most welcome, and pass-outs from the site are available to allow your dog to answer the call of nature.
If you would like assistance at any point please ask a member of the stewarding team (distinguished by their bright yellow high viz clothing).
