There is a reason Glasgow hosts the biggest comedy festival in Europe and it is due to the atmosphere in all of these great venues. The Brunswick Hotel’s central location makes it a perfect base for the duration of the festival.

The festival returns for its 18th year between 12th – 29th March 2020 and will feature your favourite comedy friends, top television names and spectacular stand-up stars to stages across Glasgow.
