Josh Widdicombe: Bit Much... 

Join the twice BAFTA-nominated host and comedian on Wednesday 7 April 2021 at the Bath Forum.


Now a household name as co-host of Channel 4's The Last Leg, Josh Widdicombe rose to fame from humble beginnings. Although born in London, the comedian was raised in the small hamlet of Haytor Vale, attending primary school with just three other pupils. After a self-described uneventful time at school, Widdicombe headed to Manchester for university, studying linguistics and landing himself a job at The Guardian. After returning to London and delving into comedy on a whim, Widdicombe entered the Amused Moose comedy course and quickly reached the semi-final of the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year 2008.

Sandi Toksvig is taking her hilarious smash-hit one-woman National Trevor show back on the road. She will be performing at the Bath Forum on Wednesday 28 April 2021!

Expect tall stories, fascinatingly funny facts, really silly jokes, a quick fire Q&A and a quiz. Don’t expect tap-dancing, leotards or a forward roll.

Jason Manford is coming to the Bath Forum on Wednesday 26 January 2022. It's sure to be ‘expert observational comedy’ (The Guardian) mixed with ‘comic gold’ (Mail on Sunday).


Jason said: “After the fun we had on my last tour ‘Muddle Class’, I’m excited to get back on the road with my new stand up show, ‘Like Me’. In these trying times it’s always important to be able to get away for a couple of hours and exercise the old chuckle muscle! So I’m coming to a venue near you in 2021 so we can have a good laugh together. See you then.”
