They're Funny in Falkirk...

...and we're a barrel of laughs in Bo'ness! Please excuse the bad pun, but in case you haven't noticed, there's a brand new comedy festival on our doorstep.

Featuring two weeks worth of the best Scottish and International talent, the new 'Funny in Falkirk' festival takes place from 23rd July to 3rd August this year across a whole variety of great venues in the district. Tickets are available online and via the ticket telephone hotline, but if you'd rather pick up yours when you're out doing your weekly shop then pop in to visit us - we're selling tickets for the two fantastic Bo'ness stand up events right here! So all you need to do is decide which event you fancy and get ready to laugh your socks off. Easy peasy!

First up, on Saturday 31st July is an evening with some of the best comics on the Scottish circuit today. The 'Best of Scottish Comedy' event, features compere Jojo Sutherland along with Bruce Fummey, Billy Kirkwood and Bruce Morton. Tickets for this show are priced at £8 (£7 concs).

Then, once you've recovered from that, on Sunday 1st August is the 'Sunday Night Stand Up' event featuring compere Bruce Devlin joined by Raymond Mearns, Anthony Murray and Lucy Oldham. Tickets for this show are priced at £7 (£6 concs). Both events are being held in Bo'ness Town Hall, and both start at 8pm.

Throughout the two weeks of the festival there are events being held in Grangemouth, Denny, and Stenhousemuir, as well as those in Bo'ness and Falkirk. There are even kids comedy films showing at the Hippodrome during the festival, so there's sure to be something for everyone! Pop in and get your tickets today!
