The UK-based Slapstick festival of silent, classic and visual screen comedy is responding to Covid-19 uncertainties by picking a new slot and fresh format for its 17th annual edition.
Instead of running in Bristol venues in January, Slapstick 2021 will take place from March 1 to 7, offering a live streaming programme which can be accessed as it happens, re-watched later or caught on catch-up from anywhere in the world and featuring more international guests than ever before, among them direct descendants of two of the 20th century’s best known comedy film stars.
The full programme will be unveiled in January when tickets for individual events go on sale, but for now this is an exclusive opportunity to book your place early.
Passes for the full 20+ event programme are on sale via www.slapstick.org.uk
£39 over 24s
£20 for under 24s
Tickets for individual events will be on sale from early January.
Slapstick Live Online is being made possible by sponsorship from Aardman Animations; grants from the BFI (British Film Institute) funded by the National Lottery; Bristol City Council’s coronavirus business support scheme and the European Regional Development Fund, and the public’s target-busting donations to the festival’s crowdfunding campaign.
