Leicester Roars with Laughter at Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival
Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival brought Leicester to life this February and Everards were excited to be involved once again. Everards first supported the festival back when it started in 1994. Now twenty two years on, the festival is bigger and brighter than ever and had the whole county roaring with laughter.
Everards had a strong presence at this year’s festival and supported in many ways. We released a limited edition bottle of Tiger called ‘Roar with Laughter’ which was available at Dave’s Leicester Comedy events, launched the Tiger ‘Roar with Laughter’ Fringe which saw 12 comedy nights in 9 Everards pubs and held two comedy tours at the Brewery and we welcomed comedians Arthur Smith and Lloyd Griffiths who performed stand-up routines in the brew house (a video of this can be found on Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival’s You Tube Channel).
And the icing on the cake? We were recognised with the ‘Contribution to Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival’ award at their annual ceremony. The other nominations in the category were ‘Bob Slayer and the Heroes of Comedy’, Loughborough College and Melton BID and Leicester Fridge.
Big thanks to everyone who contributed to our involvement including our licensees who held amazing sell-out events and to everyone who attended those events.
We can’t wait for the return on the festival next year, where more of our pubs will take part and bring fantastic comedians to your local!
