“We’re really looking forward to getting back to Queen Square, we had such a great time last July. The comedians, audience (and weather) were all amazing. With this year’s superb line up we’ll be hoping to firmly establish the Comedy Garden as the South West’s biggest comedy festival!” Cass Briggs, Festival Producer

"We're delighted to be sponsoring the Magners Bristol Comedy Garden.  With a stellar line-up of heavyweight comedians dishing out cheeky one liners and laughs galore, we couldn't think of a better place to share a Magners Original, Berry or Pear with a group of friends.   The good people of Bristol are renowned for having a good time so why not do something spontaneous today and snap up your tickets for the South West's biggest comedy festival."  Paul Condron, Marketing Director, Magners GB
