Comedy at the Castle, is presented by Midlands-based comedy promoters CLOSEUP COMEDY, Digbeth Dining Club and Warwick Castle, which will also include street food and bars.

Jack Brabant, director of Digbeth Dining Club, said: "The first year of Comedy at the Castle was a huge success, welcoming the likes of Dylan Moran, Troy Hawke and Milton Jones - to what is probably the most stunning site in the country to host live comedy.

“Naturally we are very excited to build on that success and bring the people of Warwick and beyond a really special weekend that everyone can enjoy.

"With each evening we’ve tried to curate the line-up as carefully as possible - so that everyone’s tastes in comedy, food and drinks are covered."
