We’re not far into 2017 but already the Bristol Slapstick Festival 2018 dates have been released.
The annual festival, which has been held in the city every year since 2005, will run from January 26th-28th 2018.
A celebration of some of the finest silent films ever made, largely from the heyday of silent cinema (1895-1930), the festival offers the chance to see some extraordinary films in unique circumstances.
The films are accompanied by live scores by world class musicians and introduced by some true comedy legends.
The Bristol Slapstick Festival also champions more recent and contemporary comedy film and work from neglected comedy artists.
There will be plenty more news to come between now and the 2018 festival, so keep an eye on the festival’s website for more details.
