Tickets are now on sale for Shrewsbury International Comedy Festival’s flagship Gala Show at the town’s Theatre Severn this summer. 

The show takes place on Sunday 17 July and rounds off the 2022 edition of the festival (which starts on Thursday the 14th). 

This year’s event will feature, among others, Britain’s Got Talent 2020 finalist Steve Royle, Midlands comedian Gary Delaney (pictured) and musical comedy sisters Flo & Joan.

Commenting on the event, which returns following a two-year absence due to Covid, festival director Kevin Bland said: “We are delighted to be back and determined to repay the support we’ve always enjoyed from the public, with a cracking show. We hope the town will come out again and help us to deliver a summer of fun next year. The first set of acts, which we are now delighted to announce for the star-studded Gala Show, will make audiences seem like they’re watching a whole series of Live At The Apollo in one night. 

Tickets for the SICF Gala Show on 17 July are £33.50 and available here.

More acts and further programming details will be announced early in 2022.
