This year the Primadonna Festival is back and Funny Women are delighted to be partnering with this exciting, welcoming festival of great writing of all kinds, celebrating women and voices from the margins. This weekend (30th July – 1st August) come and join us for famous and emerging names from across the arts, fabulous entertainment, performances, panels and films, live music and comedy, delicious food and drink, beautiful surroundings, and lots for kids too!
We are proud to showcase our 2020 Funny Women Awards winner Izzy Askwith, runner up Mary O’Connell and finalist Ania Magliano on Saturday 31st July as part of the Sixty-Minute Stand-Up show hosted by “National Trevor” Sandi Toksvig!
