Machynlleth Comedy Festival

Machynlleth Comedy Festival

Plas Talgarth

Running for over ten years now, Machynlleth Comedy Festival is dedicated to making its patrons laugh and have a good time, and is one of the best secret comedy festivals in the UK. Set over the early May Bank Holiday weekend, it is the ideal time to get away from busy lives and come together with family and friends in this serene area of Mid Wales. 

For three days each year, Machynlleth Comedy Festival provides both famous and burgeoning acts the platform to try new ideas and experiment. Thousands of people descend on the small market town of Machynlleth each year to see hundred of shows. The festival welcomes people of all ages, with performances aimed at multiple generations, as well as live music and theatre. 

As the weather gets warmer, it's easier to go away for the weekend. Gather your favourite people and plan your trip to Mach with Plas Talgarth Resort. After all, laughter is the best medicine and a wonderful antidote to the hectic day-to-day routine.
