What an amazing afternoon was had by all at this fabulous Bath Comedy Festival Event. Starting at the Widcombe Institute home of the Natural Theatre Company a glass of fizz got the event off to a sparkling start.

Then all aboard as all the guests were invited to board the Transport for London Routemaster for the start of the White Wine Arts Trail. On route the guests were entertained by legendary comedian Arthur Smith with his ticket machine he moved along the bus giving out tickets and causing raucous laughter. Another great comedienne was our lollipop lady who not only gave everyone a laugh she decided to river dance along the aisle of the bus. Performers came from The Natural Theatre Company and the Natural Youth Theatre who
entertained guests with their wonderful humour.

Director Nick Steel said: "This is going to be another great year! I've nothing against stadium type shows, but what makes this Festival special is its unique events and the ability to deliver the intimate experience of quality performances in small to medium sized venues."
