Greenwich Comedy Festival returns this winter
The Greenwich Comedy Festival is returning to the town in November.
Previously run at the Old Royal Naval College, it will now be performed at a variety of venues including Greenwich Theatre and Up The Creek Comedy Club.
The return, backed by Greenwich Council, ends a disappointing year for organisers.
After the Old Royal Naval College tried to reduce the size of its annual summer event, it decided to move to Brick Lane.
However, that was cancelled due to opposition from residents.
Now the comedy festival is returning and will run on November 2 and 3.
As well as top comedians, a host of free activities and fringe shows will be take place.
Councillor Peter Kotz, Royal Borough of Greenwich's cabinet member for cultural and creative industries said: "Greenwich Comedy Festival is a key part of the hugely popular Royal Greenwich Festivals and has brought the very best in top class new and established performers to the Royal Borough in recent years.
"This year's event will provide entertainment for adults and children alike during the half term holidays, and with a number of free events, we want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to experience top quality comedy entertainment."
Previous stars performing at the festival have included Reginald D Hunter, Ed Byrne and Al Murray.
Comedy Festival Organiser, Cass Briggs said: "We are delighted to be back in Royal Greenwich. We've got some great shows planned for this year and are already looking forward to carrying the name of the festival onwards in 2014."
Full line-up will be announced in due course.
