How to book tickets
There is so much happening at Funny Things, that you could attend lots of events in one day. We have given you approximate finish times to help you plan your festival visit, and addresses for all of the venues are below. Please note some of the venues are just outside the city centre (approximately 10-15 min walk) and others are further afield and will require a car journey or public transport. Please check venue addresses before booking your tickets to make sure you can get between events in time.
