The Southport Comedy Festival is delighted to announce that Halliwell Jones BMW will be the associate sponsor for this year’s festival.

Now in its 11th year this exciting event brings some of the best stand-up comedians from the world of comedy.

Taking place from the 30th September – 16th October this year’s line-up will be jam-packed with a host of festival favourites and household names from the world of comedy.

These include Ed Byrne, Reginald D Hunter, Al Murray and many more.

Director Brendan Riley said: “Southport Comedy Festival is delighted to partner with Halliwell Jones BMW as our main associate Sponsor for 2022. 

“The support of all of our sponsors, large and small, is vital to keeping live events and the arts alive in our area.” 

The entire festival will be staged once again in a giant luxury heated and seated marquee courtesy of Elite Marquees, in Victoria Park in Southport.

This multi-purpose event space which also hosts the annual Southport Flower Show is only a short distance from the town centre and promenade making it the perfect venue for such an event. 

Yvonne Watton, Head of Business at Halliwell Jones Southport said: “As a family-run business we love the opportunity to get involved with events in the local community.

“The Southport Comedy Festival is a perfect example of this as the event brings together people from Southport and beyond.

“We’re delighted to be associate partner for this year’s festival and hope it is the beginning of a long, successful partnership.” 

In addition to their associate partnership Halliwell Jones MINI and Premium Trade Cars Southport will also feature as regular sponsors.

During the event Halliwell Jones BMW and MINI will have the very latest models from the range on display.

They invite anyone attending the festival to visit them in their dedicated marquee next to the main event space.
