The Arcadian, one of the leading leisure venues in Birmingham,
is lending its support to the Birmingham Comedy Festival for
the fifth consecutive year.
One of the city’s most popular annual arts events, the festival runs from Friday, October 7 to Sunday, October 16, 2016, and will see a host of established and fast-rising names taking to stages across the city. The Arcadian, which is owned and managed by leading commercial property company London & Cambridge Properties (LCP), is home to the multi-award-winning Glee Club – one of the country’s top comedy venues and host again to a number of the acts for this year’s festival. A spokesperson for the festival said: “We’re delighted that The Arcadian is again supporting the Birmingham Comedy Festival. As home to The Glee, it’s at the core of the festival, while its varied range of restaurants, cafes and bars make it an ideal destination for a night out.
“The Glee is also the host of our official launch event, the Birmingham Comedy Festival Breaking Talent Award.” The Arcadian first signed up as official sponsor for the ten-day event in 2011. Lina Higuita, centre manager at The Arcadian, said: “We are only too pleased to lend our support once again to this excellent event that takes place on our doorstep. It always attracts a great crowd of visitors from across the country.” This year’s festival line-up will be officially announced over the summer.
