Stars of TV are coming back to Bootle for the return of the Salt and Tar Comedy Weekender this Spring Bank Holiday Weekend Thursday 23rd to Sunday 26th May. Following the success of last year’s inaugural comedy weekender where hundreds of visitors came to enjoy watching some of the UK’s top performers, the four day event returns and promises to be bigger and better. Salt and Tar is a new multi-use, outdoor events venue, located in Bootle directly behind the Strand Shopping Centre. Salt &Tar is Sefton’s newest hub for large-scale and community events. Their events program for 2024 offers a wide range of entertainment from comedy to music to street food events.
The Comedy Weekender all takes place under canvas in a heated and seated luxury marquee and will host some of the biggest names in comedy featuring stars from Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week and Have I Got News For You to include Seann Walsh, Gary Delaney, Hal Cruttenden, Brennan Reece and rising stars Peter Rethinasamy and Liverpool’s own Katie Tracey.
There will also be Family Fun days with comedy bingo and children’s comedy shows from Britain’s Got Talent star Steve Royle and Bootle’s own John Harding Resident Magician of The Northern Belle. Bingo Nights UK will be bringing their hugely popular Disco Bingo event back to the weekender where you can win fantastic prizes and dance the night away.
New to this year’s programme, there will be a special event. Bootle Stands Up Comedy Workshop showcase will see ten individuals taking part in a six week comedy course culminating in a performance on the main stage on Thursday 23rd May, the opening night of the Salt and Tar Comedy Weekender. The event is sponsored by Dowhigh Ltd and all proceeds will go to a local charity Ykids. Prices for the Salt and Tar Comedy Weekender have been kept deliberately low with tickets starting at just £5.
