The first ever Deli Comedy Festival is coming to Burgess Park’s Theatre Deli for the month of July, and residents of Aylesbury Estate will be able to book tickets for only £5.

Not only are the tickets affordably priced, but the festival’s line-up also includes big names, such as Romesh Ranganathan, Marcus Brigstocke, and Joel Dommett.

Theatre Deli worked in collaboration with the Creation Trust, a charity that ensures the residents of Aylesbury Estate receive the benefits of the regeneration of the area.

“At our monthly comedy nights, we offer £4 tickets to residents in postcodes SE5, SE15 and SE17, which sell successfully, showing that there is interest in the local community, which is great,” said Malachy Luckie, the intern at Theatre Deli who organised the month-long festival.

“However, with the Deli Comedy Festival, we wanted to target the Aylesbury Estate specifically, as the locals who come to the comedy nights are often not residents of the estate.”

The festival will also feature emerging comedians from under-represented backgrounds alongside the big names, providing a good platform to hear the voices of the up-and-coming.

The theatre’s venue in Broadgate as well as the Old Library Venue in Burgess Park will both be hosting the festival, and the full schedule can be found here.

Tickets are also available to the public for £12, £10 concession, and can be purchased here. Almost all performances start at 7:30.
