The third Camberley Comedy Festival took place on Saturday in glorious sunshine, to a delighted sold out crowd.
Comedians Seann Walsh, Luisa Omielan, Andrew Ryan and MC Laura Lexx had the crowd laughing from start to finish. Held inside a beautiful four hundred capacity star lit marquee at the London Road Recreation Ground in Camberley, the festival is organised by Camberley Theatre.
There were food and drink outlets also in the park and the festival is growing from strength to strength. The first one took place in 2019 inside a tipi to just fifty people!
