Brought to you by the team behind Stavanger’s internationally renowned Nuart Festival and developed in collaboration with Aberdeen Inspired and Aberdeen City Council, Nuart Aberdeen provides a platform for local, national and international artists to showcase their work through a series of site-specific murals, installations, interventions, and temporary exhibitions in the city centre.

Aberdeen Comedy Festival

Next October Aberdeen will be full of laughs when the hottest comedians come to town. With stand out headliners, fringe favourites and comedy legends make sure you you’re part of the fun! Full of laughs from start to finish… We will be announcing the 2019 dates very soon – so keep your eyes peeled! 

Last October we had a variety of comedy for everyone, including multi-bill shows, solo shows, improvisation comedy, kids events, comedy films and workshops. We have an impressive collection of international, national and local comics lined up to make you laugh. Our show stopping line up included headlining acts Reginald D Hunter, David O’Doherty and Tom Allen, to name a few!

The Aberdeen Comedy Festival is just one of Aberdeen Inspired’s many projects, designed to make Aberdeen city centre one of the most vibrant, attractive and liveable cities in Scotland. We are committed to seeing the city grow and prosper over the coming years and beyond. However, this could not be achieved without our valued sponsor and partners who we thank for their continued support and enthusiasm.
