Slapstick Festival 2013
Slapstick Festival Package 2013
January 24th - 27th 2013
Clifton Hotels and the Slapstick Festival 2013 have worked closely together to created a discounted weekend package for those who wish to stay in Bristol for this fantastic event!
SLAPSTICK 2013 (Jan 24-27) will be the ninth annual edition of Britain’s leading festival of silent film and vintage TV comedy.
The festival began in Bristol, where it still takes place, in 2005 and has grown year-on-year. As well as being admired for its screenings, talks and celebrity guest events, the festival is also highly respected for the new musical scores it commissions to accompany silent movies and for its use of live music.
In addition it fulfils its mission to introduce new audiences to silent and visual comedy by offering under 18s and students discounted admission to all of its events and by letting under 12s attend its annual gala at half-price or less. This year is again bigger and better, with sixteen events, spread over four days at four of Bristol’s finest venues - including, this year Bristol Old Vic, which on January 27th hosts a special Slapstick Sunday, with four major shows.
The central theme this January is FUNNY LADIES. Though the names of Chaplin and Keaton may be better known and remembered today, the girls gave as good as they got, and this is a chance to see again two truly great comediennes, Marion Davies and Colleen Moore, as well as the irresistible comedy troupers, Anita Garvin and Marion Byron, featured in four programmes.
The fantastic Victoria Wood will now be hosting the ever-popular SILENT COMEDY GALA.
