The first Laugh Kingston Comedy Festival took place in various venues across the borough at the end of last month.

The festival raised money for charity appeal Love Kingston, which donates funds to good causes across the borough.

Love Kingston is supporting five local projects committed to ‘pathways out of poverty’ and building a Legacy Fund for the future.

The charity aims to create a fair and good society for everyone in Kingston.

Festival organiser Dan Adams said it was three months of solid hard work to get the festival held and was delighted with the response.

He said: “There are plans for the festival to be held next year. We still need to talk to various bodies over a few minor issues such as ticketing.

“The charity is happy with the money raised.”

Mother-of-three Jane Summers, 43, Kingston, praised the festival for bringing the community together.

Mrs Summers took her children to the Saturday show ‘Comedy Club 4 Kids’ during the festival and said it was a great day out for the whole family.

She said: “We had a great time and would definitely come next year if it is held again.

“My children haven’t had so much fun in ages! It was a great event for Kingston.”
