Komedia is Bath’s leading live entertainment venue. Hosting over 400 events per year in the beautifully restored Grade II listed former Beau Nash cinema, Komedia Bath offers an unparalleled programme of comedy, music, cabaret and club nights. Komedia Bath, the destination in the region for touring comedy and music, hosts a raft of regular shows which include our double header Saturday night; Krater Comedy Club and, Bath’s biggest club night, Motorcity.
Five time winner of the Chortle Award for Best Venue in the West and Wales, Komedia works closely with Bath’s many festivals. These include the Bath International Music Festival, Bath Fringe and Bath’s Film, Literary Children’s and Comedy festivals.
Komedia’s multi award winning kitchen serves lunch throughout the week in the Komedia Arts Café, as well as offering some of the highest quality food that you will find in an entertainment venue. Add to the already impressive offer, film screenings in partnership with The Little Theatre Cinema in one Bath’s most iconic buildings, Komedia can claim to be at the cultural, as well as geographical, heart of the city.
The Next Steps – Komedia and the Community:
We have been inspired by the innovative idea of common ownership and we’re taking advice and investigating the opportunity to convert Komedia Bath to a Community Benefit Society.
So far, we’ve had a very positive response to this idea and we feel that, if the city of Bath has an appetite for common ownership and the right structure can be created, we will aim to launch in the Autumn.
It is important for us to hear your thoughts about Komedia’s future. Please get in touch with us here with any questions or ideas you might have.
