BBC Radio Wales
BBC Radio Wales have broadcast from the festival since 2012 and we’re absolutely thrilled to announce a new element to the partnership for 2018 with the naming of our largest Festival venue, The BBC Radio Wales Mach Arena.
Our on-going ties with BBC Radio Wales are very important to us, especially at such an exciting time for comedy in Wales, which is being driven by investment in talent and programming by BBC Wales as a whole.
We’re thrilled to announce a new partnership with Creative Wales who, through their venue sponsorship of the Tabernacle are looking specifically to enhance the development of Welsh artists at the event, and to help us to continually improve the Festival’s accessibility. We can’t wait to build a long and lasting relationship with them.
