    With a love of stories and childhood escapades at its heart, Just So Festival enables families to step out of their day to day lives and into a wonderland of world class literature, arts, theatre, dance, music, comedy and creative pursuits together.

    Underpinned by the Tribal Tournament, the most bonkers competition in the land, it takes audiences (from bumps to great grandparents) on a unique expedition of mischief and mayhem, to lands full of magical midnight feasts, curious creatures, raucous pillow fights, hidden retreats, top notch food, drink and boutique camping options and breathtaking beauty.

    Explore what’s in store here… And keep your ears to the ground for more adventures and surprises to be revealed each month.

    Following a sellout tour last year, Jeremy Hardy has hit the road in 2018 with his new show – scheduled to hit Leek on 12th October.

    The show sees him at his politically astute best but paying more attention to the human condition. With Brexit, Trump and the world in general, he has plenty to talk about – but who is the man behind the mirth? What makes him tick? What keeps him awake at night? What does he fear, and hope for?

    Jeremy is enjoying his fourth decade as a stand-up comedian. That’s a more dramatic way of saying he started 34 years ago and, without a lottery win, probably has at least another 34 years to go. He’s managed to pack a fair bit into his career already though, what with being part of the furniture of BBC Radio 4 (At Home With The Hardys, Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation, The News Quiz, I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, and recentlyJeremy Hardy Feels It), TV work such as Now Something Else with Rory Bremner, Blackadder Goes Forth, and Jack Dee’s Helpdesk, and films such as Hotel, How to Be (with Robert Pattinson),and Jeremy Hardy v the Israeli Army (in which he challenged the military occupation of the West Bank). He has written columns for The Guardian and Red Pepper, and three books: When Did You Last See Your Father, Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation,and My Family and Other Strangers.

     Back in 1988 Jeremy won the Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Festival, and in 1991 he bagged Best Live Act at the ITV Comedy Awards. Since then he has never stopped gigging, and there’s a good chance he’s performed in every town in the UK. Here’s a wee taste of a recent show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_AotzQAkIM
