Not madding but laughing

IF you are among the many who think Thomas Hardy is not a barrel of laughs, Tom Browns at Dorchester will be looking to change your mind with Hardy Har, the town’s first comedy festival, on Saturday 13th July.

Laughter comes to High East Street as Tom Browns pub joins forces with Dorchester Arts, The Kings Arms and Shire Hall museum to host the festival.

The day will include an array of comedy performances from stand-up to sketch shows. There’s also plenty for the family as The Great Baldini takes the stage at Dorchester Arts followed by a free improv performance by Brave Bold Drama.

Not so much Far From the Madding Crowd as be part of the laughing crowd!
