Deer Shed Festival have programmed an impressive line-up of comedy and theatre, which includes Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Panel Prize winners Funz and Gamez, one of the best sketch groups in the UK Pappy’s, beatboxing sensation Shlomo and entertaining comedy-cabaret troupe Slightly Fat Features amongst many other shows.
The team behind Deer Shed Festival are committed to presenting family-friendly, PG art and comedy shows. Their full line-up balances shows suitable for kids, along with other shows not solely being aimed at a younger audience.
In January 2015, Deer Shed Festival received a Gold Award from Festival Kidz; a group of seasoned festival families dedicated to recognising those festivals who cater best for kids and families. The Gold Award is their highest accolade, requiring either exceptional or good in all categories.
Sunderland City Council have sponsored the Deer Shed Festival Workshop Tents, promoting family adventure, discovery and activity in their ‘See It Do It Sunderland’ workshops.
