Relentlessly crude but good-natured British comedy.

Review: The Festival

Puerile but exuberant Inbetweeners-style comedy featuring typically game work from Joe Thomas.

James Mottram, The List, 14th August 2018

Interview: Hugh Coles

Hugh Coles teases upcoming British comedy film The Festival.

Pip Ellwood-Hughes, Entertainment Focus, 10th August 2018

The Festival like a Inbetweeners movie in all but name

"I think it's similar to The Inbetweeners, but not 'the same'. Very funny but with honesty and heart - that was the aim."

Mark Butler, i Newspaper, 25th June 2018
