What is Mach like?

"The comedy fans comedy festival"
Nish Kumar speaking on BBC 6 Music

Mach is a lovely market town in Mid Wales. Ordinarily, it has a population of 2,300 which is served by a host of local, independent shops plus larger Co-Op store to make sure you are able to stock up on all essentials during the festival.

Alongside these there are a handful of local cafes, pubs and restaurants which welcome festival goers throughout the weekend.

There are no nightclubs in the town. The festival Big Top on the Plas lawn is open until 1am each night and at least one of the local pubs has an extended licence for anyone that fancies an even later late-night pint.

The festival attracts comedy fans from all over the UK. Being a small town, it is easy to navigate – even for first timers! You’ll have no trouble finding your way to shows which are all within 10 minutes of each other.
