About Us

BD Tickets

BD-Tickets is managed by registered charity Big Difference (1135167), whilst the majority of the events are produced by our partner organisations.  All profits from the sale of tickets go towards supporting the charity.

Big Difference produces the annual Leicester Comedy Festival, which has taken place each February since 1994.  The festival regularly features household names and also has a focus on supporting new talent and enabling many community groups to get involved. These include people with disabilities, older people, mental health service users and young people. We also produce The UK Kids’ Comedy Festival each February.  In addition to the festivals we also work throughout the year to improve the health and well-being of communities across the country by producing a range of projects. Recent projects have focused on working with people living with dementia, people with poor mental health and children and their families.

When buying tickets from our website, you are directly helping support the charity and our work.  You are helping us continue to make a, er, Big Difference.

Tickets & Booking Fees

If you have previously purchased tickets from www.comedy-festival.co.uk you can go ahead and use the same account details.  If not, it’ll take a couple of minutes to set up an account to buy tickets from www.bd-tickets.co.uk

When you buy tickets via the site you will also be able to make a further donation to support the registered charity.

All tickets sold via this site are e-tickets, which you will either be able to save to a device or print off and present when you attend an event.  If you cannot find your ticket, please check your spam/junk folder as sometimes they can end up in there.

If you have any queries about ticketing, please email tickets@bigdifferencecompany.co.uk

Booking fees vary from event to event, but any fees are made clear on the relevant event page.

If you have non-ticketing queries about events, please contact the event organiser directly.  We will pass on any non-ticketing queries and comments to the relevant organiser.  You can make initial contact via tickets@bigdifferencecompany.co.uk

We generally only receive an allocation of tickets from our partner organisations; this means that when tickets are gone from this site, they might be available from other ticket agents, or on the door.

If you would like us to sell tickets for your event/venue/organisation, please do get in touch tickets@bigdifferencecompany.co.uk
