The BBC will be running free masterclasses in comedy writing through the Salford Comedy Festival on 18 March 2014. [Ed: While this event isn’t located in London, it’s free training from the BBC and we thought it was worth including since some London writers may wish to make the trip.]
The BBC’s Salford Comedy Festival takes place from Monday 17th to Wednesday 19th March 2014. The three-day event supported by BBC Comedy Commissioning, in collaboration with BBC North, will be held in venues across the MediaCityUK site. Across the three days there are several events open to comedy fans, including the BBC Sitcom Showcase featuring brand new potential TV sitcoms across the three consecutive evenings. On Tuesday evening, Sheffield’s tallest comedian Tom Wrigglesworth will be recording an episode of his BBC Radio 4 series; Tom Wrigglesworth’s Hang Ups.
Writersroom in partnership with the University of Salford will be running comedy masterclasses on Tues 18th March 2014 and there will also be a range of other events on offer.
How to get involved: More details and booking is available on the BBC Writersroom website.
