MUSICAL acts are being sought to help entertain the crowds at a summer comedy festival.

The Courtyard in Hereford is staging its third #Courtlaughing Comedy Festival from Friday to Sunday, June 6-8 and bands, solo artists and DJs are needed to keep the fun flowing in the Wye Valley Brewery festival marquee throughout the evenings.

An acoustic session is also being programmed from noon to 4pm on the Sunday and interested acts can send CDs or links to their music to Herefordshire's centre for the arts, stating which days they can play.

The comedy festival itself will feature three main headline acts alongside smaller studio comedy events and a marquee holding smaller fringe events.

Applications should be sent to by 6pm on Wednesday, February 19.
