the noise of the M4 was a bit off-putting at points, and as someone with a disability it was a LONG walk to the bottom end of the park. the over run meant that I only caught about 15 mins of the headline set as I had to leave to get a train, which was really disappointing.

Nowhere near enough parking. Secondary parking over 20 minutes' walk away and not signposted or marshalled or open after 5 (first act at 6). £5.50 for a can of kronenbourg, £2.50 for a cup of lemonade poured from a 2l bottle in front of us, £9 for fish and chips. Front row tickets meant one of first 4 rows. No acts started at or before planned times. Bill Bailey, Ed Byrne, Reg Hunter all hilarious. Robin Morgan good, all other comics went for crude easy gags every time. Bit of a weird mish mash of comedy and "festival".

Great venue maybe a large tent for another year as the weather is unpredictable in Wales. £5.50 for a can of lager meant people weren’t buying. You could see plenty of people turned down the opportunity to drink because it was too much when you can buy a box from the supermarket for £8. £3 would’ve been a more reasonable price. As it is I bought one and just wasn’t bothered to get more. My wife was the same as were our friends. Also parking should be arranged

Knowing that seating was available should be added to all publicity material from the out set.

Also, the absence of onsite parking facilities was hugely disappointing, I'm sure local residents would prefer their streets not to choked with cars of people attending the event.

Other than the above we had a great night.

The best comedian by far was the compare. Ed Byrne was good. Bill Bailey did a 30 min show which was not really that funny. A can of strong bow was £5.50 and most of the food stalls were awful with food not properly cooked

Pluses
Excellent set list, well organised on the night, lots of clean toilets, no queues at bar ( toilet queues moved so quickly it wasn’t an issue) Great to have people constantly collecting rubbish, loads of bins and drinks service at seat if you wanted it.. Ticket excellent value ( would have been cheesed off if I’d paid for the Golden Circle tbh.)

Negatives
Pre gig info was shocking, with no replies to questions, then a big list of rules the day before( including having to have proof of double jab, surely this should have been at point if purchase?)
Set overran by 30 minutes, which is a huge issue for a site with limited parking, and no public transport options so people had to ore arrange taxis/ lifts etc. We had to leave before Bill finished or risk not getting home ?

Great comedians! It was a lovely night out especially after the the last couple of years. Last night felt like a taste of normalcy which was very appreciated.

The venue was lovely and spacious. However, it would have been nice to have a few more food stalls, fairground rides and a gin bar (I was particularly sad that this was not there).

The stage was nicely done with a lovely big screen. Would have like more comfortable chairs as I am still aching this morning from them.

We were given wrong info about parking - told that Tredegar House was open, then told it was locked & we should park on the neig*bouring streets - not good for neig*bour relations…

Review of The Giggling Goat & Just The Tonic presents Bill Bailey + Guests

It was a great line-up of acts - I assume that's what you meant by 'music' above.
The ticket cost was very good value, but the food, and expecially drinks, were way too expensive.
The number of people there was just right, providing a good atmosphere while not feeling cramped.
The information provided about the event was a bit spa**e, especially about seats - some people brought their own as it wasn't clear whether seats were provided, and parking - information was sent out on the afternoon of the event, when people really needed to make travel plans much earlier than that.
All in all, a great event though.

While the performers were excellent it was very clear Giggling Goat hadn't organised anything like this before. Before we left I tried to find a website with set times and general information but all that was on the site was a link to tickets, absolutely no info. Just a couple of hours before the event I got an email saying there was limited parking on site so we should park at Tredegar House instead, as it was a 'very short distance' from the park. So, as we were driving from Bristol and wouldn't get there early, we put that into Google maps instead. Well, when we got to Tredegar House...the car park wasn't even open. So we had to drive around trying to find a spot on the road. When we managed to park, we put Tredegar Park into Google Maps, only to be surprised when it turned out to be over a mile away.

I don't know in which universe a distance of over a mile is a "very short distance" unless by walking the organisers meant driving, but we ended up having to spend 30+ minutes walking around the outskirts of Newport, which apparently hates pedestrians, trying to find the damn park and didn't arrive until 7.15. It was clear the organisers had booked a 1000 ticket event without thinking about parking or considering that people might travel to see someone like Bill Bailey until about 3PM on the day of the event.

When we FINALLY arrived we got some food from two different vendors, both of which was absolutely disgusting (neither of us could finish it) and some drinks, which were ridiculously overpriced. 5.50 for a 330ml can of desperados??

Also while Ed Byrne was performing, one of the fair rides (which absolutely nobody was using) was blasting music which nearly drowned him out.

I'll reiterate, the performers were brilliant, the compere was really funny, and the stewards were all friendly and helpful. But the organisation was extremely poorly handled. Nobody was interested in fairground rides or festival stalls: we were all there to see some comedians. It would've been much more appropriate in a large indoor venue.

Brilliant night - only complaint is that Tiny Rebel were sponsors but you couldn't buy Tiny Rebel beer! The band was really good, great sound, very professional though I might suggest they make the set list more rock than pop for a Newport crowd. There were six comedians including the MC (who was absolutely brilliant) and even the younger/less well known two were excellent.

Wow! Wow! What an amazing night! The acts on before the main comedians were fantastic the only me before the break was crying out loud laughing. Giggling goat were brilliant. Then the main acts were hilarious, Ed Byrne awesome crying with laughter ? Bill Bailey, just awesome, hilarious. So talented. Certainly lol ? Oh what a night!!!!
Couldn’t have dreamt of such a fantastic lineup! Thank you all so much for making us laugh and sing ( some words of labamba lol)!

Huge thanks to Newport Events for putting this on, and all concerned in making the festival possible.
Really couldn’t recommend enough!!! more!! More!!! ! ( but please leave a ticket for me next time around?)
Cans of lager etc sold in our seats. Polite and friendly.
Had food off double decker bus, never had such lush food at an event.

A brilliant evening, and such a lovely atmosphere. Beautiful surroundings. Helpful friendly staff. Plenty of food/drink choices. Immaculate loos (I had Golden Circle tickets, with facilities just for these customers). Disabled places really close, but I had to get in touch with the event organisers to get all the information and help I needed...and they were brilliant (Escape Records). Recommend getting Golden Circle tickets. A little pricier, but well worth it for front row seats, and great facilities.

The venue was great and well organised. So refreshing to be out sharing laughter with great comedians and a great crowd. ??????
Only gripe from me was the limited and slow communication from Giggling Goat not great when you’re travelling to somewhere you don’t know = great gig but no real organised parking offered (some very last minute limited parking on site doesn’t cut it sorry) plus gig finished 30 mins later than advertised resulting in an hour and a half wait for a taxi ride home to accommodation.

Great evening out, love live comedy. All family enjoyed although I think slightly more adult content than should've been for an event with no age restriction. Well organised for the first one of these, would definitely come again. Would love to see this in Singleton Park Swansea as an alternate venue. Big thanks to all of the acts for well needed laughter tears after the grim Covid fiasco we've all endured. Jarred, you owe me one for turning my daughter into your Tourettes cheerleader!

Great night, only slight concern where we could park and then the prices at the bar. Fosters can for £5! Would have been nicer to have some decent beer then I wouldn’t have felt so bad paying that much. Still a great night tho

Fantastic night of live comedy. I hope they put another one on next year! Not one bad comedian in the light. Great night. Drinks were expensive but aren't they always at such events?

Yeah... fair. It was decent-to-good.
I think there was a good amount of people there (not sure if you sold out but if there were 50-756+ more many would have missed out, unless the seating area were 'suitably' expanded..)

Otherwise, strong line-up on initial ticket purchase, which was better made by the Ed Byrne inclusion thereafter. Although not really a fan of his, it was nice you added him to the lineup :)

If you this event again next year, we would wholly subscribe to the VIP...
No queues, nice loo's, swing your pantaloons lol

Please, at the next event, don't oversell tickets. You didn't this time, but I went to 'Depot in the Castle' in Cardiff today and paid for the VIP treatment. It was so over-sold... it took away the point.

You held a great event. Thank you :) :)

Rated music the lowest simply because there was not a huge focus on it. It was a comedy night, and thoroughly enjoyable. Would 100% recommend this event to a friend.

Great show and class comedians for a very reasonable price.
Only beer option was overpriced lager which was a shame but at least it stopped people getting drunk.

I thought the 2nd woman comedian was no particularly funny and a bit below the belt with the 'period' jokes. No belly laughing achieved. Got to the point that I was so demotivated by 9:30pm that I went home and didn't even bother to stay to see Bill bailey.

The prices for drinks were a bit expensive as they always are at these events, but the staff were lovely, the band were lively and fun and they comedians were laugh out loud funny. There was a good atmosphere and it was just so nice to be out enjoying life again. I would love to go to more gigs at this venue.

It was a fab night we both really enjoyed ourselves. It said it finished at 10 so we booked a taxi for 1030 it ran on to 1030 the taxi wouldn't wait so we had to wait until 1150 for a taxi but that was the only thing and the prices of drink and food were quite high but expected at an event. The show was amazing

What a great event. In the past week I have attended 2 events at Tredegar Park. Both were fantastic.
The comedy festival was a great laugh. Plenty of seats, food stalls & great entertainment. Can't wait to attend next year too.

Amazing, the band was great, i was pleasently surprised how well the venue managed despite the covid restrictions, the drinks were not too expensive, the ticket prices were wonderdully cheap for all of the acts and the experience, it was a great atomosphere, the jokes were on point, and it was so nice just being able to see live music and comedians again. Ffion (the 12 year old who made friends with the MC and all of the comedians was Hilarous!) ALL of the acts were amazing. Would Defo recommend

Skiddle have ripped us off. Cool off period promised. No option to get a refund even though the site agreed that cool off period was the following day. No way to contact Skiddle. They are terrible people to buy tickets off!!

Still waiting for a reply from chat or email.

Only 2 criticisms, it would be nice to have some parking and the food and drink prices really should be looked at quite extortionate!! Wasn't sure what to expect having not been to anything like this before but it was great, lots of seating and enough food and drink vans/tents to please every taste bud. Fantastic atmosphere with everyone out for a fun evening and I know that myself and my husband were not disappointed we didn't stop laughing from the time the evening started until it finished at 10.30. I hope there are many more shows like this to come. Well done to the organisers

A fantastic evening, with great comedians. Live music was good too. Great location and set up plenty of space. I do appreciate that event organisers want to make money from an event but I felt £5.50 for a 440ml can of Kronenbourg was extortionate. To add to this food had a similar mark up. Apart from that a great night.
