At the bottom of the courtyard, the Funhouse Comedy stage will once again be entertaining the crowds throughout the day and into the evening with John Ryan, Patrick Monahan, Ivan Brackenbury, El Baldiniho, Tom Binns, and Vince Atta.

The entertainment doesn't stop away from the main stages with loads for children on offer including fairground rides, and a free kids area hosted by Big Top Mania, featuring circus skills workshops and shows, crazy inflatables, giant bubbles and Big Bear's Big Balloon Disco.

Councillor Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture at Nottingham City Council, said, "We’re pleased to announce a great line-up for Splendour Festival that I think Nottingham people will love. Splendour really is the highlight of the summer and with acts like Jess Glynne, The Human League, UB40 and The Darkness, tickets are sure to sell fast. Splendour truly offers something for all tastes in music, and with the comedy stage and kids’ area it’s a really fun family day out."
