Greenwich Comedy Festival, Old Royal Naval College

London’s biggest comedy festival returns for its third year – the Big Top once again pitched in the scenic Cutty Sark Gardens. There’s a stack of great acts – including Omid Djalili and Stephen K Amos – but tickets sell quickly. If you miss out on seeing your favourite comedian, there’s a great atmosphere outside the main areas, with good spots to have a few sundowners and a bite to eat. Make the most of the year’s last decent weather.

September 5-11
