Promoter Clara Heimerdinger said: "Following a hit summer of live events at Home Farm's secret woodland stage including music from Jack Garratt, Freya Ridings, James Bay, Nick Mulvey and performances from The Rogue Theatre Company, we're ending the summer with four of the UK's best star comedians.

"Come and soak up the forest air at our woodland stage on a private estate just next to north London - a mere hop, skip and jump from Stanmore or Edgware tube stops."

There will be drinks on sale from Midsummer NightCap and a limited number of spaces for glamping. 

Early bird tickets are on sale at £19.50 until midday on August 27 at https://www.seetickets.com/tour/comedy-in-the-forest
