A tribute to the music and madness of Neil Innes, performed by the finest daft musicians in the South West, with some very special guests lined up to perform his medley of hit and more!

Bath Comedy Festival's annual Bath Plug Award for comedy greatness was first awarded in 2015 to our beloved patron, Python genius Terry Jones, and late last year his old friend Neil Innes comedy maestro, Bonzo, Rutle, and all-round King of the Philosopher-Clowns was asked if he'd be keen to pick one up too. He expressed a keenness to return to Bath, where he's performed so many times over the year but then, two days before the start of the 2020s, Neil quickly collapsed and died, at the age of 75.

Therefore, this year we present the first posthumous Bath Plug Award. All money raised will go toward refunding the losses from PledgeMusic's failure to release Innes' last album, 'Nearly Really' which can now thankfully be bought from neilinnes.media.

Singalongs encouraged come along, and really express yourself!
