Comedian Lloyd Griffith hosted a Welford Road tour with a difference as Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival came to the home of Leicester Tigers.

The 21st annual Leicester Comedy Festival kicked off at the weekend and more than 80,000 people are expected to attend 640 events at venues right across the city.

Welford Road was one of the first venues to open its doors as it welcomed season ticket holders, supporters and comedy fans to a tour of the ground with a difference on Saturday.

Dressed in full Tigers kit, funnyman Griffith’s tour took in all areas of the ground including the club trophy cabinet, the changing rooms and the press areas and incorporated some fabulously funny – and fictional – stories from Tigers’ history.

Griffith returns to Welford Road on Tuesday, March 18 when he comperes the Try Tuesdays Try Comedy night.

Held in conjunction with Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival, the evening will also feature sets by headliner Rob Rouse and support comedians Chris Stokes and Ahir Shah.

Held in the new Try Line Club in the Goldsmiths Stand at Welford Road, it promises to be an evening of top-class comedy. Tickets are priced £8, doors and the bar open at 6.30pm and there is a free pint of Everards Tiger, the official beer of the Leicester Tigers, for people arriving before 7.15pm.
