The Stay at Home Festival has now concluded it’s daily shows but we are still running loads of free and Patreon subscriber only livestreams. Check them out here.
During the run of the festival we collected over £30 000 to the fundraiser that was distributed out to acts and venues hit hard by the pandemic. THANK YOU!

WATCH ALL SHOWS ON CATCH UP HERE
It is stating the obvious to say that strange days have got a hell of a lot stranger with many people facing confusion and anxiety during this COVID-19 pandemic. Artists have nowhere to play and audiences have nowhere to go to to be distracted. Venues are having to close, gigs are having to be cancelled and festivals abandoned. And so we, at The Cosmic Shambles Network, proudly present The Stay at Home Festival.
We will be live streaming pretty much every day, sometimes twice a day, some of our top podcasts like Book Shambles and Science Shambles as well as presenting mixed bill comedy nights and conversations all without anyone leaving their home. It’s fair to say it might be a bit rough and ready in places but that’s where we’re at with things.
All the shows, for now, will be free to watch because we know a lot of you are worried about the future, and the present, BUT there will be payment buttons (see below) and on the show page each day and if you are able to drop a pound or so into the virtual tip bucket at the end of the show, all profits will go direct to acts, artists and venues who have been hit hardest by having their livelihood taken away.
What time zone? so those of us who are not on UK time can catch these, please.
All times, as per schedule listing, are GMT
What about when BST happens?
This is awesome, best wishes to everyone! Stay safe x

Hi! Will these broadcasts be viewable from the USA?
Yes. No geoblocking.
This is bloody brilliant Robin, thank you.
Hi, will the shows be available to view at a later date? It’s just annoyingly I’m still working during the day and so can’t watch the 10am shows, though would dearly love to.
Not all of them, but a lot will be yes.
That’s great thanks for letting me know.
Will these be family friendly? Or will there be some just for teens/littlies?
Day time ones will be family friendly yes, but we will be doing some extra science ones specially for kids too.
I’ve watched both shows live so far and I think there brilliant thanks Mr Ince for organising the shows ☮️🦉 Pandorah from Queensland Australia ☮️🦉
Is there any way to allow foreign fans to tip? I don’t even have a visa card😭
You can tip from anywhere in the world but you will need a credit or debit card.
When will the festival end?
When we’re all allowed outside again.
Is this your first online festival? Haven‘t noticed before
Yes because we usually do all our shows live but that’s not an option right now!
