At the end of the day, this festival would not survive without the generations contributions made by so many. We would like to give huge thanks to:
Our raffle donators:
All our fantastic front of house, marketing, box office and techical volunteers. And finally, all members of the executive committee who have given their time tirelessly for months.
The technical problems with online booking have now been resolved.
The problem was due to a technical problem with Realex – the system that handles secure online card payments – it was unavailable from 9am to 3:30pm. Unfortunately this issue was out of our control but we are monitoring it closely.
Note that no existing bookings were affected and all successful payments made are being processed as normal.
There may be a slight slowness when processing payments online due to a back-log of payments. If you have any questions or problems please contact us immediately email@example.com. Again we apologise for any inconvenience caused. We will honour all reservations made today while the system was unavailable and we will hold your tickets at the venues up to 5 minutes before the show start time.
Week 2: May 14th to 20th
Sold Out (only stand-by tickets at the venue)
all shows currently available
Selling Fast (tickets still available but pre-booking recommended)
Important audience note:
We kindly request that all audience members arrive at the venues 10-30 minutes before the start time of the performance in order to assist our venue staff.
Latecomers may not be admitted as this disrupts the performances
