Three day entrance permits (80 in total) are again available this year for Williamscot residents and children (over the age of 12 years) at the special price of £40.
Any surplus tickets after 30th June will be made available to Wardington residents, two per household, on a first come first served basis. Children under 12 years of age accompanied by an adult have free admission as advertised in the Warbler.
If there are enough tickets still available after the 15th July, then the names of Wardington residents who have requested additional tickets will be allocated their reasonable residents request.
If there is a shortfall in tickets required after the 15th July a draw will take place and the allocation made according to the draw.
This seemed the fairest method as waiting for the ballot for all the tickets caused uncertainty and might be unnecessary if all the tickets were not taken up.
Last year’s entrance arrangements will continue. The Festival organisers will operate a bracelet collection service only against pre-advised place allocations supplied by me. It is clearly important that I am aware of and agree to allocation requests and residents may wish to contact me should clarification be required.
Please note the following procedures.
a. Applicants will need to complete and return to me the schedule (see over) with the appropriate payment.
b. When places have been allocated, I will advise applicants by telephone or email of availability and bracelet collection times at the Fairport pavilion which will be based at the Cropredy Sports Ground.
Please note that everyone attending the Festival will need to be identified (driving licence / passport preferred but a bank debit / credit card will suffice) before their bracelet will be released. This security measure will be strictly observed by the Festival organisers although no ID is required for children under 12 years of age.
Please return the completed schedule to me with your payment (cheques in favour of Wardington Parish Council) by 30th June. After 30th June any surplus tickets will be made available to Wardington residents.
