Final call for festival tickets
THE organisers of the seventh annual Goosfest are bracing themselves for a last-minute surge in ticket sales for the festival which begins tomorrow, Thursday.
The ‘sold out’ sign has been hung up over several events, including the Comedy Store and the cookery workshop, as well as headline act Kiki Dee, while the Sculpture workshop only has a handful of places left.
Tickets for many of the 24 events, which are being staged at nine different venues over the 11 days up to Monday, October 14, are expected to be snapped up during the festival.
However, there are still tickets available for an evening with Barnsley poet Ian McMillan and cartoonist Tony Husband; a Cotton Club jazz night featuring 52 Skidoo; By George, a musical comedy evening; Fastest Woman, a talk by Gillian Stapleton about Dorothy Levitt, an Edwardian racing driver and an afternoon with former Tatton Park head gardener Sam Youd, who will be unlocking the secrets of a Japanese garden.
Goosfest kicks off with Poetry in Motion at the Red Lion, Goostrey tomorrow, Thursday, and there is another poetry event – Screen Fever with John Lindley – on Sunday.
Bill Ollier, one of the organisers, said: “We are justly proud of our reputation of being one of the best music and arts festivals in the north west and we are again looking forward to yet another very successful Goosfest.
“Our experience from previous years suggests that many people wait until the last minute before booking and so we are gearing up for a surge in sales during the next few days.”
Information about every event and ticket prices can be found at the easy to navigate website goosfest.com.
Tickets for all events are available through the website or from the box office on 01477 535367.
