Six weeks to go to big festival

MANY festivals around the country have had to fold due to the current economic climate but luckily Whitehaven’s is still able to go ahead.

“The main effect the economic situation has had on our festival is that ticket sales tend to be slow,” said organiser Gerard Richardson. “But we are convinced that the support will come because it always does.”

The festival runs as a not-for-profit three-day event organised by volunteers.

“All the income we get is required to fund the event. We just need to make sure people buy their tickets for the big gigs,” added Gerard.

Tickets for Katherine Jenkins, Best of the Seventies and The Charlatans/The Enemy are available from Richardsons, in Lowther Street, telephone 01946 65334 or go to the festival website www.thewhitehavenfestival.co.uk. Tickets for the Charlatans/Enemy gig are on sale in Threads, on King Street.

Wristbands, which allow access to the Sugar Tongue, will be on sale from next Friday.
