TICKETS UPDATE 11th April 2006

==============================



TICKETS ARE NOW ONSALE!! bounce You can follow this link to the online Shop to make your purchase. If you buy a ticket with the forthcoming DVD you will get a 3 discount. Please note that the price of 25 will only be valid until the 13th June









Finally, we have a venue for play biggrin

Thanks for being so patient, the location for PLAY is now confirmed as being at Fordhall Farm, Market Drayton, Shropshire. TF9 3PS



The gates will be open from 10am Thursday 22nd June until 6pm Monday 26th June (yes that's FIVE days biggrin ) and will cost the princely sum of 25 in advance and 30 from two weeks prior to the festival. The tickets will be on sale from Sunday 2nd April right up until the event. The ticket price covers all facilities and events once onsite (bar, food & drink etc excluded of course) all workshops, the show(s), the childrens creche area etc etc etc



A beautiful organic farm set in the countryside (although 5 minutes from the town of Market Drayton) that will make for the most wonderful setting for this years (and hopefully many more) PLAY Festival.

(Please visit the Fordhall Farm website, they need to raise 600,000 by July 2006 to stop this beautiful fertile place from becoming yet another industrial development, if you can help their cause please do so hug )



It has great links to the M6 motorway via the A53 and for non car users we will post all info about the local transport situation asap. There isn't a train station that's particularly close but we will be laying on a PLAY Bus to make collections to/from the station as often as possible to help everyone out. There may be a very small charge for this (ie a quid or two) to cover the cost of the driver etc.



I will keep this post updated and of course keep your eyes on the PLAY Website and forum for the most up to date information.



If you could keep your questions in the PLAY Forum we'd much appreciate it as it will help us keep some control and ensure we answer as many as possible. It'll save Malcolms badwidth a little too.....



Hope to see you all there!

Woke up, to another hot day...oh oops what was that Cantus?



funkydred, what Dunc said, but you will be allowed to drive to the camping area as long as you move your car to the car park as soon as you can - we don't have room for tents and cars in the same place smile


There's too many home fires burning and not enough trees

Funkydred.....PLAY festival is all based in one main field, with a smaller seperate one for quiet camping. All facilities etc are accessable within a minute or two's gentle walk and and yes you will be able to hear tunes from the fire spinning area smile

See you all there...11 days to go!!! bounce eek

In other words they let you drive to where you take out your tent and put out all your camping gear and then you drive the car back to the parking place. So no carrying at all.

Posted:(by the way - this is Sym)

The field is about 300m from end to end. the Camping will (from the gate) start from about 200m away, but if you get right to the other end, you'll be about 300m away.

Does that help?

Yes, we'll talk to you about where you want to go etc when you turn up, but as long as you don't have a car there it'll be cool. Campervans are welcome too smile
