Following extensive planning and discussions with local hotels, restaurants, the council and local authorities, it appears that despite moving the festival a week earlier, this will still present challenges, especially over the weekend. Just like Lytham Festival, much of the setup for the golf event will be taking place the weekend prior to the tournament.
Subsequently we have taken the decision to move the festival to new dates of 18th – 22nd July 2018. We will shortly be announcing these dates publicly, but we wanted you to be aware of this directly from us prior to any announcement.
We are aware that some customers may find this date inconvenient, and we have not taken the decision to move the festival lightly. For the successful operation of the festival, and the surrounding town, we felt this was the most responsible course of action. Your tickets will be moved to the NEW date, and you need not take any further action (other than updating your calendar!). Tickets will be posted to you approx. 4 weeks before the festival.
If you have booked tickets, and are now unable to attend the new dates, we will offer a full refund of the tickets and any booking fees. If you wish to claim a refund, please email email@example.com (attaching your original booking confirmation email) and we will refund to the card you made the purchase on. Please note, the deadline for applying for a refund is midnight on Sunday 10th December 2017. All early bird tickets have now SOLD OUT.
