    Hi Laura,

    I would like 2 tickets for the Armed Man but don’t know where to purchase them from. I will be away from 5 June until 18 June so appreciate I would need to purchase them before then.

    Kind regards,

    Frances Murphy

    I wondered if you had considered, afternoon performances, by local groups.
    There are a number of people who are not keen on going out and returning home “in the dark”. This could be something for them to attend and hopefully enjoy.
    I thank you for your consideration to this suggestion.

      Many thanks for your comment. Apologies for such a late response to your query.
      This suggestion does surface occasionally and we do see the validity of it. We’re happy to discuss it again at a future Festival meeting. Just so you’re aware:
      1) The Annual Festival dates were originally chosen to coincide with the longest daylight hours of the year, in late June. This mean it’s possible to travel (locally) to and from even the evening Festival events while it’s light. For 14 years we’ve stuck to this same time of year to enable this.
      2) The Festival always features some afternoon performances, particularly an afternoon Sunday organ recital, an afternoon carnival and now a morning schools’ music competition.
      3) We do have to bear in mind that a number of key Festival helpers work full time during the week, making more of such afternoon events difficult to stage.
      4) In recent years, evening performances have been moved earlier to start at 7pm, consequently finishing earlier. Most of our evening concerts outside of the Festival run through from 7pm-8.15, with refreshments provided afterwards for those who can stay. This has proved very popular.
      5) In direct response to your query, in the season 2012-13 we trialled a series of 4 Sunday afternoon concerts (3pm start). Although these were worthwhile, they were undoubtedly amongst the smallest audience numbers we’ve ever encountered. As a result, the idea of more/regular afternoon events was dropped.
      Hope that’s a help.
      Kind regards,
      Prescot Festival
