Rye Arts Festival has launched its 2019 Festival in full to its Members and Benefactors. And, as in the 47 previous Festivals, Members will get a two-week priority booking period, as well as discounts off tickets purchased.
Until July 22 people who have paid the £15 minimum annual Membership fee get an exclusive opportunity to buy tickets and enjoy 10% discounts on all tickets purchased, while Benefactors who pay £35 enjoy a 15% discount.
Andy Stuart, publicity co-ordinator for the Festival says: “While the Festival broke new ground by releasing some tickets for 24 events early this year, we are reverting to the long-standing practice of giving Members a fortnight’s exclusivity for ticket purchased on all the 50 plus events that make up this year’s Festival between September 14 and 29.
“Anyone can sign up online to become a Member and enjoy the fantastic discounts available – which are among the best of any arts festival in the UK, if not the very best. But there should be tickets left for most events from July 22 when the general public can buy tickets.”
Watch out for next week’s Rye News when details of the full list of events will be released with further in-depth previews in forthcoming weeks.
However, Andy Stuart, points out that while the brochure has been printed there has been a last-minute addition of a further event which won’t appear in it.
“Yesterday, we agreed with the former BBC news journalist and broadcaster Gavin Esler, that he will come to speak about his new book ‘Brexit – without the Bullshit’. The talk, at 6:30pm on Wednesday September 18 at Rye Methodist church, is likely to be lively, and fascinating no matter which side of the debate you stand on” says Andy Stuart.
Tickets for this talk and other events are currently on sale to the Festival’s Members on the Festival website until July 22 when they go on public sale.
