Fairport’s Cropredy 38th Festival, 2018
August 9th 10th, 11th,
Application for Bourtons Tickets
Bourtons Parish Council hopes to be allocated concessionary entries to the festival as usual, although this has yet to be confirmed. The names of successful applicants are sent to Cropredy by the Fairport organisation for exchange for wristbands only at advertised times at Village Wristband Booth at the sports field. Matching ID may be required at exchange.
The new GDPR legislation taking effect 25.5.18 is making complexity by which we must ask your permission to hold personal information about you while we sort out ticket sales.
The following are revised arrangements for registering for concessionary entries. Please bring your application form, together with ID that shows your address in the Bourtons to Bourton Village Hall between 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm on Tuesday 19th June 2018.
Registrations will be agreed on a ‘first come first served’ basis until 8.00pm (or earlier if all tickets are taken), when a draw will be held for second registrations if there are any. (Nominations are permitted within reason for family and close Bourtons friends, see below)
Fairport ticket allocation 2018
Last year Gareth Williams, the Fairport organiser, told us that we must be much stricter in selling tickets to people with close village connections, such as sons, daughters,or grandchildren who may now live elsewhere.
Fairport are going to examine our list with this in mind. If we infringe this limitation we will be in danger of losing the privilege of concessionary tickets altogether, as happened in the past.
If you wish to buy a ticket for somebody else please evaluate whether they would be eligible, and be prepared to explain who they are and why they are eligible. We have received clarification that if you do not wish to use a concessionary ticket yourself , you may nominate someone else, but they must be a Bourtons resident, or be a son or daughter, or grandchild of resident
Registrations will cost £45 each (full 3-day price £135) so please make sure you bring your cheque(s) for £45 payable to Bourtons Parish Council.
(Separate cheque for second, potential, ticket if required makes admin easier! It will be destroyed or returned if unsuccessful)
In 2017 we did have unsold tickets. In case that happens again please tell us on the night if you would wish to buy extra tickets if any are available. They MUST still be for Bourtons residents.
Chairman, Bourtons Parish Council
