We’re still smiling thinking back to this year’s event and want to offer our thanks again if you were there – so many wonderful performances, special moments, happy people and sunshine! Thank you for your feedback and suggestions for 2019, all noted and taken on board. Our ethos has always been to “offer not only the best in live music today but to re-create a community spirit that many events nowadays lack. This event is about people young and old coming together and taking part in something that will be remembered for a long time.” We have already booked some brilliant artists to join us next year but its early days for announcing anything just yet. We are busy planning and developing some fantastic new ideas for site art installations, walkabout performance theatre and deciding on the theme for 2019. We have already made improvement to the site itself to speed up the entry for campervans and larger vehicles next year. And we will be opening a new entry gate to site on the Thursday specifically for cars only to allow quicker entry to the car parks and site. And, even though we had more in 2018, we will be adding even more toilets around site to try to help reducing queuing! 2019 TICKETS Beautiful Days 2019 festival tickets will be available from 9am 12 October – all details/prices/links here TICKETS We always used to go on sale around this point and have decided to pull the on sale date forward to give us all more time for planning and booking. As we mentioned previously, we are holding all ticket prices for adults and children and are not increasing the capacity of the festival. We do not have any Early Bird or Tiered pricing, the first through to the last tickets will all have the same face value. As we don’t offer payment plans you should have time to save/spend as you wish and won’t be worse off for buying sooner or later – should you decide to join us in 2019. CARAVANS, TIPIS, BELL TENTS & YURTS We are pleased to be able to offer a limited number...
