Ticket sales for this year’s Bury St Edmunds festival have taken off as word spreads about the wide range of events on offer from May 16-25.
The festival is back to 10 days this year, with a packed programme combining renowned international performers and interactive events.
Nick Wells, Festival Manager, said: “Our first two weeks of ticket sales have been the strongest for years, which bodes well for a great festival in May.
“It seems our followers are relishing the return to a ten-day festival giving them a wider choice of events so they are booking early.”
So far the festival’s top sellers have been Penguin Cafe, Kosmos, The Fureys, Fodens Band and What the World Needs Now - the music of Bury Bacharach.
Classical music events are also selling well particularly Armonico Consort, Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, and Four Girls, Four Harps.
New themed walks around the market town are looking set to sell out fast and people are being urged to book early to avoid disappointment.
