This year it is easier than ever to buy your wristband for Music in the Park as there is now an online sales option. Customers can purchase wristbands and choose whether to have them delivered by signed-for Royal Mail delivery to their own home or place of work, or whether to secure the booking and then pick up the wristbands at their leisure from the Information Centre when they are next in town.
Today the Information Centre at the Guildhall was busy with local residents coming in to get their wristbands for Music in the Park. The number of places available has been increased this year but fans are still advised to get their wristbands as early as possible as each year they seem to sell out a bit earlier than the previous year. The Information Centre is open for wristband enquiries from 9.30am to 3.00pm each weekday and also on Saturdays. The entrance is found in Roysse Court which is set back from Bridge Street and lies opposite Fat Face and Lewis Baker.
Local residents are being offered the opportunity to tour round Ardley ERF.
The tour will take place on the 12th April. Full details of how to apply through the District Council are given on the event page on our town events calendar. For more information click here to go to the right page on the town events calendar.
