I am delighted to confirm that bookings are now open for Festival 2018 which runs over the weekend of 8 - 10 June 2018. The full detail of the Festival programme is available on the Corsham Walking Festival website and this is the easiest way to book tickets for the walks and the Saturday evening Quiz and Buffet. Alternatively you can book via The Pound Arts Centre (Tel 01249 701628) during normal box office hours.
All methods of booking will close at 1400 the day before the relevant walk to allow time for lists of walkers to be printed for the following day. Bookings for the Quiz and Buffet Supper will close a week beforehand (ie 2 June 2018) so that we can confirm numbers for the catering - please let us know of any dietary requirements when you book.
Payment can be made by cash, cheque or most major credit/debit cards. In line with other booking systems, there is no longer a charge for using a credit/debit card, however a booking fee of £1.00 will be added to the total ticket value in a single transaction - regardless of the method of payment.
A reminder that although a number of walks are free, places on them still need to be booked in the normal way. For the Children's Treasure Hunt on Saturday, places only need to be booked for the participating children - not for the accompanying adult.
Once again we will not be issuing tickets for the walks; confirmation of payment for the relevant walk will be provided during the booking process for your records - but does not need to be shown for walk registration. Registration at the start of the walk will be based on the lists provided from the booking system.
With 27 walks in our walking programme this year, there are are more places available in Festival 2018 than ever before. However if 2017 was anything to go by, you should not delay booking your preferred walk; 70% of all ticket sales were made in the first five weeks and most of the walks were sold out before the Festival weekend. Look out for sales updates on the website and in next months newsletter.
Friends of Corsham Walking Festival should have received a separate email today seeking volunteers to man the Festival HQ. If you are not already a Friend and would like to volunteer, please update your subscription details and/or get in touch.
