TICKETS for events in Leek Arts Festival 2022 – the first since 2019 (thanks a lot Covid-19!) are now on sale.
Tickets for key events in the 2022 Leek Arts Festival will be on sale at The Foxlowe Arts Centre from Wednesday December 15 – just in time for culture fans to buy them as Christmas presents. Tickets are also available online – see links in the website.
Artists confirmed so far for next year’s festival include former Fairground Attraction star Eddi Reader, surrealist comic Boothby Graffoe, parody supremo Scott Doonican – frontman of the hugely popular comedy band The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican – and Leek Arts Festival regulars Fairport Convention.
Festival chairman Phil Edmeades said: “Covid -19 forced us to cancel our plans for 2020 just a few short weeks before the start of the programme – and Festival 2021 never even got off the ground.
“We’re delighted to confirm that, subject to no new Covid disasters, Leek Arts Festival 2022 will be going ahead next year and that a number of major artists have already been signed to perform.
“We’ve also got plenty of interest from local groups and individual artists who are keen to be involved, although there’s always room for more in our programme which will run from late April through to early June.”
Anyone wishing to put on an event for Leek Arts Festival 2022 should email full details to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 11, 2022, to ensure inclusion in the printed version of the programme.
Phil added: “We are aware that a small number of people who bought physical tickets for Eddi Reader, Boothby Graffoe and Fairport Convention in 2020 are still holding on to them. These tickets will not be valid for gigs in Festival 2022 and should be returned to the point of purchase for a full refund.”
