2021 Festival Announcement - Friday 20th March at 11.30am


The Pavilion Theatre box office manager has asked me to re-iterate my previous requests regarding your current 2020 festival tickets, therefore I ask everyone to hold back for as long as they can before contacting them please as they have a massive amount of bookings to deal with that have been cancelled or postponed as well as the festival. Thank you for your understanding!

2021 Festival Announcement - Thursday 19th March at 2.30pm

'I am delighted to announce that all bar one of the acts/artists I am waiting to hear back from have agreed to transfer their original 2020 slots to 2021' 

See you there?

In the mean time, please keep safe!

Scott Butler - Festival Director


Corona Virus Update - Wednesday 18th March at 2.30pm

'As many of our our festivalgoers will be expecting and understand by now, it will come as no surprise that this year's festival is now postponed until next May. 

Sadly I have received some criticism for delaying this announcement since the government's advice last friday, but whilst I can understand customer's frustration, I have held back in order to organise an orderly retreat from this situation. This has included carefully co-ordinating with the pier management company and also re-negotiating with artists featured in this year's line-up to which I have around 50% back in place in their original spots they were to perform this year. This already includes the Fairports returning to the Sunday night headline spot as booked for this year. 

I believe I have been diligent in trying to achieve potential damage limitation concerning our lovely event for future years. If our regular festival fans are happy to transfer their tickets and their favourite seats to 2021 that would be much appreciated! The dates will be Friday 7th to Sunday 9th May. Please refer to this Pavilion Theatre link for further information.

It remains for me to thank you for understanding and wish you well in these difficult times.'

Scott Butler, Festival Director
