Goosfest 2019 tickets went on sale on Saturday morning and we hear that they’ve never had them sell so fast! Great news.
If you are planning to go to some of the events – and there seems to be something for everyone in the 2019 brochure – better get booking quickly to reserve your tickets before they sell out! Book online at https://Goosfest.com/
It’s online booking only this year – but there is a handy helpdesk phone number for people who aren’t online, or aren’t familiar with making online bookings.
Some highlights for 2019: globally-renowned singer Barbara Dickson with Scottish singer Rab Noakes; a presentation by Welsh naturalist and television wildlife presenter Iolo Williams; an Elvis tribute act by one of Europe’s top Elvis impersonators and The Budapest Café Orchestra. There’s the ever-popular Goosfest Buzz Comedy Night, plus storytelling, drama and lectures, and music ranging from guitar solos and classical, to jazz, country and Northern Soul.
Community events include an Art Exhibition, Goostrey Archives, Artisan Market, children’s show plus a children’s print-making workshop during our Art Exhibition, and other workshops covering flower arranging, photography, Roberts’ Bakery masterclasses, and gin-tasting.
There will be two opportunities to enjoy lunch at The Swettenham Arms accompanied by local singers with the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein; entertainment with meals at The Crown and The Yellow Broom, plus Irish food when ‘Goostrey Goes to Ireland.’
“Last year, we launched our new Goosfest website, and this year, we’re moving to online booking only. Please note that there will no longer be a ‘physical’ Box Office via Roger Rushton’s house, in Brooklands Drive.
But don’t worry if you don’t have a computer or can’t access the Internet. There will be a 24-hour Goosfest Box Office telephone number where you will be able to leave your contact details and requirements. Goosfest will ring you back to personally assist you with your purchases.
Goosfest is a not-for-profit operation and we aim to keep our quality high and our ticket prices low. This is only possible if our local community continues to support Goosfest by attending events. We also thank our sponsors and Goostrey Parish Council.
If you’re new to Goosfest, come along and see what you’ve been missing! Make the most of a fantastic opportunity for entertainment and socialising on your doorstep. And to our regular Goosfesters, here’s to Goosfest 2019 and a great festival!” Goosfest
