To Ticket or Not to Ticket – That is the question

Eventbrite - Manchester Beer & Cider Festival 2016Advance tickets for the festival have been selling like (insert your favourite beer here) – with take up around 50% ahead of the 2015 festival.

One of the most frequently asked questions is “will I be able to pay on the door”? Well the simple answer is “that depends how many other people want to pay on the door”.

Around 50% of the available space for each day has been put on advance sale. When these tickets have gone, remaining space each day will be pay on the door on a first come, first served basis. When the hall reaches capacity, entry will be on one out, one in basis.

It’s a big hall but capacity is not just governed by floor space – we have to consider many legal requirements for your health & safety and of course we have to make sure we have enough beer to sell to those who come through the door. We don’t want to ask people to queue in the cold, but if we’re full, we’ll unfortunately have no choice.

At time of writing, we don’t expect any problems with capacity on Wednesday & Thursday – however remember that advance ticket holders will have a separate entrance at busy times so you can beat the queues.
Friday and Saturday are expected to be busy. Saturday’s original allocation of tickets has already sold out once and after reviewing capacity we added a few more but these are expected to be sold out soon.
Currently there are a good number of tickets for Friday remaining so if you want to guarantee your space at the festival, grab some now.
