2022 Contrasting Fortunes for Festivals

Reepham 22 is just four weeks away now.  Have you bought your tickets?  If not, go to Here

Music festivals have become a core part of the English summer, but this year has seen both highs and lows.  There’s no doubt that COVID has had an impact on people’s confidence and willingness to plan ahead.  We were really sad to see that the Wide Skies & Butterflies festival at Norfolk’s Raynham Estate has been cancelled with the organisers citing low ticket sales as the reason for baling out.  On the other hand, Glastonbury seems to have been its usual busy, rocky, fantastic self again and the Killers and Elton John gigs in Norwich were sell-outs.

We’re pretty proud that Reepham Festival 2022 is on track to maintain its reputation as Norfolk’s best small festival.  As always, we have an amazing headline act with Neville Staple from the Specials, plus Festival favourites like Jeramiah Ferrari and Walkway plus exciting bands from near and far including The Kubricks, Sons of Mark and A Saucerful of Floyd.

The key to our success may well be that we have kept the Festival affordable.  At just £35 per person for the whole weekend (and children’s tickets are just £1), we aim to attract a wide range of people from teens to families to working couples to retirees.  Many of those who come along have been rocking up every year for most of the fourteen years that we’ve been running it. 

The downside of being the affordable Festival is that we have to run a pretty tight budget.  We’re so grateful to our primary sponsorship partners, Hansells Solicitors, and all of our other partners (http://localhost/wordpress/partners/) for their amazing support, without which it would be impossible to maintain the ticket prices at this level.

We’re looking forward to Reepham 22 – it’s going to be the highlight of our Summer.  See you there!
