Festival tickets are hot stuff

MORE than half of the tickets for a fiery finale to the Festival of Alnwick have already been snapped up.

They went on sale last Thursday and the event will see an Olympic-style closing ceremony at Alnwick Garden on Friday, June 15 from 6pm.

Metro Radio Breakfast Show presenter, Anna Foster, has been announced as the MC for the exciting event, which will mark the end of the Festival which celebrates the visit of the Olympic Torch to Alnwick.

The closing ceremony will commemorate the successes of all the competitions staged within the community during the week, with an exclusive performance from the winners of the Talent Northumberland competition as well as a mass school choir recital.

The wow factor will come from a fiery and mesmerising performance from The FlameOz Fire Show, a highly energetic, multi-award-winning, choreographed fire dance and pyrotechnic spectacular.

Tickets to the closing ceremony are available online at The Alnwick Garden website, www.alnwickgarden.com, for £2 each.

For those without internet access, tickets will be made available to buy at Garden admissions every day between 3pm and 5pm only, until sold out.
