Film annoucement dates and 2016 ticket prices

Post by iomega » Fri Jun 03, 2016 9:59 am

We are changing the way we are announcing our 2016 programme. We are not making any early announcements of the films or guests as in past years. The programme will be announced at 2 pm on Friday 1st of July. Festival and Day passes will go on sale the following day, the 2nd of July. Single tickets along with news on our guests for 2016 will be released later in July.

On the ticket front, we are holding the cost of passes at the same level as 2015, so a full pass will cost £185. Day passes for Thursday 25th August are £30. Friday 26th and Saturday 27th August £60 and Sunday 28th and Monday the 29th of August £50.
 Single tickets for our main and discovery screen films are £13.50.

All advanced ticketing will be online again, so no sleepy queue again this year, however, walk-up sales will be available at the event. We have improved the ticketing process over last years, and although there will be a queuing system in place, waits should be shorter.

 We have also negotiated a better rate of commission on tickets, so there will be a saving there.

After much consultation, we are sticking with our tried and tested way of doing FrightFest tickets. So as in past years, our festival and day passes come with an allocated seat in one of our three Main Screens. 

Festival and day passes also allow holder access to screenings films in our Discovery Screens at no additional cost. The passes will have a unique code which allows this on a first come first serve basis. We will release these tickets in the run-up to the event, probably a little earlier that last year, and they can be booked online in advance.

"No sleepy queue but walk-up sales will be available at the event".If i was in London on Saturday am i able to get tickets from the cinema itself or not then?
Sorry if that seems like a stupid question-it's just that if you CAN buy tickets at the cinema itself surely a large queue will naturally form anyway?
Thanks in advance!

i would be fairly certain from the wording that advance tickets are online, but on the door tickets can be bought once the festival is on.

So.... looking at that, just weekend full pass tickets go on sale at 12pm?

Any news on when day passes hit the purchasing queue? I'm meant to be at a BBQ on Saturday and want to be organised for Sat / Sun tickets beforehand!

I get that, but my specific question is - what time? I'd assume, from what Ian's said, the same time, midday. But it'd be nice to be 100% clear so I'm ready at the right time. ;)

Hello thatcambridgebird

I'm sure it'll be at the same time [12noon] as full passes, bar any tech problems. More news will be posted tomorrow.

cheers
