The countdown is on and everything is full on in the WinterStorm H.Q.!
Tickets have arrived and should all be in your hands by now along with some information that you may find useful.
The event has been fully sold out for some time but we are putting up ticket and guest returns as they come available - go to the tickets page for latest availability as it changes daily. We are suggesting that resellers use Twicket to sell these on at face value.
Merchandise Update 13th November
There has been a wee delay in the delivery of the merchandise and we are currently expecting it to be in ou office on Wednesdya or Thursday of this week so please don't worrty that it's been lost! We may get in touch with some of you regarding the possibility of collection at the venue but in any case all purchasers will be contacted with an update on despatch.
You can still pre-order merhcandise for collection at the venue on arrival and this includes tokens for food and drink. It would be really helpful both to ourselves and yourselves by reducing queuing too!
In addition to the stage times we'll publish updates on the bars and products, catering and menus, travel times and anything else we can help with! In the meantime you can tune into the first of Tom Russell's WinterStorm podcasts which as well as having some great music from this year's bands it also features wee bits of advice for the first timer!
Tom Russell WinterStorm Podcasts
13th November Podcast Two
October Podcast One
These are all now in place and published in full below. Remember doors open 2pm on the Friday and Midday on the Saturday.
After the 'Storm
After the 'Storm is also attracting some wide attention too. We thought long and hard about extending the programme into a third day but felt that this was different enough that we should try it. It's an early start, limited capacity seated acoustic event and is only available to ticket holders of WinterStorm. We think it's got the potential to be a superb wind down event with the voices of Geoff Tate, Terry Brock and Steve Overland - the first two supported by their bands and the latter by the wonderful guitar of Jim Kirkpatrick.
What We Need From You?
Saturday Morning Beach Clean
We are repeating the morning beach clean before the doors open on the Saturday and it's a great way of blowing away some cobwebs too! Meeting at 10am and if you register in advance you'll get a Reduce Single Use T-shirt along with a wee Sailor Jerry to warm you up after!
In an effort to reduce the amount of cash floating about the building and to make the speed of service a bit quicker we are asking you to pre purchase as many of your bar tokens as possible in advance.. This will reduce the time it takes for you to but at the venue and get you to the bar a bit quicker. We will of course be accepting cash and cards during the weekend but pre order and you will be in the fast lane to collect yours at the door.
The merch has now closed for pre event delivery but you can still go online and order your merch now - remember it really does help us with the budgets so if you can buy something please do!
