Summer Festival 2014 – News

Happy New Year!

With the New Year often comes “resolutions”; well we intend to keep ours and make the 2014 Summer Festival the best yet. To ensure that it will be, we’ve completely re-vamped and re-formatted the weekend to allow our guests to enjoy themselves even more. Hopefully the changes will allow them to bring along more of their friends. This is a year of big changes, the first being that we’ve flipped the nights so that Friday night is the Comedy night and Saturday the formal, Black Tie Ball:

 Laughter-on-the-Lawn     Friday 20 June        Doors:              19:00

Summer Ball                      Saturday 21 June   Doors:              19:00 for 19:45

 

Summer Ball (Saturday)

The second big change is that we have booked a great Headlining band: The Collection http://www.thecollectionlive.co.uk/ featuring Keavy Lynch from B*witched. B*witched enjoyed huge success in both Europe and North America between 1998 and 2000, releasing two albums and eight singles, all of which made the UK Top 20. Their first four singles, “C’est la Vie”, “Rollercoaster”, “To You I Belong” and “Blame It on the Weatherman”, all reached number one in the UK Singles Chart. They’ve also enjoyed more recent success on the “Reunion” TV program and tour. Fronted by Keavy, The Collection play a great mix of music for all tastes and so we’re set for a great evening.

A further change is that in response to feedback we have engaged a new caterer too.

So it’s a new night, new band, new caterers and hopefully some new friends to share what’s set to be a great evening.

Remember once you’ve purchased your ticket the only expenses are photographs, and drinks!

We have been able to maintain the cost at £60 / ticket. A great value for money, great night out and for most .. no taxi cost!

The sale of tickets for the Summer Ball will be on Saturday 8 March from 09:30 at the Town Hall, Ivinghoe and thereafter from the usual outlets. As in previous years, we are offering the opportunity to spread the cost of the event, with an initial (non-refundable) deposit (£20) payable upon booking the tickets, and the balance (£40) payable by mid-May. We anticipate high demand for tickets and so we encourage you to book early and take advantage of the deposit scheme.

Laughter-on-the-Lawn (Friday)

Following the fantastic success of ‘Laughter-on-the-Lawn’ 2013 we are repeating the event with a different line up of comedians but this year on the Friday night rather than Saturday. Our event will be associated with the “GET STUFFED Tring Comedy Festival (Tringe)” – the Tring Comedy Festival extends to Ivinghoe! What better way to wind down from the rigours of the week than to come along to hear some great comedians, with some friends, a few drinks and food?

More information about the performers will be released nearer the event but we can guarantee a well-known compere, headline act and some up and coming stars of the future … make sure you can say you saw them first in Ivinghoe! All that for just £15.

Our website will be updated with full details as they become available for both events.

 

Summer Festival Weekend

As with previous years there will be a number of other events running across the weekend to make the use of the venue. Please refer to local groups and organisations for further details.

 

Christmas Tree

We would like to thank Ivinghoe & Pitstone WI, Ivinghoe Town Hall Management Committee, and The Kings Head (Ivinghoe) for their generous support towards the planting of a permanent Christmas Tree on the corner of Ivinghoe Lawn.
