Why do you have to have a ticket?

has placed on the hall. We want everyone who has a ticket to be able to get in and enjoy themselves.
Where can I buy tickets and when?
Tickets are on sale from 11am in 11th December 2017 at Foyers Stores, Camerons’ Tearoom and the
Whitebridge Hotel.
Why are tickets not free?
By paying £2 AND LEAVING YOUR NAME, we hope that residents will only take the tickets they need. If
the tickets were free, they might not be used, or folk might be tempted to take a couple spare.
Are there any concessions on the £2 charge?
No. Everyone pays £2 for a ticket. Children, Seniors, Unwaged, etc. all pay £2.

and some will be meat free. There is no additional charge for the Stovies.
Who is paying for the Band?

enjoy themselves and get to know their neighbours. If you have visitors up for Christmas they can also
attend if you buy them a ticket.
