It has been decided, this year, to implement a ‘Friends of the Lanercost Festival’ scheme. This was floated during the 2015 Festival, when opinion was canvassed to ascertain support for the scheme.

On the basis of the support expressed, it has been decided to go ahead with the scheme. Becoming a ‘Friend’ of the Festival entails the expenditure of £30 per person. The ‘Friend’ is issued with a card bearing his/her name, which entitles the holder to attend any ticketed event in the Festival.
