“Dunedin supports Festival by buying tickets”

“Dunedin supports Festival by buying tickets”

Just 14 days after the launch of the Otago Festival of the Arts brochure, Otago people have come out in force with their support of the Festival. Tickets sales to date are in excess of 1000, with all events across the board popular with Festival-goers.

This early indication of interest and action has Nicholas McBryde, Festival Director, confident the Festival will be a success.

“I am delighted that the programme is finding favour with Otago people. I know we have the mix right of music, theatre, dance and art – a showcase of New Zealand talent lined-up with the best the international circuit as to offer,” says McBryde.

Paul Dallimore, Otago Festival Trust Chairman, also believes the ticket prices have encouraged early action. “With average prices lowered by $5.00 compared with last Festival, the events are accessible. With international acts such as Amy X Neuburg’s average ticket price at $22.50, I know that we are bringing the best, at a reasonable price, to Dunedin.”

The early ticket buying trend bodes well for the lead up to the Festival but McBryde warns that with many events coming for just one night, people will have to continue to plan and book early for seats.

Brochures are available at Regent Ticketek, Meridian Shopping Mall, cafes, restaurants and retails outlets through the city and region. The full programme is available online at

Tickets are on sale nationwide now at Ticketek.
