Blues Festival Package
We are very please to be able to offer the special Blues
Festival package in conjunction with
Event Services Limited for 2010. This will include 2 nights bed & breakfast, travel and weekend festival
ticket and full details will be posted soon here at the
Event Services Limited Website.
The cheapest way to get here is probably by Ferry from Heysham, Liverpool, Dublin Belfast or Troon in Scotland.
To check ferries and book online (and save a bit too) visit SteamPacket.com
Flights are available from City of London Airport, Gatwick, Manchester, Liverpool, Blackpool as well as other airports. If you book in advance tickets are definitely cheaper as usual but probably the best price, if you are travelling from the South anyway, is from Luton airport - again, booked in advance.
