Fewer than 40 days until the inaugural Capital Crime, and we’re very excited.
You might have seen that we’ve reduced our ticket prices to £150 for a weekend pass and £80 for a day pass. We believe this is key to making the festival a truly accessible, mass participation event. Unsurprisingly, at these prices tickets are selling fast and once this tranche is gone, we will be sold out.
Unfortunately, sold out really does mean sold out.
The capacity rules of the Grand Connaught Rooms mean people can’t come and hang out at the bars without a pass, so if you know anyone who’s planning to do a ‘Harrogate’ please note and advise them they will be refused entry by venue security.
You might also have noticed that we’ve launched the DHH Literary Agency New Voices Award, aimed at helping the next generation of writing talent.
You can find details of the competition here:
We’ve designed and built a system that enables Capital Crime pass holders to vote on the entries, building a sense of community and enabling readers to have a say in the discovery of the next generation of talent.
As always, if you have any questions or thoughts you’d like to share, please feel free to contact David, Lizzie or Adam.
We look forward to seeing you for the opening night cocktails on Thursday 26th September. Not long now!
