A very special event for local residents to enjoy.
Saturday 14th July
Lingfest – a party in the park – is a very special one day event for Lingfield local residents of all ages to enjoy.
After the phenomenal success of last year’s event, Lingfest returns to Lingfield on Saturday 14th July, noon to 10:30pm.
With six bands on the main stage, a NEW 'Meridian Introduces...' stage showcasing local talent, free kids' entertainment, and local food and drink traders, Lingfest will be the community event of the summer.
Detailed planning is currently underway. Keep checking back here for more information about the event as it’s released.
Tickets on sale now!
Lingfest was free last year but this year our not-for-profit event will make a modest charge for some tickets as there are fewer grants available to us.
Adults will pay just £5 per ticket, plus an 80p booking fee per order. Tickets for children aged 16 and under and concessionary passes for OAPs* aged 60 and over will be free, and no tickets are needed for babies up to two years.
*OAP concessionary passes are not available online; they will be available from Lingfield and Dormansland Community Centre – either the Manager’s office or the Parish Clerk’s office. If seeking a concessionary pass, proof of age may be required. However, over 60's can choose to purchase a standard adult ticket if they prefer.Tickets for Lingfest 2018
