ANNOUNCES NEW VENUE FOR 2016 & TICKET PRICES HELD FOR THE 7TH YEAR IN A ROW
the recent news that Radcliffe Civic, the venue for all 8 previous SOS
Festivals, is under threat of closure, we have of course been reviewing the
situation closely. In the light of this, the decision has been taken to
relocate the festival with effect from 2016 to an alternative venue which is
the Longfield Suite, Prestwich, Manchester.
Mark Appleton explains.... "Having talked & corresponded with the local
council I'm as satisfied as I can be that the closure of Radcliffe Civic
will go ahead in April as recently suggested. For me it was a clear &
necessary decision to immediately secure the future of our event by
relocating & the Longfield represents a brilliant choice. Although we loved
working from the previous venue, the Longfield in fact affords us various
advantages with Prestwich tram station directly opposite, less than one mile
to the motorway network & a Premier Inn within easy walking distance, as
well as continuing benefits such as ample free parking. Also, those who
sweated out the heatwave with us during the 2014 event at Radcliffe will
understand our joy in discovering that our new venue has air-conditioning!"
tickets already bought for 2016 remain valid & the new venue is also looking
into some excellent drinks promos for us to offer our audience next year.
delighted to announce that whilst our previous venue is to be demolished to
make way for affordable housing, we are in fact continuing our policy of an
affordable festival & so our prices are held for a 7th year in a row at £10
per day for Saturday or Sunday & £15 for a weekend ticket. Friday night also
remains at £5. Tickets are on-sale now.

venue is to close.
15th Oct : News is breaking today
that our venue for SOS Festival (Radcliffe Civic) is set for
demolition/re-development in 2016, prior to our next event. Although the
re-development is not 100% certain, as always we're on the case & a
completely viable local alternative venue (should we need it) is already
reserved for our festival, within easy reach of hotels which already
service our audiences/bands' needs, with similarly good parking
availability & transport links. All is good!
