IT’S the last few days to buy tickets for the Fairport Convention festival at the cheaper advanced prices.

The reduced price of £105 for weekend tickets for the whole three-day festival ends tomorrow (Friday).

The festival runs from Thursday August 8 to Saturday August 10.

From June 1 to July 31 the price then goes up to £110, and after July 31 to £115.

Alice Cooper has been announced as headline act on the first day of this year’s Fairport’s Cropredy Convention.

He will appear on Thursday, August 8 at the three-day folk festival near Chipping Warden, heading up a wide range of top acts. It is likely to be his only UK appearance this year at the festival where he will be bringing a unique rock sound.

Performing on Friday, August 9 will be The Levellers and 10CC, always popular musicians at the event, while Saturday night sees Nik Kershaw performing prior to a three-hour set from Fairport Convention.
