We apologise for the delay in opening ticket sales. We will, of course, extend the "earlybird" booking period accordingly.
As some of those who danced or played at EIFF 2018 may be aware, St Catherine's lettings are now out-sourced to an external agency. We have received a quote for the hire of the main venue that far exceeds the rate of inflation and our wildest imaginings. The quote would make the festival unviable.
Whilst we've made progress in the negotiations with the school, a couple of important issues remain unsettled.
As it happens, our fliers had gone to print before we received the quote. They indicate what we believed to be the justifiable and necessary ticket price for EIFF 2019.
