Friday 11th March 2011
We've been informed that Chesterfield Borough Council has agreed to a small increase in ticket prices at the Pomegranate Theatre and the Winding Wheel.
The 5% increase accommodates the VAT increase introduced in January 2011 which is payable on all show tickets and helps to fund the ongoing running costs of both venues.
The Council's Cabinet made the decision last week following a review of fees and charges. The new prices will come into operation in August 2011 when the autumn/winter programme in published.
Councillor Ray Russell, Leader of the Council (left), said: "The Winding Wheel and Pomegranate are very important to the Borough and its cultural offer to residents and visitors. The increase in ticket prices is modest and it ensures that the Council can continue to operate these first class facilities."
"Our prices remain very competitive with tickets from as little as £5.70 and a range of concessions for under 16s, children, senior citizens, students and people in receipt of benefits.
"I would invite all residents to have a look at the venues programme and see what we have to offer. I believe we have something in there for everyone."
