Jim Martin - CJB has misinterpreted the ticket structure, as has "Guest" 7 July 12.15.

An "All in One" ticket gives admission to all events, including evening Ham Marquee concerts.
A "Week" ticket gives admission to all events, except evening Ham Marquee concerts ("Week" ticket holders can buy individual Ham evening tickets at a discount).
There is also a Weekend ticket (same conditions as Week).
And a Bulverton in One ticket which gives admission to all Bulverton events, camping, bus ticket and some workshop passes).
There is also a family ticket offer.

If you have All in One or Week tickets, there are no supplements for workshops, LNE etc.

The reason for this variety is that it tries to cater for people with different interests.

Some people can't or won't buy "season" tickets, so individual event tickets are available - some in advance. And the campsite is available to non-season ticket holders (unlike the 1970s/80s). But of course without "organisation" - marquees, guests, staff who work all year round, and volunteers who work during the week - there would be no festival and therefore the fringe might not exist.
