One of the last festivals of the summer, On Blackheath
takes place this weekend (9-10 September) and is offering VIP tickets for the first time.
Priced at £100 for the day or £175 for the weekend, the hospitality tickets include access to a guest area with a separate bar and toilet facilities, and two drinks tokens per person. There will also be a dedicated entrance point for easier access into the festival.
Headline music acts include Travis, Metronomy, The Libertines and Jake Bugg, but there is also a big focus on food with demonstrations from celebrity chefs, a cookery school and plenty of pop-up food stalls.
MasterChef finalists Saira Hamilton and Juanita Hennessey have teamed up to become ‘Ham & Hen’, and will lead the John Lewis Cookery School. Visitors can sign up for free sessions on the day and learn how to cook great seasonal dishes with standard home appliances.
Hospitality tickets would also work well as a gift for clients with families, as the festival is geared at making sure everyone enjoys it – whatever their age. Picture storytelling stages, an activity zone for face painting and craft workshops, and soft play areas for under-fives.
Regular tickets are also available for £49.50 per day, or £90 for the full weekend.
