THE price of a ticket for this year’s Rock on the Hill charity gala hosted by Sir William and Lady McAlpine has been cut.
The £25 reduction to £125 is designed to boost numbers at the event, which will take place at the couple’s Fawley Hill estate on the evening of Friday, May 16, before the Fawley Hill Vintage Festival weekend.
The ticket price includes valet parking, use of the fairground, a champagne reception and a buffet dinner with wine cooked by Paul Clerehugh, chef-proprietor of the Crooked Billet in Stoke Row, and VIP access with McAlpine hospitality to the festival, which will take place over the following two days.
The entertainment will include performances by BBC Radio Berkshire presenter Mike Read, Sam Brown’s ukulele band, award-winning Elvis tribute act Ben Portsmouth and skiffle player Chas McDevitt. After-dinner tickets to see Portsmouth and the other artists are on offer for £45 each.
Lady McAlpine said: “We had received slight concerns that people thought the tickets were too expensive so we have cut the price. Those people who have already bought tickets will be refunded the £25 difference.
