Passes popular as we head towards Festival

Festival three-day passes are proving popular, just a week into tickets going on sale for the August 10-12 long weekend.

Passes this year give access to all the day events in Ulumbarra Theatre, including sessions on Friday which are part of the Text Marks the Spot schools program.

The free Sam the Story Tram for youngsters has booked out, and the Good Taste Tram has just one seat left so please check for availability via the Capital website.

We'll keep you up to date here with how sales for the feature events are tracking, and also the workshops with Andrew Nette on writing crime, and Ali Alizadeh on writing poetry.

If you have any queries about the program, please do contact us at or the Capital box office during office hours, on (03) 5434 6100.
