TICKETS are now on sale for this year’s Thai festival which returns to Warwick racecourse for the weekend of July 9-10.
Last year’s event, delayed until September by Covid, was a smash hit with thousands descending on the racecourse for the weekend.
This year returns to a trusted format with Warwick Rotary Club partnering with Magic of Thailand, who bring all the traders, dancers, musicians and monks and set up at the racecourse bringing the sights and sounds of the orient to the town.
Tickets are on sale for £5 each in advance on-line from agents Skiddles at http://skiddle.com/e/36003015 , or people can buy on the gate.
The festival will be open from 10.30am to 6pm on Saturday and 10.30am to 5pm on Sunday, with the racecourse hosting Buddhist monks, Thai boxers, dancers and musicians, with plenty of stalls selling Thai food, drinks, spices, crafts, and massages.
Buddhist Monks will start the festival off with their ceremonies, and the traditional reception of gifts from the traders.
On stage throughout the day will be a top class presentation of Thai culture, with dancing, lady boys, music, Thai boxing and cookery demonstrations.
The racecourse is next to the town centre and parking is handy.
The event is supported by Warwick Castle, Kia cars and Tourism Authority of Thailand, with Warwick District Council advising on delivering a safe event for everyone. Rotary proceeds go to charitable causes.
