Last chance tickets

So we've scrounged together the last of the tickets. There are forty eight in all. When they are gone we're at absolute capacity. Please don't turn up at the gate looking for a ticket, there will be none. Let me also stress; don't mail me, we are at absolute capacity. The castle is full, our insurance will cover no more people. This is a hard limit. We are at absolute capacity.

Right then, having said all of that. There are 48 shiney tickets available for your purchase. Quickly now, max of two per burner.

Submissions are Closed for 2013

Art and performance submissions are now closed. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has submitted an idea for a project. We really enjoyed reading through each of them. You are what makes this possible every year. Those of you who have yet to hear back from us will do so within the coming few days.

2013 Tickets are live

In case you didn't notice, please refresh your browser. There's a discrete little link up there on the left of Tullamore. Silently screaming ascent. I exercise only that authority which you have afforded me and no more. Click on it there and make a small purchase. Read the lovely words and join in the fray.

Good luck to you.

Tickets Delay

So there'll be a delay in the launch of the tickets. We're currently awaiting vendor approval for the online sales. Hopefully this won't drag out too much longer and tickets should be available today. We'll be announcing when they are here and in the various facebook groups ( join to get notifications ;) )

In the meantime please remain calm, good times are coming. So, yeah, we're on burner time already, welcome home. )'(
