Local Hero at Chichester FEstival, October and November 2022

LOCAL HERO, CHICHESTER FESTIVAL THEATRE, UK
8 October – 19 November

We’re excited to announce that David Greig and Mark Knopfler’s Local Hero will be staged at Chichester Festival Theatre (CFT), running from 8th October - 19th November 2022 as part of this year’s Festival Season.

David Grieg’s book, based on Bill Forsyth’s iconic 1983 film, features new music and lyrics by Mark. The production will be staged in the 300-seat Minerva Theatre. We anticipate that it will be very popular so availability for the run will be extremely limited.

We are delighted to offer Mark Knopfler fans the exclusive opportunity to enter a ballot for tickets to one of the two Local Hero Fan nights - Thursday 27th October and Friday 4th November.


Registering for the ballot:
The ballot for the opportunity to purchase two tickets is now open to registrations via the CFT website, and closes at midday on 15th March.

When registering, you will need to choose which one of the two performances you would like to attend, at a maximum of 2 tickets.

If you have additional access requirements please state them on your ballot entry so that the Box Office team can handle your booking directly.

Successful entrants will be contacted on 16th March with a link to the presale and details of how to book. If you have not received an email by 6pm on 16th March, you should assume you have not been awarded seats in the ballot.
BALLOT REGISTRATION


Local Hero Fan Nights Presale:
The fan presale then opens on Thursday 17th March at 10am for the successful entrants.
Tickets are priced at £31 and £47. The seat selection will be first come, first served.


General Sale:
If you are not drawn in the ballot, there is another chance to purchase tickets when public booking for all performances opens at 9am on Saturday 19th March. Any unclaimed tickets for the two fan nights will also be released for sale at this time.
 
Anyone who misses out in the initial booking period should continue to keep an eye on the website for ticket releases and sign up to the CFT mailing list for updates about the show and any further presentations.

    Thursday 3rd March - Ballot registration opens for the chance to buy tickets to two Local Hero Fan nights - 27th Oct and 4th Nov
    Tuesday 15th March - Midday: ballot registration closes
    Wednesday 16th March - By 6pm: Successful ballot entrants emailed link and booking details
    Thursday 17th March - 10am: Local Hero Fan presale opens for successful ballot entrants
    Saturday 19th March - 9am: public booking opens for all performances

Yes, just received the email. Although it's being staged not far away from me I'm in no particular rush to see it again...

At least Guy in particular won't have far to travel to help set things up if nearby?!

"Mark will not be appearing personally at any performance".

So will the two "fan nights" be any different from a normal performance night?

In short - no! They've just allocated some performances to MK fans with regards tickets

I really enjoyed seeing Local Hero in Edinburgh, but I'm sorry we won't be attending this time.

Yes we both thoroughly enjoyed the show in Edinburgh and being with you both and dmg, but we both feel it's best to leave our good memories intact.   :)

Would you attend it if was in London?

No, particularly not in London.  We just want to remember the show as it was in Edinburgh -  a lovely experience.   :)

I'm of the same thoughts.  I'd rather attend in Chichester than London but after attending twice in Edinburgh and having a fantastic time with the gang I just don't see the point this time.

Maybe they'll get a bit of a shock at the take up, or lack of, ticket sales this time around.  The initial excitement has dissipated after the long delay too.

Think we (superval & dmg) are of the opinion that we have seen it in Edinburgh where it had such an appeal but we are not fussed about Chichester or even London

I'd quite like to go to Chichester, especially if there was the prospect of an RAH style meet-up with all you guys at one of the fan nights, but I'm going to Amsterdam to see Jason Isbell in November so the prospect of two trips in one month.

Chichester should be easy to get to from Gatwick Airport.

Im think in going on Saturday 15th October with some Spanish friends. That's one month before the Isbell concert ;)

Just as easy perhaps for you to fly with Logan Air into Southampton then train to Chichester?
