McFly - top act at the Castle Concerts
McFly - top act at the Castle Concerts

More than 1,000 tickets for this year’s Rochester Castle Concerts were sold in the first two hours of the box office opening on Friday.

Sixty per cent of the 1,300 tickets snapped up were sold online.

Medway Council events manager Carl Madjitey said: “I’m not surprised that tickets for this year’s acts are selling so quickly, and advise customers to book early for what is sure to be a very special Castle Concerts season.”

First in the queue at the Medway Visitor Information Centre was Paul Waterhouse, from Shorne.

Accompanied by his daughters Kirsty Hillocks, from Cliffe Woods, and Caroline Godfrey, from Strood, Paul was eager to snap up tickets for top boy band McFly and the Castle Proms.

The McFly concert will be a special night out for the family, and the tickets are a special treat for Paul’s granddaughter Jess, who’s an avid fan.

Paul said: “I saw one of the band at an airport recently and didn’t ask for an autograph for Jess, but I think this will more than make up for it”

This year’s line-up also includes The Counterfeit Stones, endorsed by Sir Mick Jagger himself and Castle Concerts favourite Jools Holland and His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra with special guest Dave Edmunds.

Tickets for all four concerts are available in person at The Central Theatre Box Office, The Brook Theatre Box Office and Medway Visitor Information Centre, by phone on 01634 338338 or online at www.castleconcerts.co.uk
