ADVANCE tickets for this weekend's ale and music festival will be valid all weekend, organisers have announced.
Visitors to Rotherham Real Ale and Music Festival 2018 who have already bought their tickets can choose to use them on Thursday, Friday or Saturday, despite designated days being printed on them.
The change was announced after the "Beast from the East" weather system brought blizzards to Rotherham on Wednesday and Thursday.
Festical organiser John Hyslop said: "It would be a shame if someone had bought a ticket for Thursday and then couldn't make it here because of the bad weather.
"So if they would prefer to wait until Friday or Saturday before visiting, we will gladly accept their ticket on that day."
