Chasing away the winter blues!

Free footy tickets on offer from Brightlingsea Regent

Fifty free tickets are being offered by Brightlingsea Regent Football Club for games taking place in December and January to help kick off the town’s forthcoming 2023 WinterFest.

The football club has already shown its support for WinterFest by having the festival’s logo on its away shirts and now the generous offer of the free tickets will give a further boost to the bond between the two popular Brightlingsea organisations.

Tom Doherty, commercial manager for Brightlingsea Regent FC said: “I am pleased that, in the midst of a cost of living crisis and the forthcoming Christmas period, we have unanimously agreed to donate a total of 50 free tickets in partnership with WinterFest.

“We are giving away 25 tickets for the Carshalton game on December 17th and 25 more tickets for the Bishops Stortford game on January 2nd. Kids get in free, so the value of the donated tickets is around £600.

“This will give local people the chance to come and enjoy the great action and atmosphere at the two games and will help reinforce our valued link with WinterFest.”

WinterFest crew member Eamonn Lorimer who organised the free tickets offer in conjunction with the football club said: “This is brilliant news from Brightlingsea Regent FC and we are very grateful to them for their generosity. The free tickets are bound to be popular and, as well as attracting football fans, will also give the opportunity to people who wouldn’t normally go to a football match to experience a new family fun activity and support their local team.”

The tickets are available to people living in Brightlingsea or Thorrington.
