Frequently asked Questions
Ticketing Structure Explained:
Glimmer operates a tiered ticket system. This simply means that our ticket prices start cheaper for the early birds and increase as time goes on. The tiers of pricing are set when the festival goes on sale and will progress through the tiers as we get closer to the event.
The sooner you buy, the cheaper it is.
Glimmer has always aimed to provide an opportunity for larger families and children friendship groups to be able to enjoy a day out together. We therefore have limited early bird family tickets (1adult and 2 kids) and the PARTY ticket (for 6), which cater towards this.
Tickets are only available online HERE
If there are any remaining tickets on the day of the Event , they will also be available to purchase online.
All e-tickets will have the name of the purchaser on them. You may gift your ticket to a friend or family member. ALL tickets have a UNIQUE barcode that is scanned upon entry to the festival. Once it has been scanned that barcode number will become void meaning the ticket cannot be re-used.
You can also add additional festival admission tickets or extras such as VIP upgrades & bus tickets from liberation square to the venue and back into town at designated times.
Ticket price includes all shows however workshops must be booked to secure your place.

GENERAL EVENT FAQS
When and where is the Festival
Glimmer Fusion Festival will be held at Royal jersey Showground in Trinity Jersey on the 11th of February 2023. Just at the start of half term!
What is the recommended age:
The ideal age for some of the shows is 5 to 12 years. However here is plenty for the younger kids to enjoy too and certainly lots for the older kids and adults as including the amazing Troy the Magician and all the lively music and bands! The acts and performances for the day have been designed to appeal to adults as well a children so all ages are welcome for a fantastic day out together!
How Long Is the festival available for:
Glimmer Fusion Festival will be on from 10am to 8pm on Saturday 11th February 2023. No entry or re-entry after 6.30pm.
Why is there a morning and afternoon ticket and what is the difference?
Both the morning and afternoon ticket entitle you to entry to the festival and you are welcome to stay for as long as you like with each ticket.
The morning ticket anticipates that you will arrive to see the morning shows of Brainiac Live and The Mighty Kids Beatbox Comedy Show. The first show starts at 10:30am. These shows will be available in the afternoon as well.
If you arrive early with an afternoon ticket, you will be allowed to enter, but depending on the capacity of the main theatre room we would need to prioritise those with morning tickets.
Similarly those with morning tickets are welcome to stay for as long as they wish, however the afternoon ticket holders will have priority to see the repeat afternoon shows of Brainiac Live and The Mighty Kids Beatbox Comedy Show.
The rationale for morning and afternoon tickets is simply to manage crowd capacity and to try and ensure that everyone gets a chance to see the main acts.
Food and Drink Rules
Food and drink is prohibited except for baby food. Please note, glass is not permitted.
There will be a variety of food and drink outlets offering a range of soft and alcoholoc drink options available at the event. The alcoholic drinks will only be allowed to be consumed within the dedicated food and drink area (near the music stage) and cannot be taken around the rest of the festival site.
