Jersey West Show ticket prices increased due to lack of sponsorship

The organisers of Jersey's West Show have increased the cost of tickets due to a lack of sponsorship.

The biennial show attracted 15,000 people in 2010 but organisers said it had been hit by "difficult economic circumstances".

Adult ticket prices have increased from £7 to £10 and children and pensioners from £4 to £5.

Organisers added they had invested in two headline acts in the hope of attracting people to the event.

'Big attraction'

Andrew Le Brun said: "We've struggled along with lots of others this year and sponsorship has been down.

"We made a decision that because of the difficult economic circumstances that we would bring in another big attraction.

"As a result of that and perhaps as a result of reduced sponsorship we've unfortunately had to pull our ticket prices up."

The show's two headliners for Saturday and Sunday are the Diggerland Dancing Diggers Stunt Team and Rockin' Horse Productions Equestrian Stunt Team.
