VIP rockers are preparing to pack out the Green as tickets for this year’s star-studded Lytham Proms fly out of the door.

All the tables for this year’s Status Quo VIP marquee have been bought just a month after going on sale, with over 4,000 general admission tickets also snapped up across the two-day extravaganza.

The veteran rockband are headlining the first night of this year’s Lytham Proms, with Welsh songstress Katherine Jenkins taking to the stage the following day.

And the rush for tickets has delighted event organisers Cuffe and Taylor.

A spokesman said: “The fact the VIP marquee has already sold out for Status Quo is true testament to their continued popularity.

“Last year we were still selling tables up to the week before, the fact that we have sold out of tables some seven months before is amazing – we cannot believe it.

“We release 1,000 tickets on each of the ticket price bands, but in response we’ve had to release more tickets in the early booking stages so people were not left disappointed for Christmas.”

A total of 10,000 tickets are available across the weekend of August 5 and 6, and with 2,000 tickets sold for each night the event is now almost half way to a sell-out for both artists.

Robert Silverwood, vice-chairman of Lytham Enterprise Group, said: “It will be amazing for the town, especially if people arrive a little bit earlier and go for a wander around Lytham.

“It would be good to see people on the day arriving and having the whole town to explore.”

Anyone who wants to sample the VIP marquee for Katherine Jenkins - catered by the Clifton Arms Hotel and Rowleys Catering - is urged to get tickets quick as only a handful remain.

Until April 30 tickets for both nights cost £63, with individual tickets priced at £32.50 for Quo and £35 for Katherine Jenkins.

Tickets can be purchased from Lowther Pavilion or the See Tickets website.
