TUESDAY 30 JULY: Just 9 days to go and the Battle ‘Frenzy’ has well & truly started in earnest. The ‘Big News’ for today is that flowers for many of the floats arrive tomorrow (Wednesday) so let the late nights begin..
Tickets are still available to purchase 24/7 online (http://www.battleofflowers.com/tickets) but a ticket outlet opened today on the Esplanade, St Helier (opposite Jersey Tourism office) and will be open daily between 10am-4pm
If you and your friends are at loose end next Thursday 8 August and looking to celebrate Battle in style, then why not join us for lunch in our hospitality marquee – we still have a limited number of tickets available. Interested? Then please call Battle HQ on (01534) 730178 for details.
Finally – for now – anyone who has expressed an interest in helping us out on Thursday 8 & Friday 9 August to act as a marshal, we are still on the lookout. It is a voluntary role but a small ‘Thank You’ payment of £20 per parade is made and a packed lunch is provided. All marshals must be over 16 years old. Again, please call Battle HQ soonest on (01534) 730178.
