Scarborough’s TOP SECRET Blues Festival is a not-for-profit organization. They receive no public funding, no arts council grants, and no large scale sponsorship. This means they must pay their way and cover the entire cost of the festival from ticket sales and other fund raising efforts. Chief among these is the ‘Top Secret / World Famous’ raffle with many top quality prizes, including a luxury hotel break, multi-CD Packages, cases of wine, etc. Please bear this in mind when ordering your tickets and throughout the Festival. They are hoping to raise a substantial amount in 2016. This may be essential if they are to invest in their future. Ticket sales alone are never enough.
