The Square to reunite for more all day events in 2020.
FOLLOWING the success of last summers one day event, The Square will return to Latton Park (Harlow Rugby Club) for further events in 2020.
The all-dayer last year, headlined by King Prawn, was the first time The Square name had been used since the venue’s closure (excluding the annual Xmas Eve party) and the response was so overwhelmingly positive that organisers have been encouraged to carry on with similar events this year.
But instead of a one-off, there are events scheduled for Spring, Summer and Autumn. Early-bird tickets for the Summer all-dayer sold out in under a week, prompting the announcement of the additional spring event to be brought forward ahead of schedule.
Promoter Adam Smith said ‘Immediately after last years event I was discussing with the Latton Park management the different options and ideas we had. Everyone in attendance had such a good time so I wanted to see what could be done to create more events and not have people waiting a whole 12 months to experience a bit of The Square’s magic. We settled on three dates across the year and are concentrating on one stage indoors so we don’t have to worry about the weather’
So far only one act has been announced.
“Last year we sold out the whole event before announcing who was playing. We worked on a diverse line up, covering as much of what The Square was about as we could. This summer we’ll have The Hot Rods headlining. As Eddie & The Hot Rods they played the last ever gig on stage at The Square. Their lead singer died back in October and they’ll be out playing show this year in his memory.
“They wanted to announce their 2020 tour dates in January so to be included in their listings we had to announce their appearance here.’
With the event taking place in doors the capacity will be reduced from last year so buying well in advance is advised. The ticket sales schedule is as follows:
Spring Early Bird Tickets – On Sale Now
Spring General Sale Tickets – Monday 2nd March
Summer Early Bird Tickets – Sold Out
Summer General Sale Tickets – Wednesday 1st April
Autumn – Dates TBC
