Tickets Information & Pricing

Tickets to the 2020 Big Red Bash SOLD OUT in October 2019. On 3rd April 2020 the 2020 Big Red Bash was cancelled due to COVID 19 and all ticket holders were given the option to hold onto their tickets which automatically become valid for 2021, or alternatively request a refund. We are giving all ticket holders up until 30 September 2020 to request a refund after which date tickets revert back to the normal Terms and Conditions which are non refundable.

As the 2021 event was sold out we are only able to sell new tickets after we have provided refunds to ticket holders requesting them.

We will therefore be releasing and selling limited tickets on the following upcoming dates:-

Tuesday 4th August 2020
Wednesday 7th October 2020

The number of tickets available will be dependent on the number of tickets refunded during this time.

Details of tickets available for sale for 2021 are outlined below.
