According to information from the Festival box office in Sidmouth in July 2004, in an average year 2000 all-week season tickets are sold. In 2004, 2400 were sold together with 500 day tickets - so the number of season ticket holders on any given day would be in the range 2400 to maybe 2600. The arena will hold 6000 people but (so rumour has it) at one event as many as 9000 were squeezed in. Limits placed on all marquees are owing to Fire Regulations.
A problem likely in 2004 is 'overbooking' of popular events such as the LNE. The shambles of ticket sales in 2004 is discussed here.
