Aidan from Bestival HQ has this news in relation to the Ryde Slide. Ed
Everyone who entered the lottery already has their slot confirmed, so you can guarantee your slide by donating £5 now or pay £10 per slide or £30 for a family of four on the day*.
The forecast for Sunday is sunshine and fun and to add even more excitement, the fastest slider will win a pair of Bestival tickets, so what are you waiting for?
All donations go to local charities: Aspire, Inshore Rescue, Wight Brainy Bunch, Ryde Arena and The Waterside Trust.
Remember we don’t just want you to get your swimming caps on though, you’ll have to get your thinking caps on too, as we are running a fancy dress competition too, and you could win prizes including tickets to this year’s Future-themed Bestival and Bestival Ryde Slide t-shirts. And to top it all off, there will be a Bestival Soundsystem with DJs including Rob da Bank to keep the party atmosphere going all day long!
The event will run from 11am – 6pm on Sunday 17th July 2016 from the top of Union Street, Ryde, Isle of Wight.
