Yes, we have a gathering indeed! If anyone else wants to join us I suggest you book soon. Actually, it occurred to me that I might have got a better seat booking by phone than I did booking online. Don't know if that is true. The front seats seems to be reserved for wheelchhair users.
Hmm... Reserved for wheelchairs? That is vvery tempting... I will think of it carefully... I don't think I'll make it, but if I could convince someone to travel with me, it is certainly very tempting...
When I tried online for a ticket, to collect from box office was the only option offered. Like yourself I wanted the ticket sent to me so I rang the box office and was fortunate to get through quickly.
According to the 'last few tickets' section of the Corn Exchange website, the concert is sold out - tickets have been on sale for less than 2 weeks!! You may still be able to pick up the odd single ticket at the very rear if you try the online booking system
Since I worked on the monday in question I was not able to phone in working hours, so coulsn't book until later. I assumed that I would then only be able to do so online. And I didn't want to wait - tickets were selling fast.
So I went for that even though I would have preferred the ticket posted to me.
Many thanks to the couple that returned their tickets to the box office. I hope that the addition of Gini and I to the HWI list, now 13, will be improved when the Irish contingent add their names to the list. (Eugene?)
