The deadline for booking is 6pm on Tuesday 24 January, but the offer could be withdrawn earlier should my allocation of 50 tickets become fully subscribed. Please be aware that only those who have purchased their tickets in advance will be able to avail themselves of this special price as no discounted tickets will be available on the night and anyone arriving without having booked would need to pay the full price. Should you have any queries regarding your booking, please e-mail info@... and not myself.

On Arrival:  Please note that you will not be allowed inside the foyer until 6.45pm. Go to the main ticket desk where your name(s) will be ticked off (no paper tickets will be issued), and you will be informed of your seat number(s).
