    Ideal Home Exhibition, Belfast

    Ideal Home Exhibition, Belfast 23rd Aug 05 at 5:07 PM
    The Ideal Home Exhibition is on in the Kings Hall, Belfast from 7 - 11 September 2005. I was wondering if anyone knew how to get cheap or free tickets for this event?

    I went one other year and a very kind gentleman heard us being asked for 2 admission fees, I think about £10 - £14, and he tapped my hubby on the shoulder and said to my hubby, "sure have these". It was 2 free tickets and he had more free tickets in his hand and used free tickets to get himself and a few friends in.

    Anyone know how to get free tickets or reduced tickets?

    Normally I 'make' the entrance fee back in coupons etc for groceries.

    As main sponsors, the Belfast Telegraph and Sunday Life usually print vouchers for cheap tickets or two for one offers. I used to know a guy who worked for a PR company and he distributed promotional posters for the Exhibition to various outlets. He would leave some free tickets as a 'thank-you' for displaying the posters. Might be worthwhile asking in any shop where you see a poster displayed. After all, if you don't ask.......

    I went to all the shops in the town where I live and they do not get the Belfast Telegraph!! I travelled 10 miles and I went to every shop that sold newspapers and any that sold it were sold out. Not a happy bunny!!

    What was in todays paper, curiosity is killing me?!?!

    if you get your Belfast Telegraph delivered from your newsagent
    this counts as home delivery so you get a free voucher for Ideal Home.
    home delivery costs about 20p extra per week at least it did when I last used many years ago
