Question Ideal Home Exhibition, Belfast

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?

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.......

Unhappy

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?!?!

Smile ideal home

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

Where I live you would be lucky to be able to purchase a Belfast Telegraph never mind get one delivered!!

Going to buy tickets in advance, my only option!
