UK Hols and Theatre


We’re struggling at the moment with the huge volumes of messages we’re getting from Forumites about coronavirus and the impact it’s having on their finances. We’re a small team and we’re doing our best to manage this spike in demand.

It’s an exceptionally tough time for the holiday, travel and events industry, and we are swamped with questions about your consumer rights around cancelled concerts, flights, hotels, theatre shows etc.

We’re a small team and we want to make sure Forumites are getting the answers they need accurately and quickly. So for the time being, we are hitting pause on this board and redirecting everyone to the MSE coronavirus guides that contain all the info we have – these guides are being constantly updated:
Coronavirus Help & Your Rights * Coronavirus Travel Rights

And of course, we have the Coronavirus Boards on the forum:
Coronavirus Support & Help * Coronavirus Travel Help & Info

Coronavirus: The latest from MSE


The MSE team is working extremely hard to keep the info we have about your travel rights, cancellation rights, sick pay (and more) up to date.

    Got two £85 tickets behind the stage, but I hear it is going to be a 360 degree stage (hence the name of the tour!) so should still be a good view.

    I just got 2 £55 standing tickets - really pleased, DH said it was the one thing he wanted to do in his lifetime!

    Hi

    Am trying to book tickets, but when I fill in the billing information, I can't find an option for UK. What does the UK come under?

    Thanks

    Ticketmaster has been hellish - seems to be totally down.

    However, managed to get Glasgow seats through this site and they're still available at the moment:

    MFW 2014 #41 = £26,100/£25,000

    I got mine from ticketmaster for Don Valley. Can I just ask, when standing, is it first in first to the front? I don't mind being further back, but I don't want to get squashed! Is there enough room for everyone?

    Haven't been to Don Valley but usually it's first in at the front (so the nutters - erm fans - queue for hours or even days!) and pick where you want to stand.

    Being at the front though there are a few issues with if you need to wee then you'll lose your space so options are a bit interesting ;)

    It's usually packed at the front and then from about half way back (especially towards the sides) there's usually loads of space - everyone presses to the front leaving loads behind ;)

    Yeah, get some free samples of incontinence pads. My mate did this at Glasto the other year.

    I thought you got your mates to hold their jumpers round you in a circle whilst you attempt to pee in a plastic pint glass without knocking it over so it spills onto your boots:rotfl:
