[mod note RP] Hi Jim - I've merged your post with the already-existing thread on this topic - worth checking back through it as there are some suggestions that may save you some money if planning to go :)

We will be going for all 3 days Tickets came yesterday £150 for 2 of us. Exorbitant prices? Yes. But still a brilliant show. It just means we will spend less at the show on bits and pieces. We stay in a hotel and treat the week-end as part of our holiday. Whether I will still do this once I retire who knows.

Still only (!) £12 if you pre-book. :wink: You can put the saving towards that oh-so-tasty lunch! :barf:

I'll be there tomorrow. You never know, this might be the year that proper classics outnumber moderns. :roll:
