  1. @ewebber – thanks for posting, I’d love to see this. Are you interested?

  2. @saladefolle extreme booking fail at the moment both online then over the phone, trying to get tickets but computer says no

  3. I finally got tickets, after 30mins of messing around, several attempts online and over the phone, being accused of not having money available on 2 credit cards, computers crashing and a call back from the box office as well as a call from my bank’s fraud team assuming something fishy was going on. Hackney Empire’s response was that it’s ok because I got tickets in the end. Not impressed.
