Afternoon all. If anyone ends up with a completely spare ticket for this on Wednesday night gig they cannot shift , and they would like to recoup £40 for it rather than see it go dead , drop me a message. I live 5 min walk from AG so could come and meet you before with cash easy.

appreciate face value of these are £100 an upwards , but that’s a bit rich for me. I’ve been to events before where someone drops out last minute and I have had tickets go totally unused as couldn’t find a taker at short notice. 

So if anyone finds themselves in a similar scenario give me a shout. I can slightly sweeten that deal by letting you double park my car ion the drive,  so you would have a parking space also if driving 

appreciate this offer looks pants now, but might hold some appeal Wednesday afternoon if you get a drop out late in day

Does anyone know if parking will be still available on the Ashton Vale industrial estate?   Always park on the main stretch through the industrial estate & was hoping it will be available for the concert. As I see parking information on the website states that local roads will be closed off. Any help appreciated. Cheers

Another question, I hope someone can answer, how much of Winterstoke Road do they close off? Looks like I am on taxi duty and wondered where to meet them.

Sainsburys car park is the designated pick up point

Depending on where you are coming from, Ashton Drive (not via Winterstoke Road) might be a good option

Thanks for the replies. Was planning on Ashton Drive, coming out on to Winterstoke Road by The Robins and turning right.

The promoter was very late sending the tickets to the club who then got them processed and sent out as soon as possible, by 1st class post last Friday.

The woman i spoke with on the phone said there had been an issue with the first batch of tickets they had received as well. 

 

I know mine won't be here in time as walked past the postie after she'd gone past our house and nothing in the post box, so I'll be calling up for re-prints in the morning.
