Am I going blind? Neither the post, or the poster reproduction, say where this wondrous event is taking place. Might be helpful if we knew where the tickets gained us admittance to. :roll:

Oops, just re-read it. Too early on a Saturday, sorry. :roll:

Well I couldn't go but you can have a fiver from me for the ticket I would have bought if I wasn't away buying £11 pints in Leeds (don't ask...).

£55 to go!

Sorry, Allan, but I'm afraid you will have to explain that. Makes that London look cheap.

Paid £17 entry to a beer festival then bought 8 tokens for £20, each one of which was exchanged for one third of a pint.

£37 for 2 and two thirds pints actually comes to £13.87 per pint, my mental arithmetic on the day clearly wasn't very good.

Jeez...
