I'm going to the first preview, my friend queued and got priority tickets! Can't wait!
Would your friend happen to be Christine?
My friend got there about 8:45am, there was about 30 people in front of her, I joined her about 10:30 & the queue was down & across the road. We got our tickets about 12:15, went for a wander & came back 2 hours later & the queue was still down / across the road & round the corner, completely crazy! I did voice the opinion that I felt sorry for those at the back for having to stand there so long & hoped they got a ticket, I heard later around 50 people were turned away
So happy we got there when we did, priority tickets mean we are let in around 15 mins before doors open, kinda wish I had been one of the first 7 people, as they got BoM bags & coffee table books, but I dont think I could have stayed out overnight, it was cold enough as it was.
Oh & the free hot chocolate from Pret was a nice little marketing gimmick from them
Chasing the music, trying to get home.......
