CONFIDENTIAL MEMO

Andrew

Thank you for your recent memo. Don’t despair. Help is on the way.

Those kindly people at The Times newspaper have made us an offer we can’t refuse. Today’s edition has an offer: four top tickets for The Lord of the Rings at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane for just £99 (usually £50 each during previews – £60 each after the opening). Offer valid for previews May 22 to June 16, excluding May 27, 28, and June 3, 8, 10 and 14. Maybe we can sell the two extra tickets to some of our “friends” for £50 each. They’ll never know.

Just call 0870 162 0299 and quote ‘The Times Preview Offer’.

Of course there’s a booking fee of £1.50 per ticket and additional seats (to your four) can be bought for £32.50. But this whinger believes this is a very good offer. So Andrew, just relax into your stalls seat and let the whinging commence.

  1. anonymizer Says:

    I called and a really helpful chap sorted out 7 tickets for me

    As I wanted to go on the 19/5 and the offer was re-issued to only start again on the 22nd … he kindly fixed us up with another offer at 22.50 per stall ticket

    how very kindly of him!


  2. Yes, I think they may be quite keen to grab whatever money they can from any potential punter to make back their £25 million.

    I might try ringing and haggling with them over the price just to see what happens…
