  1. Just cancelled the Sunday show in Bideford too
  2. He’s also playing there Saturday 😂 seems like a lot of driving
  3. Frank Turner has a gig in Bideford on the Sunday so will be hard for him to be in Donnington too?
  4. If anyone’s curious about the cardboard cutouts in the picture - Mr Bean, Charlie Chaplin and Marcel Marceau - they’re all people who wouldn’t sing at a gig
  5. Sorry if this is a bit long, just got home from the gig. Was a really great night. Went with my gf and parents, mum was in a high risk category because of her asthma so was a little nervous about going, has barely been out of the house since lockdown, but she said she felt really safe there with the measures the venue took - physically distanced (They said at the gig there’s no need to socially distance yourself from anyone, just physically distance) queue with staggered entry times we were sent before. Shown to our table where preordered drinks were delivered, you had table service or if it was quiet you could go to the bar. All staff & photographers were wearing masks throughout, crowd all seemed to mask up in the queue, remove at tables, but remask if moving around the venue. Asked not to get up and dance, sing or cheer. Just clap and stamp feet. Tbh I’m not sure how enforceable that is, or ever will be especially with the addition of alcohol. A few people got up towards the end and had a little dance at their table and it’s hard to tell if someone is mouthing along or singing, + I guess if you really wanted to sing along just put your mask on and nobody can really see & it’s stopping you spread so much. They were very hot though on if you were blatantly breaking the rules, one group of lads, who’d had a bit too much fun in the afternoon were shouting & not observing the one way system around the venue, they got a warning, cut off at the bar & eventually one was asked to leave. The gig itself, amazing. Very emotional being back in a venue and that buzz and excitement before someone comes on stage. The lights, proper sound and no buffering haha, the acts seemed genuinely chuffed to be back infront of an audience as well, it was just a really positive atmosphere. It’s a long way off being perfect and back to normal, but it was a big step in the right direction. Fingers crossed we start to see a few more pop up in the coming months. Also we’ve all totally lost our night vision for in venues/clubs. Wow it was so dark walking in there, couldn’t see a thing for the first 20min 😂
  6. I’m on my way to this now. Feels a bit surreal an indoor gig
  7. If there’s one thing my stepdad has never been good at doing, it’s working out the exchange rate 😂 He’ll of either tipped incredibly well or badly, hopefully the first. Kudos to your brother for not just laying staff off. What’s his dive school called? I went to gilli about 5 years ago, would love to go back one day, if I do will check his place out.
  8. If it makes you feel any better, my parents are in Bali at the moment and it’s not quite the holiday they hoped for. They got to Gilli T this morning to be told there’s no more boats back to Bali for 2 weeks. Lots of upset phone calls this morning, think they’re managing to sort a boat to Lombok, a flight back to Bali and they’re just going to get the rest of their luggage and get on the next flight out. Trying not to think about what happens if the situation changes in the time they’re doing that. Was silly them going away in the first place I guess. But yeah hopefully that’ll make you feel validated in cancelling. Fingers crossed for June & hopefully you can rebook your honeymoon when all this is done.
  9. Forum isn’t sold out, but I think it comes from when they sold out the electric ballroom and people said the same.
  10. Thanks, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for a similar time
  11. Hi, a friend got me tickets for the Thursday coach from Taunton. Been twice on the Wednesday coach and had a 6am & 3pm coach. Curious is anyone’s done the Thursday before and what time they got? Made peace with losing the Wednesday but will be a bit gutted if the Thursday coaches are running that late. Will feel like we’ve almost lost 2 days then.
  12. Got an email this morning there’s a presale on the dice app, friends picked up tickets for London on there
  13. Just had a friend text me saying it’s Supergrass. Hes got no real connections to the event or village so could be utter rubbish, but it kind of fits
  14. She was there and wasn’t really fussed? My assumption was that number is there to make complaints against them when they start acting as a law unto themselves? As this guy was when he decided I couldn’t take in a plastic bottle when countless people in my own group walking in with the same bottles next to me weren’t stopped.
