Thank you very much for your comments, we unfortunately have to wait until it is dark enough to start the show. Thank you for this advice about the blankets. Indeed, it may be cold on the seats along the canal.

I'm sorry but I don't know about that but if you go to their website you may find information there. There should certainly be some contact details as well and you should be able to ask them directly.
