Anyone else not get switch on tickets?

Hi all,

I didn`t get any tickets for the Big Switch on,gutted!

We are in Blackpool at least 5/6 times a year, sometimes more, and would have loved to get tickets.

I had several family members apply as well for me but I didnt ask enough people!

We will just need to come down the second weekend in September.

Anyone else not get them?

Got mine. Have been in our hotel 24years and although a few years ago it was first there on the night.This is the first year I have been successful. It will all be shown on the big screen so u can still watch it.

Got mine too...although would have preferred to get last years when it was Robbie but wasn't sucessfull on that occasion.

America has lemon laws to enable buyers to return a dud car....Blackpool dosen't have such lemon laws to return a celebrity who dosen't quite measure up to the shine of Robbie Williams...which i personally think is the toughest illumination switch on act to follow....But i'm sure it will be a good night with the other acts appearing too.

We have decided to come down the switch on weekend anyway, even though we haven`t got any tickets. Big screen for us.

We have prised ourselves away for our usual haunt, The Cliffs and we are going south this time. First time at this hotel so will review when I come back.

I assume the Laughing Donkey will be open so spend Saturday night in there.
