Laura, that is so nice of you to include me in your thinking - much appreciated!
I can't remember what my shift pattern is for the 30th, so may end up being on a late shift, so is it OK to confirm once I'm back at work on the 14th? Fingers crossed I can sort it to come...

Which tickets did you get? The posh ones or the general ones...


 Posh ones all went, so we've got standing (or sitting if we can find seats) . This is where we're going to be:

Posh isn't it? I think it's first come in,  first get a seat, but I noticed not all of them were looking at the stage.

Can't you pretend that you're a fan of Downton Abbey/The Tudors or like Ben Miller/Death In Paradise?

it is wonderful news, fingers crossed Damien's schedule doesn't got too busy at that time and force him to pull out (the cancellation clause was not lost on me).

Who is going as the forum ambassadors?

I need to check my schedule but I am definitely interested. My pub quiz team may have to do without me for one week!

Do you know, my sister and i were trying to organise seeing a play in London for the 29th September but couldn't for one reason or another. I even said to her, it's a pity Damien wasn't doing anything then because it'd be nice to have an excuse to stay in London for an extra day to see it (we'd planned to not stay overnight but i wanted to, basically because in and out of London in 24 hours is exhausting for me) . It's a very rare occurence when my husband's shifts coincide with something that i want to do, that i'd be able to travel anywhere. It's like lightning in a bottle. This was such a weekend. My husband had said 'go, see your play, have fun, don't worry about the expense as you don't get to go out often' But this performance is on a MONDAY night and of course, having children of school/college age and a shift working husband means that that curse has struck again...

Those of you going, have a blast.

Well, they will have to do without you Kat.  biggrin   The tickets were selling out so I asked for 6 & got them!  Louise & Becca applied for tickets so I asked for 6 in case they didn't get any, but they have.  Domino said I should get one for you just in case you wanted to come & you've not been on a BH Field Trip yet.  I also got tickets for Su & Fifi and I will text Brookesey.

I do like Death In Paradise actually, so meeting Ben Miller would be cool as well, but I will have to explain myself, lol!

Thanks for posting this, domino.....and Laura - you are a star!  I would've been gutted if I'd missed it.  I think I've just about stopped hyperventilating now.....

Yes I did see the clause....but no-one is even allowed to think about that possiblity, alright?!

 

Kat - I had my ticket, train ticket and hotel booked for IYDLUD, before my OH had ever even heard the name Damien Molony......

 LMAO

I just had a vision of one of them innocently yawning, stretching their arms behind him, and snipping his locks stealthily like a ninja.

I needed that laugh.

Yes! All of this! I will be eagerly awaiting any and all tales/photos if manageable! biggrin

I cannot believe the timing of this event! I am already in London to see The Commitments on the Sunday night so it would have been rude not to extend my stay by a night to see Damien perform. I also can't wait to meet up with the rest of you again, it's been too long.
Not sure about getting a lock of hair for you though...it looks posh, best behaviour needed. ;)

The venue does look very exclusive, you will all need to be on you best behaviours Molonians... and not even sure there will be a stage door for this one..or if you would be allowed to linger there! but seeing Damien perform for this event will be a treat for you all!

Lol, ninja snipping? hide

I feel like the way it's worded makes it sound like the performers and guests will be arriving at 6 for drinks and mingling and the performances will start at 7:30? I could be wrong...I don't think it's a stage door type of event x
