Rush for Harry Kinds tour tickets crashes Ticketmaster’s UK web site

The huge demand for Harry Styles tour tickets caused Ticketmaster’s UK website to crash earlier this morning (January 27).

Pre-sale tickets for the singer’s ‘Love On Tour’ UK dateswhich will take place in June, went on sale earlier today ahead of a general sale beginning tomorrow (January 28).

However, the huge demand for tickets this morning “exceeded everyone’s expectations”, causing Ticketmaster’s UK ticket outlets to crash.

“It seems Harry Styles has exceeded everyone’s expectations and ticket outlets are currently down under unprecedented demand,” Ticketmaster UK tweeted this morning.

“We’re working hard to rectify issues and will keep updating you here as we work to get things back up and running.”

UK days out: how to save cash on tickets | Saving cash

The weather is improving, lockdown is easing and after months of staying at home, many of us are raring to get out and about. For families in England, half-term has arrived but even if you haven’t got children to entertain, you may be considering a day trip or two over the next few weeks.

If you want to treat yourselves to a trip to a paid-for attraction, the good news is that you may not have to shell out for the advertised fee – there are a range of vouchers and offers you can use to cut the cost.

Money woes, plus a need to keep numbers down for physical distancing, mean that some of the usual offers have been stopped. For example, ZSL has suspended most promotions at London and Whipsnade zoos, with the website saying this is so it can “control numbers more effectively and ensure that visitors have a safe and enjoyable experience”.

Jasmine Birtles of the website MoneyMagpie says: “I don’t think there are a huge amount of offers at the moment, so you have to do a bit of digging.”

Fortunately, Guardian Money has done some of the spadework for you, and here’s our guide to where to look before you book.

Be aware: currently most attractions insist that you book in advance. You can still be a bit spontaneous, as lots of the offers can be booked online and tickets quickly downloaded, but in most cases you cannot just turn up.

Vouchers

For some of the UK’s biggest attractions, including Legoland, Alton Towers and the London Eye, Kellogg’s is running its annual offer on cereal packets and packs of snacks including Fruit Winders and Rice Krispie Squares.

Its free adult ticket vouchers can be used at more than 40 places – sites owned by Merlin Entertainment in the UK, plus several attractions in Ireland.

The vouchers can be used by an adult accompanying either another adult or a child and typically mean you get two tickets for the price of one charged at the gate price. This is generally more expensive than the online price you are offered if you book direct. At Legoland Windsor, tickets the gate price is £53 per person, whatever day you want to go. The offer buys two tickets for that price. Booking direct costs £29 outside peak times such as half-term, and £39 in them. There are some special offers if you book direct, such as a £25 ticket for an adult and a preschooler during school days through much of June.

Off- and on-peak, the voucher works well for two adults or an adult and a school-age child at £26.50 each. You can book via the Kellogg’s website, either well in advance or on the day.

National Rail’s two-for-one deal offers a second ticket for free if you are travelling by train. The scheme usually has a long list of attractions but many are not offering the deal currently, so make sure you check online before you travel. For example, the deals for the Tower of London and the London Transport Museum are currently unavailable.

Legoland is, again, an option, and for the same price as with a Kellogg’s voucher. You need to book via the National Rail site. For Cadbury World the offer is 30% off the standard price but you get access to the online prices. For tickets after half-term, two adults can visit for £26.60 rather than the £36.10 they would pay if they booked directly.

If you have an annual gold card that goes with an Oyster card season ticket, or a paper season ticket, you can use the deal. If you don’t, for attractions in London it can be worth seeing if you can buy an overground ticket for the last leg of your journey to secure the offer. Hampton Court Palace, for example, isn’t currently running the deal but when it is, buying a paper ticket for the last stretch of the journey is cheaper than paying £24 for a second visitor ticket.

Tesco Clubcard vouchers are another option. “A lot of people will have got really good Clubcard balances now as they’ve been buying all their food there over the past year,” Birtles says.

Some of the partnerships have been put on hold but there are still deals with attractions around the country. Clubcard holders exchange 50p worth of points for £1.50 towards the ticket price – and you can use them in part payment and top up the difference, meaning you can reduce the cost even if you do not have a stack of points.

Each £1 spent at Tesco earns you one point, and 150 points earn you £1.50 worth of vouchers – so for every £150 you have spent you can save £4.50 on a day out. There are other ways to earn points, including doing online surveys.

The vouchers do have an expiry date. Those that were due to expire on 31 May have been extended for another six months, so if you have already got some, you now have the summer to use them.

For £15 worth of vouchers and a fiver you could meet the £50 it costs to get a family of two adults and two children into the Black Country Living Museum on the Thursday of half-term.

For the Jorvik Viking Centre in York, an adult and a child could visit for £7 worth of vouchers.

Make sure you check when you need to use your vouchers – with the Eden Project, for example, you need to redeem them by midnight the day before your visit.

Annual tickets

Sometimes, an annual season ticket, or membership, is a good option – if you plan your visits well, by the end of the summer your days out could be free. At the National Trust, membership costs £72 a year for an individual, £120 a year for a couple and £126 a year for a family with two adults. How quickly it pays for itself depends on which attractions you visit. Tickets for some of the big country houses are £15 each for adults, so trips to five of them would mean you more than break even on an individual ticket. Family prices at the same attractions are £37.50, so on your fourth visit you will be in pocket.

It is the same at English Heritage, where annual membership is £64 for one person and £111 for two, family tickets are priced the same and up to six children go free with each adult. A family visiting Scarborough Castle, Whitby Abbey and Rievaulx Abbey over the course of a week’s holiday would pay £79.80 for standalone tickets.

Tesco Clubcard points can be used towards annual membership for English Heritage, the Royal Horticultural Society – which means you can visit its gardens for no extra fee – and Cadw, which looks after Conwy Castle and other historic buildings in Wales. Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, and Oakwood Theme Park in Pembrokeshire also have season tickets that can be used with the points. The membership for English Heritage through the offer is £110 for a family, so you will need £37 worth of vouchers to cover it in full.

Passes

There are several schemes that offer discounts for an upfront fee. The LittleBird website runs a Family Pass that offers discounts on days out, among other things. The pass costs £1 for a month’s trial, then £3.49 a month, and you can cancel at any time.

In June, offers include Go Ape and KidZania – although the site does not publish how big the discounts are on those. For Africa Alive in Suffolk it is offering 20% off all entry tickets – a saving of £4 for adults and £3 for children. The attraction offers 10% off to NHS workers without a voucher.

The London Pass is expensive but if you are planning to visit more than one place, it might save you money. Passes are priced according to how many days they last. For one day, an adult pays £54 and a child’s pass costs £34. If you could manage London zoo and the Tower of London in the same day, you would save £4.90 on off-peak tickets and £10.90 on peak prices as an adult. But you might prefer to spend the whole day at each one to get your money’s worth.

Half-term headache: is it all sold out?

If you are reading this and haven’t yet booked tickets for your May half-term day trips and attractions in England, now’s the time to act. When Guardian Money checked on Thursday, some popular attractions such as Chester zoo had already put up the sold out sign for the entire week. There, Monday 7 June was the first available date to book.

Others such as London zoo and Whipsnade only had availability on some days, and the slots were almost disappearing before our eyes. At Legoland Windsor there were some days where there were only afternoon tickets left. Alton Towers still appeared to have good availability, although there was one day where you could only buy a twilight pass, for entry after 4pm.

We had to queue to get on to the website for The Making of Harry Potter tour at Warner Bros Studios in Hertfordshire and then it appeared to be booked up for families until 6pm on 19 July, although there were tickets for individuals and couples available before that.

However, if the attraction you want to visit has no slots available on the day you wanted to go, don’t give up hope. Many are letting people switch their booking to another date if someone in their party is showing symptoms of Covid-19, if they are isolating or there are restrictions on travel in place (although refunds are typically a no-no).

For example, at the London Eye, you can move your ticket up to five times up to the end of 2021. So it is possible that last-minute tickets will pop up as a result of people having to change their plans. If you have the flexibility to go on the same day, it may be worth checking the same morning.

If getting into central London is a possibility, this could be the week to check out some of the capital’s attractions. A lack of overseas tourists means some of London’s biggest draws could be a lot less busy than normal.

The London Eye – where you get 30 minutes riding in one of its 32 pods – had good availability for all days up to and including Sunday 6 June when we looked. Meanwhile, the Tower of London had either medium or high availability for all days.

Blue Peter badges bring benefits

Blue Peter badges are an achievement in their own right but they come with the bonus of free days out for their holders. More than 200 attractions around the UK will let Blue Peter badge winners in for free in normal times. Some of these, for example, London zoo, have suspended the promotion but at others such as the Black Country Living Museum, you can book a free ticket for a child.

Badges are given for a range of achievements, including sending in written creations and pictures to the BBC show or taking on sporting or environmental challenges.

Christina Davis’s daughter Hermione earned her badge two and a half years ago for designing and building a shelter out of recycled materials for the programme’s tortoise.

“I was surprised when I got the letter about the badge – I thought you might need to do something really amazing to get one,” Hermione says. “I put it on straight away when I finally received it. I was definitely proud.”

Christina says: “The children want the badge – they don’t want it for the free entry. It’s the parents who that’s a great thing for.” Hermione won a diamond badge as well as the traditional blue one. “It’s the normal one that she wants to wear out – and people recognise it and comment.”

Hermione has used it a few times, including on trips to Kew Gardens and, her favourite so far, London zoo. “I like the reptile house,” she says.

The family is planning a trip to the New Forest soon, and Christina has found places they can visit if the weather is bad. The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu in Hampshire will let Hermione in for free with her badge and the photocard that goes with it to prove that it is hers.

Last year was a bumper year, with more than 113,000 badges awarded

These were introduced after the badges began to be traded online as people realised the perks of having one. The badges can be won by anyone aged between six and 15, and there are details of the requirements for each one on the BBC website. It can take a while for the applications to be processed but if you apply now, you may be set for the summer holidays.

The BBC says everyone who writes in to the programme receives a letter, and the majority also qualify for a badge. Last year was a bumper year, with more than 113,000 badges awarded. Blue Peter’s editor, Ellen Evans, says the badge is “about so much more than just being able to get into attractions. Viewers can write in to Blue Peter and receive a personal letter and badge back in the post, and in a digital age there’s something quite special about that.”

Badge winners are also part of a “unique club”, she says – current holders include the astronaut Tim Peake, the writer Malorie Blackman and the footballer Marcus Rashford.

“Blue Peter is all about being taken on an adventure, and what’s great about the badge is that once kids earn it, they can then enjoy their own adventures with their families in real life, too.”

Excessive demand for tickets to reside leisure venues, leaves some patrons out of luck

Ricky Askey, who lives in Grandview Heights, required serious planning to attend live music concerts amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’m probably more on Facebook than I should, and I see these events pop up and get involved as soon as I see them,” said Askey, 37. “Within a few days, I’d be saying these shows.” are sold out. “

If Askey hadn’t bought tickets to the Trippin ‘Zoo at Natalie’s Music Hall & Kitchen or the High Definitions and Caroline Louise in Ace of Cups, he probably would have missed it altogether – as he did when he thought about checking it out Worn flints at Ace of Cups, but swayed.

“I hesitated,” said Askey. “Then, literally, three days later, I couldn’t get tickets.”

Given the pandemic-era capacity constraints that limited the number of attendees at indoor entertainment venues – restrictions that won’t officially end until early next month – the Askey experience is far from unusual: there are more eager fans than tickets.

“More and more people are feeling like they’re seeing the light at the end of the tunnel,” said Charlie Jackson, co-owner of Natalie’s Music Hall & Kitchen in Grandview Heights and Natalie’s Coal-Fired Pizza and Live Music in Worthington (both) again late last summer open for live music, closed later in fall and reopened earlier this year).

A potential trailblazer came Wednesday when Governor Mike DeWine announced that government health contracts, including those with limited audience capacity in theaters, concert halls and clubs, would be lifted on June 2.

However, many venues don’t plan to return to full capacity immediately.

Both of Natalie’s locations were operating at half their normal capacity with tables about two meters apart (equivalent to about 60 people in Grandview Heights and 40 in Worthington).

With the governor’s announcement, Jackson said he expected to move the tables closer and eventually reintroduce individual seating in the bar, but all changes will be gradual.

“Our game plan will be to watch the (coronavirus) numbers between now and early June,” Jackson said. “I see how we get involved.”

The Columbus Association for the Performing Arts (CAPA), which runs the Ohio Theater, Southern Theater, Palace Theater and other venues, welcomed the end of health care contracts but made no commitment in a statement Thursday on when it would increase its capacity Venues – even after government restrictions are over.

This means that the current shortage of tickets may continue for some time.

“For the most part, the bands we book there is a demand for them,” Jackson said. “And because it has so little capacity, we usually sell it out before the show.”

The situation is similar with Ace of Cups, which reopened its doors in March and offers up to 60 seats at tables one meter apart. According to owner Conor Stratton, most shows sell out within a week of being announced.

“Sometimes it can take a little longer based mostly on whether the band is raising awareness or not,” said Stratton, unwilling to announce changes to capacity. “But one way or another, they’re pretty much all sold out.”

To deal with the situation, some venues are adding additional performances.

Last month when the Hoodoo Soul Band sold out an evening show at Natalie’s in Grandview Heights, Jackson spontaneously added a late afternoon show.

“We definitely want as many customers as we can safely accommodate, and we want to be sensitive to people who are genuinely disappointed,” he said.

Columbus Funny Bone comedy club has allowed less than half of its 385-seat capacity since opening in August and plans to slowly add more capacity after the health orders are lifted. Business has been strong so far.

“We sell out at least a week in advance,” said Blake Blessinger, who oversees the Funny Bone clubs in the Midwest, including the Columbus Club.

Typically, when a particular show is pre-sold 80% to 85% per week, additional shows are added.

“The faster the shows sell, the faster we can add a show (and) more opportunity for the community to come out, see it, support it,” said Blessinger.

Of course, other shows can also be sold out: At Natalie in Grandview Heights, the Peter Mayer Group’s recent back-to-back performances, hosted by the lead guitarist of the Coral Reefer Band by Jimmy Buffet, were both sold out.

Classical music concerts, which may attract older people than other genres, have also been constantly or near-busy.

Last September, the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra was among the first performing arts organizations in the region to return to live performances, from outdoor and drive-up performances to indoor relocation.

“I think a lot of that summer was attributed to being one of the first to go live again after a six-month hiatus,” said CEO Janet Chen, but even as the orchestra faced greater competition for audience attention , The most recent concerts at The Fives with around 100 seats are sold out or come close to that.

Chen notes that there are usually few no-shows at concert time, an indication of the enthusiasm of the audience.

“Almost everyone who bought a ticket shows up,” said Chen. “In a time when there is no pandemic, you sell a certain number of tickets and a handful of people don’t show up,” said Chen. “I notice that not only are tickets being sold quickly during this time, but the people who bought the tickets are also coming.”

The directors of the Columbus Symphony, which this spring allowed around 230 people to perform at the Ohio Theater due to both capacity constraints and ongoing renovations, paint a similar picture.

“We sell it out pretty regularly now,” said managing director Denise Rehg, adding that both newcomers and long-term customers have recently been in the audience.

“Our regulars show up and they are a group that got vaccinated early,” said Rehg.

Opera Columbus reports that its latest production of Don Giovanni, which was performed at COSI in late April and early May to 150 viewers per performance, was also sold out.

For those looking to dip their toes back into the central Ohio arts scene, hope is not lost.

Sound engineer Sam Beaumier gives his thumbs up to recently starting a Peter Mayer Group show at Natalie's in Grandview Heights.

Andy Basista, a Columbus resident who is a regular at Natalie, Ace of Cups, and the Rambling House, hasn’t missed too many shows since the venues reopened. When he sees an announcement for an action he’s interested in, he immediately orders tickets.

“I’ve always been good at getting in there quickly,” said Basista, 57. “They fill up pretty quickly, but I always manage to beat them.”

In the end, this is the advice of the pros: keep an eye on the websites or social media channels of your favorite venues or performers, and if you like a show, don’t hesitate to buy it.

“Every time we get confirmed action, we put it on the website,” said Blessinger, who encourages prospects to check back frequently to see when tickets go on sale. “Buy these tickets ASAP as we sell out a lot in advance.”

In the case of Columbus Funny Bone, when a show is advertised on social media, it’s almost too late to pick up tickets, Blessinger said.

At Natalie, Jackson will not hold unoccupied tables for more than 15 minutes after a concert has started. Jackson therefore suggests that those who haven’t received tickets just show up, have a drink or eat, and hope that a table will become available.

“Let us know, ‘Hey, I’m here. If something opens up, can you let me know? Asked Jackson. “We’re trying to accommodate everyone.”

While government-mandated capacity restrictions will soon be a thing of the past, the transition to full capacity could be difficult for some venues.

For example, Columbus Funny Bone has fewer employees than before due to the downsizing – not enough to accommodate changes that result in greater capacity or less strict social distancing.

“Staffing will be a big problem across the hospitality industry,” said Blessinger. “With a snap of your finger (officials might say), ‘Hey, you don’t need those six feet anymore – you only need three.’ Well, that will add another 75 people. With those 75 people, I need four more servers. “

Headache and inconvenience aside, many concert-goers in central Ohio are just happy to get out – even if a sold-out show doesn’t quite mean the same thing as it does in a pre-COVID world.

“We’re dying for it,” said Askey. “The live music experience for those who appreciate it is something that has nothing else to do with it.”
