SOLD OUT meaning every wristband has now been sold...I am truly delighted to announce after today’s requests re any surplus wristbands that the 2014 Class of 72 Reunion is NOW OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT meaning no one without a wristband on the day or collected via reservations with Malc Burton or Jez Jones will not be able to gain entrance ( apologies however we need to respect our venue's capacity) Badged security staff have been asked by the venue officials to randomly check bags , if talc is found it will be confiscated.. IF you have no wristband PLEASE don’t travel you WILL NOT GET IN,,cya Sat. THERE IS NOW NO PAY ON DAY OPTION...
