An Evening With Sir Terry Pratchett

Postby RJH » Wed Aug 31, 2011 9:57 pm

On October 18, fantasy author Sir Terry Pratchett will be making a rare appearance at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.The man who once said “I wouldn’t pay more than a couple of quid to see me, and I’m me” will be promoting his fiftieth book Snuff. This time around, fan favourite Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh Morpork City Watch is caught up in a murder-mystery while on holiday.

Sounds interesting but like you getting to London midweek is not on. I hope somebody from this forum will go and let us know what it was like.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Hmmm, I'm not working that day and it's only a few days after my birthday. I might well check it out providing I can still get the train back afterwards to Worthing. :D

I think the convention is much better value ;)

For just a little bit more you get to spend the whole weekend in the company of Mr P!

PS Yes, I might be a bit biased.

That's bloody expensive. Somebody's making out like a bandit here.

At least at con you get you money's worth (well, except at the bar, but this year we're going in with a plan).
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

Slap 1 quid on 17 black on the roulette table for me Pinflod - wow! look it won - that's 35 quid! You take it Pinflod and go and see TP. :D

I don't think that 35 quid is expensive. :?
How much does a band cost to watch nowadays, or how much to watch MU play?

I bet MU cost more than TP and I know who I'd rather watch. :D

Probably a lot more :wink: I was quoting the average I paid for Ash, Passion Pit and 30 Seconds to Mars in the past couple of years.

BTW, may see Ash again in October, it's the 10th anniversary of Free All Angels and they are touring the album again, with Charlotte joining them again for the first time in almost as many years. :D

IMO Ash sufferd from the same problem as the Smiths, the fast songs were brill, but the slow songs were pants. :D
