Ipswich Regent on Wednesday 8th March (the next day after we thrash Wolves at home, possibly).
Would anyone be interested in buying 2x tickets? They're good seats - pretty central in Row C, seats 15 and 16 for £25.50 each.
I booked them without checking and not realising that it is 'Another chance to see 'Sean Lock - Keep it Light', which, whilst it was good, it is likely that essentially it would be the same show we'd seen him do at Cambridge Corn Exchange back in April this year, apart from a few minor variations maybe.
If anyone is interested, pm me and we can sort it out.

Obviously, HarryfromBath is still to do his preview stuff for this weekend, but I wondered if he could include a new section, just keeping it updated week to week as to who the latest boo boy is. As I understand it, recently it was Knudsen, and then it was Douglas, but has that hat now changed to Skuse?
I don't want the embarrassment of getting it wrong...
