    Forestry Commission Gigs - kids ?

    Don't know if i've put this in the correct place, but was wondering if anyone had been to one of the above mentioned gigs with children. The box office states that children 5 and under are free and do not need a ticket, my daughter is 6 and didn't really want to spend £35 on a ticket for her, just wondering how keen the staff are at checking ages or if they turn a blind eye to this sort of thing?

    Thanks a lot - seems a very sensible idea! but I think £35 is alot to pay for a child, would be better if there were some child priced tickets as she will be six the week before, and I can then spend the £35 on some second hand clothes for her.

    Legal & ticket pricing issues aside, is she "tall for her age"?

    I would suggest you 'chance' it on the day. The tickets will be purchased whilst she is under six, and unless she has her own passport &/or a birth certificate with her on the day I don't suppose anybody is going to pursue her age & refuse her admission to the event.

    Hmmm... reading back what I typed & what you started the thread with about an under six not needing a ticket...

    Do you have to register the fact you will be taking kids that will be expecting free access?

    I was just wondering about safety issues on the day. The ticket allocation means that the venue will know how many people to expect & the number of people they can accommodate will be set at a maximum based on advice from emergency service professionals about evacuation procedures in the event of an incident.

    If everybody who buys a ticket takes along a kid or two that have not been made known to the organisers then the place is going to be over-subscribed for attendees.

    I would, therefore, advise getting to the venue as early as you can (although that is not ideal with young children as you need to entertain them for longer). If numbers are reaching the venue's capacity then the gate staff may begin being more stringent with their entry criteria.

    No you don't have to register as far as I know but thats a good point you have made although don't think many people will really want to take their 5 and unders, just thought a few people might have done the same thing last year and got in really easily spose it depends on who is on the gate good cop or bad cap thanks anyway looks like I'll look for a cheap last minute ticket off ebay, or might be feelin lucky and take a chance.
