Well, buying that ticket was remarkably easy, by far the easiest it's ever been! I guess demand's not as great as usual. Not sure if I'll actually attend or not but I am keeping my options open...

A painless easy booking process apart from the not knowing the counter meant you were in the que. apart from that all great. one question when can we transfer passes to.

That's why I bought five seats. I'm telling everyone it's because there's five of us going but it's really to keep all you covid infected buggers at arms length!

Not bad at all this year, though the registration process against the clock might be an event at the Olympics soon...

See you all in August!
Yeah. Luckily I registered before passes went on sale but even so things were going way too smoothly for comfort, the site putting me initially at number 2 in the queue. A couple of minutes later I realised the screen had frozen so had another go and got shoved down 150 places. But even then it only took about 5 minutes and I was back in, getting the usual 5 seats in a decent position for once. So yes, one of the easier years for getting passes :D

We're still shielding for medical reasons so not going to be able to make it to Leicester Square which I'm gutted about. I will however do the digital version; when are the tickets going on sale and will the films be the same?

Quite a lot of seats still available, I see (roughly 6 hours after they went on sale). I guess that explains why the booking system didn't all collapse under the scramble like it usually does.

^ Ditto. I wasn't sure whether I was going to go this year but checking it was surprised to find quite a lot of weekend passes left, a few decent single seats, so I nabbed one. I guess a lot of people are still wary of going to an event like this. On my lonesome this year, but looking forward to it. Game on!

Argh, I messed up - only just thought to check for Disco screen tickets and of course all the passholder tickets have gone for the films I wanted to see. Will more passholder tickets be made available on the day if the single tickets are not sold out?

I'm hoping so - I was at work Wednesday, couldn't get online until 9pm and while I managed to get two there was nothing left for the ones I really wanted (a three hour folk horror documentary showing on a Sunday morning completely sold out - who knew? :D)

I'm hoping there'll be a system like previous years where they give out handed back tickets and make available the single tickets which haven't been sold, but failing that I've often had some luck by just turning up and asking as it starts.

Cool, fingers crossed! Still, if it doesn't pan out, I'll be happy just staying in the main screen this year I reckon - I wasn't planning on as many excursions to the Disco screens as usual anyway.
