Update: The procedure has changed since the below was written. Click on the link for the latest details of how to request tickets to see Have I Got News for You being recorded
Regular readers will be aware of my near obsessive love of the Have I Got News for You TV show – and the regular rush to get tickets to watch it being recorded live.
As the tickets are made available on their website just twice a year, there is a mad rush to book tickets before they “sell out”, often within just a few minutes. Last time, the flood of traffic to all intents, crashed their website, and they advised that a new procedure for booking tickets would be launched for the next series.
While not sure yet quite how it will work, I noticed this morning that part of the new website is live, and if you want to book tickets in future, you will need to register an account with them.
In case the site wobbles and falls over again when the next batch of HIGNFY tickets is made available, might be wise to register early – maybe today even.
The tickets for the winter series are usually released around the 20th September, based on the past few years – and naturally, I will flag it on the blog and/or events guide.
One annoying aside though – their address system is demanding that I enter a county. I live in London – there is no county to enter! You’d think a London based company would know that. </rant> And breathes.
Update: The next batch of tickets will be put on to their website on the 21st Sept 2009. Woo!
