tickets were definitely too expensive to begin with. the plan is clearly working though - the who is now sold out

they would compare her to lilies, and she had to go to parties, and london was so dreary

There is a follow up page after the donation, where you have to pay you £2.50 booking fee per ticket.

Once you get through that you get an email saying something like, tickets will be emailed out no earlier than 17th June, you should receive yours within 24 hours of this, if you don't please contact...

Looking at their Twitter mentions, this is turning out to be a bit of a PR disaster. Equal measure of people furious about the tickets being discounted, and people angry that they can't seem to buy tickets despite donating.

I hope this is the final nail in the coffin for BST, but I know they'll do the same next year. They'll just need to carry on thinking of more innovative methods of discounting.

Or, y'know, actually have affordable tickets. Or, donate, let's say, £20 of each £219 (£219!) VIP ticket sold to charity.

The only page that came next was the standard ticket site for Hyde Park with the FULL PRICES. I'm majorly pissed off at the moment as I've donated and ended up with SWEET FUCK ALL.

Looks like the same is happening to others looking at comments on the BST FB page!

Ouch! I don't know what to say, it all went through very smoothly for me and naturally I posted it here and on FB pages in good faith

Only BST could manage this. Infuriating not just people who had already bought tickets, but also people who are attempting to buy the charity tickets and not succeeding :lol:

Fail all round.

Or they're a bunch of incompetent FOOLS who thought it would be fun to charge £80 originally but then let tickets go for £2 minimum donation with £2.50 booking fee to make up for their mistake, and then when people donate money for a ticket, they take it and give you nothing in return.
