I went to see the ballet for NYE. This is my 1st NYE @ the ballet & in London. I decided to purchase tickets at the last minute and feared no seats might be available but THEY WERE AVAILABLE!

I went to the Barbican to watch Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy with my wife today. As everybody has pointed out, finding the cinemas is a bit of a problem- not unless you go to the reception straightaway and ask for directions. Cinema 1 is on level -2 that is two floors down to the basement.

On Mondays you get tickets for half price so we ended up paying £5 each (online), which, in my opinion is...more
