Manchester- poor seating arrangemen... from Stephen, 19/04/12
Attended event at Manchester. . We paid full price for seats. These seats were slightly to the side of the stage.The event used a back screen showing not only photographs but tv clips and interview from friends, TV personalities and Bears' wife.
We could not see any of this due to the speakers hanging down from the ceiling. I took my 16 year old son as a special treat and was very disappointed with this as the organisers must have known this would be a major issue with this event.
Four blocks of seats - in the middle tier - right in front of the stage were not used at all. This problem was not therefore due to a sell out crowd. Why treat paying customers this way? I think a refund should be made as this was an avoidable problem which had a major impact on the quality of the event and the enjoyment of Bear Grylls' talk. Were we the only ones to feel cheated in this way? Stephen.
