I have a spare ticket if anyone wants. A good seat and one of the expensive tickets, but I'll offer at a discount - please message me.

Three amazing things:
Richard and Linda- waited over 30 years to see them together (however distanced on stage) again
Loudon- always amazing and doubly so with RT
Zara Phillips- the horsey one or someone else?

Does anyone know what she's done at any of those Thompson Family shows?  At any of the gigs I've seen her on the stage - Cropredy and the Barbican etc...she's never been singing any lead.  I didn't think it was a possibility any more?

Linda sang "Go Leave" by Kate McGarrigle at the Meltdown Festival on 12 June 2010. Richard accompanied her on guitar. I was there watching from the front row. I believe I didn't breath during the whole song.

Resale tickets are starting to appear on Twickets, for anyone wishing to go. Currently face value + fee. As the day approaches, this is likely to drop slightly.
For those who may be unaware, Twickets is reputable and, in my experience, reliable.
Update...
there are four available in a grand tier box near the royal box for £75 + fee each (FV = £95). Note that you'd have to buy all four.

Lots of images from the rehearsals appearing on FB.  Looks fab, in a depressing I won't be there kind of stylie.

Here's the man himself (and Linda et al) in a Denselow piece in the Grauniad.

Even more depressingly, I have a ticket but I won't be there, having put my back out on Friday. I just wouldn't be able to manage the combination of trains, buses, stairs and uncomfortable seating involved. I will no doubt get a full report from my concert buddy. here's hoping it is being filmed or recorded. Sad

Apparently Simon Nicol is stuck in Greece (according to FB), a victim of the Thomas Cook collapse by the sound of it, and will be missing both the RT birthday bash, and the start of recording for Fairport's new album.  He is not a happy man...

I'll also be missing the birthday bash - couldn't afford the tickets, and a Monday night is not a good day for me to get into and out of London, with work the next day.  But I'll console myself with the Home Service instead, which should also be a great concert.

Enjoy yourselves, all who are going!

Poor Simon - that really sucks.  He should be there and will be missed.
