    Go on, I’m intrigued; what exactly are you raising money for? And on what basis are “contributions” tax deductible as stated on your donations page?

    Hmm we struggled to pay the £20+ for the concession tickets only to see that you now have the same tickets @ £15.88 and to top it off “special” tickets @ £10.88. I do feel a little bit upset since we are both on carers allowance and this will be our 1 night out of the year as finances are so tight.

    Hi, I have received an email from you thanking me for my donation, but nothing about the fact that it was for a ticket. I am a bit confused? I purchased this ticket from the link just above!

    I bought a concession ticket, but have had no confirmation that I have actually got a ticket. If I do get a conformation, I am happy to get you a ticket, if you want?

    I will happily make a donation as I cant afford to travel to London, but what is it going to pay for. Would be good to see details of what you need and what it will cost, rather than a big bucket probably from the people you are trying to help but in what ways……..?

    Having to re type this as your system lost it having forced me to go through the rig-moral of registering!

    I am sure I am Simply echoing what has been said by others – but maybe you will take note of the level of feeling in future…

    Not much of a concession 4 pound!

    Couldn’t you have increased the normal price a bit to make the concessionary price a bit more affordable? You could even have done this on a ticket by ticket basis whereby you only offer concessions once you have sold enough full price tickets to cover the cost. Am sure those with jobs would have happily paid 30 or more meaning the concession price could have been quite a bit lower.

    Would have loved to have come to this event but it is a bit too pricey :-(

    For a political movement trying to challenge inequalities I have to say that this is a bit lame.

    Hi Adam, sorry about this, the tickets for wheelchair user plus a free ticket for a carer are only available on the Apollo website Haven’t made this clear… If you have any troubles or require a concessions ticket, drop us an email and we’ll get back to you after the demo.

    How do I specify that I need a space for my wheelchair? There doesn’t seem to be an area to make this clear.

    I’d love to, but my esa payment is currently £28 per week thanks to another sanction. Good luck, great idea!

    Funds for what?

    I’ve no objection to comedy, or comedians being paid, but what exactly is this in support of?

    I’m genuinely interested; this isn’t a criticism. I just don’t see what needs funding.
