    Just been told that it’s sold out. Offer still on the website though…

    • If you want one, then we can set an extra one up for you. Just drop a ticket in and mention the offer. Sorry for the hassle.

      (We have sold out of that run and I appreciate the offer is still on the site – we’re waiting for the design team to take it off)
