No, it was the fact I had to blag that seat in the first place that says there was slack facilities. Before going in a woman was talking to me about how silly it was that there was no proper seating and that people were expected to sit on a stone floor for the best part of 6 hours of entertainment. I could see many people were quite uncomfortable all evening but maybe were prepared to put up with it or unwilling to complain.

And at £12.50 a ticket I don't think it's unreasonable for me to write to them and say what I felt was wrong.

It does seem a bit stupid to have to pay £12.50 to sit on a stone cold floor! Someone could have made a mint selling beanbags just outside the door.

Didn't the organisers make it clear when you purchased the tickets? There are never proper seats for these kinds of film screenings.
What time did they show Land of the dead then?

My arse was hurting after sitting on that stone floor for so long, but it was a brilliant evening.

Well the ticket was an early birthday present from my friend Laura. I only found out about there being no seats when Feckless_Dykey_Prostitute pointed it out (which, btw, I'm very thankful for). Although I'd never been to Somerset House before I knew the courtyard was a stone floor so thought there'd be seats. If it was grass there'd be no problem but stone is a far too hard to sit on for 5 hours, as Sleeping_Pirate has testified to. They could've put some mats down or something.

Land Of The Dead was on at 11:25pm but I had to get to Fenchurch Street to catch the last train. I live on the very outer edge of London and the nightbus doesn't go where I live. Otherwise I would've stayed.

Hi guys!

Sorry for the delay in posting, but we just wanted to say thanks to everyone on here who said nice things about us on Saturday.

It really was great to be a part of it - we met so many wonderful people that evening.

We want to apologise to the guy who wore that REALLY cool red Dawn of the Dead t-shirt (with the machette zombie on it) for defacing that t-shirt with our almost illegible scrawl. Well, we DID ask him if he was sure about it beforehand! laugh.gif

Feckless_dykie_prostitute - did you HAVE to post that scan of our aforementioned scrawl for all the world to see! LOL!!! We just did our "zombie" look for pictures - hopefully people saw that we are happy bunnies really!

We had a funny feeling that one of two certiain people - no prizes for guessing their identities - was going to do something like sing Happy Birthday to us - having such a huge crowd singing along was certainly one of those surreal moments that are not likely to be forgotten in a hurry!

Once again, thanks to everyone who were nice enough to come up and say "hi" to us.

All the best smile.gif ,
