PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY
The fact that you are reading this means
that your request for a ticket(s) is whizzing it's way to the Tropic'
office, thanks for booking.
THIS IS AN AUTOMATED PAGE, IT IS NOT A TICKET NOR DOES IT CONFIRM OUR
ACCEPTANCE OF A BOOKING BY YOU. IT MERELY CONFIRMS WE HAVE YOUR REQUEST.
As you have used the long booking form the
assumption is made that you have either never BOOKED before or actually
never come before, so below is all the information you should need, and
a few links to help you out. If you spend 30 seconds reading this now
you may well save yourself hours of time if you book again!!
Nearly all Friday and Saturday gigs start
with band on stage at 9.30. Double headers and gigs where we have a
support may start earlier. YOU
ARE ADVISED TO BE AT THE VENUE BY 9.00pm, 09.30 LATEST.
For SUNDAY gigs we open the doors at 7.30 pm
(ish) and for the music it is 8.15 to 10.30, certainly no later than 11.00.
Any variations to this will be on the web
site and apparent at the time you booked.
In the event that the gig is sold out we reserve the right to release
your ticket to anyone waiting for returns at 9.30 and in this case you
may well NOT be allowed in.
Please note you must pay in CASH on arrival to get gain admission to the
music room but the bar may take card payments for drinks where the
purchase is over a set limit (about £10).
A manual response will be sent to you in due course by e-mail confirming
your ticket (and thus admission), which will simply be the booking
details returned to you, these are sent daily normally. If you get the
manual one twice, do not worry, the "system" sometimes glitches. The
manual response is your ticket and acceptance of your booking.
You might like to print the manual response, just in case for some
reason we do not have your reservation at the door.
To change your booking please use the "Change Ticket" button/form on the
web site. NEVER JUST SEND AN E-MAIL TO BOOK TICKETS OR CHANGE A BOOKING
as we may not see it.
NOW I note that you have used booking for "new" customers.
I NOW WANT TO LET YOU IN TO A SECRET THAT WILL
SAVE YOU LOTS OF TIME.
I now have all the important details about you I need for my file, so
you can, for future bookings fill out a much shorter form hidden on the
web site just for my regular customers. (Information
about how to find this will be sent to you after you book.)
I look forward to seeing you at the up-coming gig you have booked for,
your manual response should follow in a day or so. If it does not for
any reason please do NOT fill out the form again, complete the "Change
a booking" form and in the comments say you never had your booking
Finally, if you have provided a telephone number great, but if not can
you let me have one next time you book, I do not use them for marketing
I promise, but they are handy to have.
