Derek Lennard emailed me:
"I Thought your readers might be interested that when I tried to book this concert I was told that it would cost £36.45 per person including a 2 course meal. However when I mentioned that I had seen on their website that there were special deals the price went down to £19.95 per person(again inclusive of a meal). As there are 4 of us going a massive saving was made! "
