Has anybody received their booking email yet?

twinkledag Mon 16-Oct-17 10:28:12

just got mine and its saying sold out!

Peasinthefreezer Mon 16-Oct-17 10:39:54

Same here logged on within five minutes of getting email and said sold out😡

Ilovechocolatetoomuch Mon 16-Oct-17 10:47:52

Me too, gutted. We have been every year. I am going to complain this is rediculous.

twinkledag Mon 16-Oct-17 10:50:19

Ridiculous isnt it?

Let us know how you get on with complaining ilove, tempted to do it myself!

Piccolino2 Mon 16-Oct-17 10:53:27

Aww, I haven’t had mine and boarding a plane. Guess it won’t happen this year now :-(

Ilovechocolatetoomuch Mon 16-Oct-17 10:56:15

I have sent and email so see where it gets me. Obviously it's only people who can afford to spend mega bucks in there who get to book now, not use everyday folk.

Duke of York Square's a nice alternative, and they don't start taking bookings until next month.

Same here - saw email 20 minutes after it had been sent and was sold out. We've been every year since my eldest was born and it was a lovely tradition sad

Ilovechocolatetoomuch Mon 16-Oct-17 11:04:32

Thanks evil doctor

Piccolino2 Mon 16-Oct-17 11:07:58

Just got my email. Obviously sold out. Will look into the Duke of York Square tickets. Anyone know when they go on sale?

Ilovechocolatetoomuch Mon 16-Oct-17 11:25:03

There is also winter wonderland Santa although I wouldn't like to think of the queues at the weekend, it might be o.k in the week.

EvilDoctorBallerinaVampireDuck Mon 16-Oct-17 12:04:03

I've just messaged them Piccolino, I know it's in November. We've been for the last 2 years.

GU24Mum Mon 16-Oct-17 12:08:34

We missed out too - I think you need to spend £££ to get priority booking. The Duke of York Square says it isn't hosting a grotto this year. Any other ideas?

Ilovechocolatetoomuch Mon 16-Oct-17 12:14:33

Royal Albert hall, hamleys? I just checked its 2000 before you go up to the next tier and 10000 to be in the black tier which is top.

LexyD1986 Mon 16-Oct-17 12:30:13

Apparently people were calling up up and making bookings from 9-am who hadn't even received their email yet. Seems like a very unfair system

EvilDoctorBallerinaVampireDuck Mon 16-Oct-17 12:36:14

And the bad news is: no grotto at Duke of York Square this year. 😭

SnowBallsAreHere Mon 16-Oct-17 12:37:30

Last year I set my alarm and booked in the middle of the night.

Clickncollect Mon 16-Oct-17 12:39:59

I logged in two minutes after getting the email and it was all sold out!

Ilovechocolatetoomuch Mon 16-Oct-17 12:40:55

I didn't realise you could call up and book without an email sad

LexyD1986 Mon 16-Oct-17 14:20:37

No neither did I, seems a hugely unfair system.

Ilovechocolatetoomuch Mon 16-Oct-17 15:00:05

Well so far they have told me that apparently there where tickets available for every tier. I have questioned how they all got booked in 5 seconds. I'll let you know what they say.

Bananalanacake Mon 16-Oct-17 15:08:16

Does Selfridges have a grotto. Sure I've seen one. They have a big Christmas shop.

Mumsthewordssshhh Tue 17-Oct-17 10:08:41

Any update on this @Ilovechocolatetoomuch
