After responding with disappointment to the offer from Kings Place due it’s restrictive terms and conditions (i.e. free tickets only before 5.15pm on a weekday for locals) I would like to publish Kings Place’ official response:
Thank you for your recent feedback on our neighbour promotional offer. I am sorry to read that you are unable to take up our offer and appreciate how frustrating this must be for you.
Kings Place Music Foundation is a charity, which runs concerts in the building and development of community projects. This is funded by revenue from ticket sales.
Our aim however is for our program to be accessible to the wide ranging community which is why our tickets are affordably priced. Our offer was designed to be a gesture to the local community while respecting our aims and values as a charity.
Once again please accept our apologies that you were unable to take up our offer, however we hope that, as a valued neighbour, you will be able to enjoy the facilities of Kings Place in the future.
With regards, Christian
