Council touting more tickets for the O2

The Council are once again selling tickets in their (our?) corporate box for events at the O2.

This time it's the Disneyland Adventure, which I think is some kind of show on ice.

Greenwich Card holders can try to "win" the chance to buy the tickets. The "lucky" winners can then pay the Council £40 for the tickets, which is the same price as the most expensive tickets that anyone can buy through Ticketmaster for the same event.

Is it really much of an offer or a competition if you're paying the price of the most expensive tickets?

The full email is below, once again they've not given people much time to respond to it:

Latest offer from GreenwichCard...

Come down to The O2 to see the Disneyland Adventure featuring The Incredibles, along with Syndrome, Frozone and Edna Mode.

GreenwichCard is offering you the chance to watch your favourite superheroes from Greenwich Council's corporate suite on Thursday 18 October at 7.30pm; Friday 19 October at 7.30pm; Saturday 20 October at 12noon or Tuesday 23 October at 2.30pm. Tickets are £40 each and there is a maximum of four per person.

To have a chance of winning please email telling us how many tickets you would like for which show, and including a daytime contact telephone number.

Deadline is 12noon on Tuesday 16 October. We will draw the winning names out of a hat and inform the winners on Tuesday afternoon.

Sounds much more like a booking line, where they simply don't have to tell people whether they've got a ticket until tomorrow afternoon.

It'll get people in though, competitions always do.
