BOOKING
 
The easiest and best option is to book electronically by clicking on the TICKETSOURCE’ icon immediately below the event on the TVN website

PLEASE CHECK THAT YOU ENTER YOUR DETAILS CAREFULLY WHEN YOU BOOK.
If you have booked an event and do not get the link 2 days before the event, please message TicketSource to advise.  DO NOT LEAVE IT UNTIL THE DAY OF THE EVENT AS YOU WILL NOT GET A REPLY.  
 
Please note: Increasingly,  TVN events are becoming fully booked well before the actual date.  Nevertheless, we are disappointed to find that something like 20% of those who have booked places, fail to join on the day.  If you find that you are unable to join an event for which you have booked, please inform the organiser as soon as possible so that your place can be offered to someone else.
