EYB Swan Lake Wimbledon 2018

Recommended Posts

Hi, if ticket sales at Wimbledon don't pick up EYB won't be back! What a worry and such a shame. Trying to encourage all I know to come along as it will be a beautiful show x

Won’t be back ever? Yikes! Tricky trying to fill such a big theatre over the summer holidays- I have lots of friends who would come if they weren’t on holiday! I’ve suggested they make better use of twitter and Instagram and perhaps they should try and get RAD and other bodies involved by offering a discount to their members and the kids ballet schools...not long to go and lots of seats to fill!!!

I think the summer holidays and Bank Holiday weekend are real obstacles. We have bought 14 tickets so far between family and friends but will try to find other takers that are not on holiday. (My own Facebook pleas are starting to sound a bit desperate now though 😱).

EYB are in the Evening Standard today, so fingers crossed that translates into a few more sales. They have a strong FB presence, but they definitely need to get on Instagram!

People are keen until I tell them the price of tickets - it’s a big ask, one child and one parent from school are coming but they are paying nearly £50 to do so.

 

I do hope they can sell more - dd is desperate for them to come back soon. She’s absolutely loving being a courtier, though she’s hoping its not too hot as apparently the costume has lots of layers including a fur coat!

Yes we’d have lots more dance school attendees if there was a child price. Might also encourage them to audition themselves!

It's lovely to see so many dance schools supporting their dancers and publicising the event on their social media platforms. I thought the invitation to Principals and their guests to attend drinks in the interval and meet Miss Lewis was really nice too. Very impressed with the whole experience so far and looking forward to the "sneak preview" on Friday.

Congratulations! We had friends watching all three shows and they thought it was amazing! 

Hope you’ve got plans for the rest of the holidays as it’s going to seem flat after all of that!

It was quite amazing how much they had learned in two weeks - really impressive. I have no idea about the technical aspects, but I enjoyed watching and they looked like they were having fun.

 

I have a very tired dd this morning, but she’s still keen to know when (if!) EYB will be back in Wimbledon.

Wonderful show and some lovely memories created for the kids, (and their parents). Think Miss Lewis said at the presentation that they were last in Wimbledon 5 years ago and were possibly looking at going somewhere like Woking another time. I have a tired but very happy boy today. Love EYB and the positive performance opportunities they give the kids.

It was an amazing show!! We watched the final performance, lots of talented children all enjoying themselves. My dd has the best time and wants to do it all over again!

Well we can look forward to the DVD. Not sure how long they take to process. Even though it was sweltering heat when DD was rehearsing in Nottingham we missed the weekly rehearsals when it was over!

Me either. I guess they've been busy and a long way from home.

They don’t acknowledge orders, DVD usually arrives 4-8 weeks after the performance.
