BRB at the O2 - food


Recommended Posts

Hi Janet,

 

It's fine to take your own food, especially if you are short of time because it can take quite a while to enter as there are only 2 main ways in.

Quite a few food stalls once you are in though, but likely to be busy !

 

I have sent you an email with my mobile number but not sure if I have your correct address. I am there Tuesday and Wednesday, would be good to see you.

 

Am very excited !

Hi Jean,

 

I am only there on Thursday matinee. I haven't received an email from you.

 

I'm glad you can take your own refreshments in. At the Echo Arena they even confiscated a box of biscuits I had bought as a present for someone in hospital! I kicked up such a stink that they agreed to hold them till the end for me and I did get them back eventually!

But do be aware that they remove the caps from any bottles you have on you.

 

Personally, I'm planning on eating elsewhere - I think it'll be a lot easier. I seem to remember that there are plenty of food places of a sort at Euston.

OTOH, if you check the T&Cs on your ticket wallet, it does say that external food and drink won't be allowed in. I only had a bottle of water with me last time, I remember, and maybe an apple or something, but don't remember a problem getting it through.

I've started a thread in What's Happening for discussion of the actual performances: http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/25-brb-nutcracker-at-the-o2/

 

It also occurred to me that we'd lost the link to the casting in the move, so here it is again: http://brb.org.uk/masque/index.htm?act=WhatsOn&urn=22737&tsk=fullcast

 

We've also lost details of any ticket offers, but here's one I remember: http://www.travelzoo.com/uk/local-deals/London/Entertainment/9532

Alison, thanks for the tips and relinking various threads. I took a bag of refreshments with me but had time to eat a light lunch in Cafe Rouge. Although the security men were checking bags and I could see them removing bottle tops they didnt even look in my bags even though one of them was an obvious M&S food hall bag. (I ate them on the train home!).
