It says I didn't enter a valid postcode. Does this mean only UK residents can enter? :cry: I was actually trying to be there on the 7th for the art gallery, and if I got a ticket to this I would definitely make it my mission to go. I had a BBC Music Awards ticket that I will probably not be able to use since that's on the 11th. I feel so stupid. Maybe I should just give up on trying to see them. This sounds really depressing, I'm sorry.

Does anyone know the address of the place please? I'm frantically trying to plan a way of making to the gig even though I haven't applied for tickets yet. On the gig day I have training for work until 4:30pm and will then have to make my way to wherever it is for the start of the show at 6:45pm. I'm assuming it's in London which can take an hour to an hour-and-a-half to travel to (and that's only to London Kings Cross) x

I'd assume its UK only because its BBC, you can check their T&C's though.

Wait, when you said UK only did you mean by people who currently live in the UK or they only allow UK residents!?
