    Does anyone know when tickets are going to go on sale for the gala?

    I am assuming that there will be some kind of Covid restrictions like last Autumn's gala but I'm still keen to attend. Last Autumn's gala was excellent despite the restrictions.

    I hope the number of tickets still showing as available is not a reflection of poor sales. It would be a great shame because the MHR has provided an excellent operation - when permitted - during the pandemic.

    I booked a ticket for the Friday as soon as it went on sale. I got a booking number, but not a confirmation email (or any form of ticket for that matter). Has the same thing happened to others, or do I need to ring up and investigate?

    I got a booking reference and confirmation email. The email with booking reference said " Thank you for booking with Watercress Line Please bring a copy of this email or your 'Booking Reference' number when you come.*
    Note the email went to my junk email folder.

    So less than a week to go and still no loco roster! What is going on? I know some people are reticent to book simply because insufficient information is forthcoming. Come on MHR, the 2020 Autumn Gala was superb - so why the silence this year?

    That's my tickets booked for Saturday (a spur of the moment thing) looking forward to the event, especially considering how good the autumn one was!

    6435 was put on a low loader this morning, the Mid Hands Facebook page says 6435 going back to Cornwall, but it being replaced by another Pannier rumoured to be 6412 and another loco.
