Having previously chosen to pick up tickets from venue I logged into to my Ticketek account to see if I could change my request to find there is no history of my ticket purchases ( Dunedin/Welington ). I do have hardcopy/e mail confirmation to hand over at the venue but never the less will e mail Ticketek just to check :(


Had an email from Ticketek re issuing my tickets by e ticket rather than venue pickup, result :D

Did make me wander what would have happened if I had not query this :( I could quite easily see me pitching up at the ground and the ticket Office having no record of my purchase !


Another prob out the way Peter, you can relax and enjoy that beer now, tx in pocket.

There have been several topics on local beer, scattered throughout the NZ tour part of the forum....

I suspect your opinion will come down to what you drink. Cannot comment on lager but there seems plenty of Microbreweries including Speights and Montiefs(ph). I think some brew lager as well as cider and Real Ale....... I wil be visiting Speights Brewery in the Centre of Dunedin the day before the test

Wellington is very good as well apparently with those who have been before telling me of good bars in and around the Harbour

I think auckland will be good as welll but no real facts for that City....... Will do some research and revert
