Hello everyone,

Me and my friend have all but paid now for our Thompson package that will take us to Melbourne and Sydney for the Ashes with the BA. I see on here that there will be a BA Christmas and NY party at certain locations, this may seem a silly question but do we have to buy the tickets separate for the functions in advance or can you purchase on the door when we get there?

This is the first time I have been out of the UK at the age of 24, so I am going in at the deep end. Any first timers who are also travelling out are very more welcome to join up with us.

I'd buy the tickets on here mate, that way you know you're getting in! The links for the tickets are under the tours section on the top. Press Melbourne for the Christmas one and sydney for NYE. Not sure how much the Christmas one is but the NYE one is £30 if you're a BA member. This is my first tour with the BA, I'm only doing the sydney test but I've booked into the NYE party as I've heard it's really popular and was sold out on the last tour! Matty

For Christmas Day you will need to book up now, the events has already sold over 50% of the available seating capacity and it will certainly sell out. It was one of the best ever events the Barmy Army has organised and we are hoping that we can match or even exceed the 2010 event.

Likewise the best advice is to book now for NYE at the Paragon , getting an exclusive party venue in this area for us to party is fantastic and there will be great party atmosphere with a leading Sydney band booked to play. If there are any unsold tickets they will be available on the door but I think this will be unlikely.

I would recommend anyone going to Oz to join us as a member, not only will you save almost half the membership cost by booking Christmas Day and NYE we have negotiated many additional discounts for members and you will also get fast passes into all of our HQs as several had long queues in 2010 and we will make sure that those who join us always get priority on tour. Today we have arranged free entry to Royal Randwick races for New Years Day which in the past has been a very popular way to recover and kick on again. To pay on the gate is $15 or a tenner. There are another 30 or so members offers in place and several more in the pipeline.

We are members already - can you list or point to where those member offers are? Thanks.
