FREE Tickets - Who Do You Think You Are 2014

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Carol Report 28 Jan 2014 11:02

As you are all probably aware the 2014 show at London Olympia is coming up. The show dates this year are, Thursday 20th, Friday 21st, Saturday 22nd February. We usually run a FREE raffle for the chance to win entrance tickets. This year is no exception and we have 5 tickets to give away, the ticket is valid for any of the show dates and covers the entrance fee to the show only. All you have to do is add your name to this thread to enter the raffle. The draw will take place on Friday 7th February and all winners will be contacted by private message on this website. Please do not add your name unless you intend to use the ticket as this would be a waste of an expensive ticket.
Good Luck

Please include me.....thanks :-D


Carol Report 7 Feb 2014 17:21

Well as there was only 6 entrants you have all won, can you all please email me your real name and address, do not post it on here or send me a message on here, it must be sent by email to and we'll post out the tickets out next week. If you wish to buy us 2 cups of tea and bring it to our stall at Olympia (as you enter the hall and go down the steps, turn right and we are further up next to one of the cafe's) first stall on the right wall, we get so busy we do not have time to stand in the queue to get a cup. A free wall chart for anybody that comes up with 2 cuppa's. Bring plenty of money, you'll need it. Enjoy

Email sent - thank you Carol and Ron :-D


nameslessone Report 7 Feb 2014 17:57

Many thanks - email sent.


Londonbelle Report 7 Feb 2014 17:59

Mine is sent too - thanks Carol & Ron :-D


LaGooner Report 7 Feb 2014 19:19

Thank you Carol and Ron, I am looking forward to seeing you both again


Carol Report 25 Feb 2014 11:25

Thank you very much to all those that bought is a cuppa at the show, much appreciated. The organisers have dropped a clanger for next year, they forgot to book the hall, even the traders do not know what is going on next year as Olympia is fully booked, Earls Court is being demolished soon so they can't hold it there and the Excel Center, an alternative venue in London is being refurbished next year so everybody is booking their events at Olympia, there is a rumour that the show is going to the NEC Birmingham next year but this has yet to be confirmed. I hope the rumour is true, it costs us a fortune to go to London if the show moves to Birmingham we will save a lot in expenses. I'm watching the WDYTYA Live page on Facebook but I anticipate that the answer to next years show will come out in an email first. When they announce the venue I'll post it on GR General Chat.

Best Wishes.
Carol & Ron

Thanks Carol & Ron - if it is moved to the NEC, it will give different people the opportunity to attend.


nameslessone Report 25 Feb 2014 15:30

Carol & Ron - I was delighted to bring you tea and thanks so much for letting us know about next year.
Moving northwards might rejuvenate the show as I am sure not so many went this year as have in the past.
