Six hundred extra free tickets for the Lincoln Olympic Torch Relay Evening Celebration will now be available from Tuesday, June 12, after technical problems with the booking system.
The City of Lincoln Council, which is organising the Lincoln leg of the Olympic Torch Relay and the Evening Celebration at Yarborough Sports Ground on Wednesday, June 27, made the extra tickets available on Wednesday, June 6, but a problem with the booking system at the Lincoln Drill Hall box office has meant that tickets cannot be assigned or printed.
Gavin Street, marketing manager at Lincoln Drill Hall: "We're experiencing a fortunately rare technical problem with our box office system and working hard to get things up and running again as soon possible.
"We know how frustrating this is for those hoping to secure Olympic Torch Relay Evening Celebration tickets and sincerely apologise for this temporary break in service and any inconvenience caused."
Anyone who would like to apply for the free tickets is advised to contact the Drill Hall after 10am on Tuesday, June 12 on 01522 873894 or www.lincolndrillhall.com, or call in to the venue on Free School Lane.
