Batsheva ticket buyers are being vetted

Very successful couple of days at the Lowry, they even brought out hot drinks for the second night protestors.

However although the performance was interrupted both evenings, we were lucky. Quite a number of us were refused entry. We now know as a result of an incautious tweet, that Stand With Us (aka Sam Westrop) worked with the Lowry to identify activists.
This is the same bunch who identified people on the Welcome to Palestine flight.

We should assume that any ticket bought by a known activist or anyone who does not pass the Google Test will not get into any of the venues.
We do not know if Westrop was given sight of the Lowry ticket applicants or if (and more likely) he submitted a list of “suspect” names for the management to check against their ticket applicants. In any event we have to look again at the applications.

We believe that anyone refused entry can get their money back, so nobody should not be out of pocket. However additional tickets should now be bought at all the venues, using friends, families etc to make the purchase. Once replacements have been obtained we can apply for a refund on the origainal tickets.

I will be writing to the Bradford theatre asking for a refund on the grounds that I have heard that the performance will be interrupted, and I will buy replacement tickets through a friend.
