    I am miffed! Is the Berry Theatre a Hedge End asset or an Eastleigh asset or a British asset or what? How come these “free” tickets are just going to Hedge End voters (sorry, I mean people)? I repeat, I am miffed!

      It’s not the first time they have had to give away tickets Pete – even then they couldn’t get a full house…

      As it says in Ray’s article the tickets are being given away by the Town Council, not the theatre itself. I reckon it’s got to be OK for the TC to limit the benefit to Hedge End council tax payers.
