However I will not give up and I will not give in! Ie I will keep hassling them!
Ah right i guess I haven't won then think I will head down and try my luck anyway...

So do you still have a chance do you think or will they have to say rules are rules and all that?

Aye, worth a go! I was just referring to Jimmi saying that 9am was the cut off so wondered if his entry would still be allowed or not.

Well, I think I'll just try a few times tomorrow and see what happens. Play the sympathy card etc and you never know? I emailed the dj back and asked if he could let me know if anything comes available but I doubt I'll hear.
I know someone who works in marketing at the council and although the Museum is separate they may be able to work something out for me. In short I'll do all I can!

I would encourage all and sundry to emulate me in all ways. It's honestly worth a go, worst that happens is they tell you to go away.

Can't believe I've won. Think this is the first Manics competition I've ever won.
Well done.Have a great time

Wish they'd actually tell us about these things though but then when in the last 10 years or so hasn't FD had the news before the official site

Well I've sponged off plenty of your +1's before, so it's about time it was the other way around
