HKLady, contrary to VK’s assertion, the premium for a VIP ticket last year was worth it –
a) fasttracked through entrance saving 10+ mins queuing in the rain and mud.
b) Additional spacious lounge to have a respite from the showers.
c) Recipe book to give to a friend.
d) More taste crowns which nearly paid for the extra cost of the VIP ticket.
The great unflossed were certainly not mixing in the BAEC area when I was there.
