Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

Just posting this here in case it helps anyone out getting sorted for tickets: I was without passes after the weekend debacle, but got an email from Vue today saying give us a call, we've got full passes for you if you want to contact us with your payment details. The email and contact number were a...

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

there have been mixed messages from Vue so far This is why I'm not worried at all about the "lack of communication" from the organizers. I've been to Frightfest every year on full weekends since 2008 and they've always been incredible, way beyond what you can expect from any festival, any size. I u...

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

Does anyone know if there is any chance at all of further festival passes being made available for people to grab a pair? I need something to cling to! After trying for so long on Saturday, and actually getting a pair of passes in my "basket" on several occasions only for the payment system to deny ...

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

, but maybe it's just a case of too much success. Maybe there's too many of us for the available screens. I don't think this is necessarily the case. In my 6.5 hour experience online yesterday and 5 phone calls to Vue, it is apparent the problem was entirely caused by the settings on their ticketin...

But sadly it won't let me buy two together or select single ones due to leaving a space! Same madness as the last 7 hours.

Thanks for the heads-up though. This is so frustrating :twisted:

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

Vue are tweeting that festival passes are all sold out.

6.5 hours trying and I couldn't get the tickets. Very, very sad - and I need a drink now!

Well done to all who prevailed! (Did anyone manage to get a pair together?)

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

It seems that the Vue booking system has a £300 limit so that two tickets at £170 cannot be bought together! Crazy.

The blame is with Vue, no one should be having a go at the FF boys.

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

Does anyone else think that Vue should refund the thousands of pounds they will have made from us all waiting on their 10p/minute telephone line to the FF boys to donate to a charity of their choice?

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

I was just told on the phone to Vue that the reason they cannot sell festival passes over the phone is because they are having the same problems we are with the computer booking. Someone else at Vue said they were told last night not to sell any on the phone. That means they knew about this yesterday.

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

I tried to give up trying - but I appear to still be on autopilot submitting my card details (which I now know off-by-heart!)

Any recent success stories to give us hope?

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

In conclusion: I've wasted 3 hours of my time. I've been charged multiple times for tickets I haven't got. I've given Vue £3 for the pleasure of waiting on a phone line for information they could have given in a recorded message (no festival passes). The customer service line is closed, so I have to...

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

So I get this error message after 2.5 hours of trying buy passes: "There has been an error with your booking and you may have been charged, please contact Customer Services on 0345 308 4620, tweet @vuehelp or email customerservices@vuemail.com" I ring the number but it's not open on weekends!

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

I've entered various card details a couple of dozen times - did anyone eventually get success after being declined?

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

Constant card refusal - don't know what to do. The funds are there.

No reflection on the FF boys, but Vue need an absolute kicking.
