    They really want you to whore yourself out, I mean - show your talents. They're not looking for people to sit passively and lap up all the gifts and goodies. I've been through this before and almost had tickets but wasn't willing to do a party piece on national TV...

    Last Year the applications date closed around the 8th of November and all the successful applicants found out by the 13th of November. So a bit of a wait yet!

    dem tickets be MINE!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,328 ✭✭✭ washiskin


    Application in! Not a snowballs chance of getting them so I had a bit of fun with the form. :) O/h might not be amused with being referred to as a reformed Ebeneezer though..... :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,839 ✭✭✭✭ leahyl


    Yeah I applied but put down 'no' for the party piece bit...so no chance of tickets then :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,655 delw


    Applied but put my wifes name down for the crack,imagine she got a phone call to say she won tickets ha


  • Registered Users Posts: 35,955 ✭✭✭✭ Larianne


    There was a piece on the lunchtime news about the ticket application open and how last year there was something like 40,000 applications for 200 ticket lottery.
    Not sure how much of a lottery it is if they ask you all those questions.


  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 21,352 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Loughc


    I firmly expect next year they'll make the 40,000 audition ala Xfactor for the tickets haha :pac:


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,957 miss no stars


    Aww it's a shame they base it on party piece, I said I hadn't a clue what I'd do. Did say I would participate in audience games though? I'll have to develop a talent for next year. Still, fingers crossed.

    Tabnabs, did they really offer them contingent on saying you'd do a party piece?

    When was the last time someone from the audience actually performed a party piece on the show? There might be some messing with the toys etc but singing or dancing or performing a magic trick? With 40,000 applications for 200 places (basically 100 pairs of tickets) on a taxpayer funded station giving away several hundred euro worth of stuff it really should be a raffle or at least make it very clear it is some sort of a creative writing fiction contest about how you would recite "''twas the night before christmas" to the tune of Jingle bells while dancing The Nutcracker.

    It is said on the application form that:

    Section 2: Who are the tickets for?
    PLEASE FILL IN THE DETAILS BELOW Please note: persons under the age of 18 will not be admitted

    is toy show mainly for the Children?


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,921 ✭✭✭✭ hdowney


    The only children who attend are the performers. The Late Late audience has NEVER admitted anyone under the age of 18.


  • Registered Users Posts: 224 ✭✭ gumgum1

    Last year it was the 13th of November. Could be the same again this year.

    How many tickets do they issue you with if you win? Not interested in going on my own.

    Two tickets to everyone drawn. That means just over 100 people will get picked out of the tens of thousands who apply so I wouldn't be stressing about going until you get a phone all or email from them.

    I applied, doesn't hurt to apply. Don't imagine I'll be getting any calls!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,925 ✭✭✭ Sunny Dayz


    As they say... "if you're not in, you can't win!"
