If it is just us then at least we won't have to fight the crowd to get to each table
:P
Is there really so little interest in this or are people just undecided so far?

I am one who is undecided whether to go and I've attended everyone since it started. If you look at the replies, e.g. one, I think that probably tells you something.
Can I ask Pippa, what exactly will we get if we purchase a VIP ticket? So often, in many types of shows they advertise VIP tickets/rooms at an extra cost for them only to be found extremely disappointing.
I've also been invited to a couple of distillery tours that day, so I'm weighing up my options.
Will I go? Probably 70/30 in favour, cause I'm a sucker for "Whisky Live", although I know of many people who will not be attending this year.

Booked my ticket.

I think Whisky Live Glasgow should do well this year as the Whisky Fringe sold out really quickly.

There will be 4 in our party - we've not missed one since the days of George Street. We used to go to London as well but now just come here as we can't afford both.

We'll travel up on Friday and make a weekend of it as we live in West Yorkshire.

We've gone for the VIP tickets - I hope they are worth the extra.

I was at the Fringe on Saturday, another excellent event. Hopefully WL Glasgow will compete this year after a bit of a dodgy one in 2009.

Got VIP tickets also. As asked previously, what will be the difference between the VIP & the standard day ticket apart from the designated area & better food? :?
Will there be anything in the local paper about the event?
