Thai festival Battersea London

Recommended Posts

Glad to hear the Battersea Park one is back on again after going AWOL last year.

I missed the one at Trafalgar Square last Saturday (don't think it was really advertised enough maybe). Went to the Chinese New Year Celebrations there a few months ago. The dancing was too far away in the distance really and found it too crowded too so didn't stay long.

Peronally, I'd have have double pricing here too. Make foreigners pay more and make our lives easier.. That's what they're for!

as much as anyone when i'm in los i find the place charming and engaging and you just live with the double pricing etc, let it go etc despite finding it annoying. but to have it here, regardless whether i'm going or not but just knowing the top brass-educated types have such arrogance to charge the barbarians but not the demur thai is just mind boggling....it has to be in breach of a race law....

 

Its no different from nightclubs letting women in for free and charging men...yes there is the principal of the thing, but 1) I want to be there

2) £3 isnt exactly a lot of cash.

If the weather looks OK I'll be there as the wife will enjoy it (she's Thai).

 

Chelseafan - Don't know if you remember but we met up about 6 years ago. Think I had a quick walk around and then stayed at the beer tent :beer:

Entrance £3 on day, free entry for children under 120cm and Thais."""""

 

Gee, doesn't that sound familiar? Even in falangland they overprice us :banghead:

 

 

You guys should be fighting/boycotting this event and raising hell about it all! Start charging them double!

Yes it is a breach of the race laws but if the organisers are the Thai embassy they will have immunity so its allowed.

 

Free for thais so what if the British Embassy organised a Brit day in Bangkok with Morris Dancers, Pearly Kings I'm sure I would not pay to get in.

 

STH I will try to get down

 

I'd pay fucking good money to see you Morris Dancing in the heat of Bangkok !
