Radio recording of new panel show 'Never Mind The Woodcocks'

This exciting meetup is one that I really wish I could attend, but sadly will be happening when I'm off to Canada for the holidays. However, I strongly encourage all of you lucky enough to get some tickets to go on over to this one, because it promises to be a very entertaining evening!

Catherine Beazley, one of our lovely members, has been working on this nature-themed comedy show (she mentioned it at a previous meetup that some of you attended) and has suggested it as a meetup. Catherine says this about the evening:

"The show will be presented by Chris Packham with two teams made up of comics/naturalists/comics that are amateur naturalists (think QI but strictly nature based material). It should be a good giggle!

If you’d like to come, please go to where you will find ‘never mind the woodcocks’ under the ‘current shows’ section. If you’d like to come and have any problems getting tickets, please let me (Catherine Beazley) know. Any questions, give me a shout! Doors open at 6.45pm."

***PLEASE NOTE: You have to apply for these tickets, and there is a limited supply. So when you sign up for the meetup, please go to the above link straight away and apply for your tickets. Again, if you have trouble securing tickets please let Catherine know, as she says, and she might be able to help you out***

A description of the show from the SRO website:

Can a cockroach live for a week without its head? Can an octopus get an erection? Can a comedian tell the difference between badger and bat poo?

Join wildlife expert and TV presenter Chris Packham for the pilot of his hilarious new comedy wildlife panel show,Nevermind The Woodcocks, and you might well find out.

Our host Chris is joined by our two celebrity teams as they compete over a series of funny animal-based rounds.

Nevermind The Woodcocks is the new mischievous comedy panel show that proves what a completely entertaining place the natural world really is. A place where fact is always funnier than fiction.

The pilot is being recorded in London on Monday 17th December 2012 at The Rada Studio Theatre (formerly The Drill Hall), 16 Chenies Street, WC1E 7EX (nearest tube Goodge Street). If you would like to join us for a night of fun, then apply now!

    Hi Pat, I’m really sorry to hear that you and Gill were unable to get in to the recording. I don’t know how the SRO audiences wristband system works but it would seem logical that once you’ve been given a wristband, you should have a place secured. In terms of guest lists, those numbers should be accounted for so there shouldn’t really be extra people turning up last minute. I can understand how frustrating that must have been, especially as you had waited for an hour. I understand that a guaranteed entry ticket to another show is provided in such circumstances but this doesn’t make up for the issues on the night itself. In hindsight, such a recording isn’t necessarily the best event for a meet up as it’s tricky to get everyone together, even if ticketing runs smoothly. I do hope to meet you at another event soon. I, for one, am keener than ever to get out and about in the great outdoors due to Christmas over indulgence! Perhaps a good walk around Richmond Park or somewhere similar?

      Gill and I were unable to get in despite arriving in good time and getting wristbands. Apparently several employees and their friends tuned up at the last minute and upset the calculations. Very disappointed, especially as we had waited an hour in the cold (not allowed to wait in the building) because we were confident we would get in with wristbands. Not impressed with the organization and I am unlikely to go to another event like this. Also disappointed not to meet up with others!

    Hey Brenna,
    I think/hope it went well! Some rounds worked better then others but i really hope people enjoyed it. The only members of the group i saw were the lovely Lynne and lovely Xenia. I hope others had a good evening and i really look forward to more meet ups in the new year. Best wishes all. x

    Hello wild things! It’s great that more have signed up for woodcocks :) I can’t believe it’s now just around the corner. I believe this info will have been given on your tickets or an email with them from SRO audiences but I thought it was best to mention timings. Doors open from 6.45pm but (if possible) I would recommend getting there for 6.15pm or thereabouts. I was not aware of this but apparently around only a third of ticket holders generally turn up for recordings like this and for that reason, more tickets than seats are offered. If you are unable to get to the venue at recommended times etc. please drop me an email via [masked] and I’ll see what I can do. Please note, I’m not sure exactly what SRO’s timing advice is so please follow that if it’s different from my recommendations.

    I have a ticket for two. Does anyone need a ticket?

    Hi all, I think it'd be a good idea to meet inside once we show our tickets as Catherine suggests below. Bit too cold lately to be waiting outside!

    Susan - my email from SRO says E ticket clearly on the top, so it doesnt sound right. Probably best to give them a ring. They were very helpful when I called last week.

    Hello lovelies! I'm really glad that you're coming to the show. Susan, i'm not sure about the ticketing thing. I would recommend dropping the ticketing peeps an email to confirm that there isn't a missing attachment etc. or if you forward the email to me via [masked] i'm happy to look into this. Can anyone else confirm what their ticket emails featured? If anyone would like to come and doesn't have a ticket by Friday or Saturday, please drop me an email and i'll see what i can do :) In terms of meeting on the night, i must be the worst meet up host on record as i will be running around prior (and possibly during) the recording. However, Goodge st station is really rather close and once tickets have been shown, there will be a little wait in an area with a bar etc. before the seating call so one of these spots could work.
