      When an event becomes full (and before RSVPs are closed), people can add themselves to a WAIT LIST. People are moved off the WAIT LIST in order when spots open up. So please no going around the queue!

    I just discovered this event and would love to come, but It seems like the RSVPs just closed. Can I (and other people that didn't rsvp) just show up tomorrow? Oxana (who just commented) and other people may not be bale to come, so maybe we can take their place.

    • Geoff

      Hi Simon, the RSVPs are closed because the capacity of the venue has been reached after taking into account probable no-shows. Also there are people on the WAIT LIST. So people who have not RSVP'd and are not on the YES LIST should not just show up. But, if it turns out there is space I will be in touch. Cheers, Geoff
