More re Tutankhamun in London

Tutankhamun in London

For those of you either in the UK or planning to visit the UK whilst the Tutankhamun exhibition is here, the most recent news that has been released is as follows. An email has been sent to those who pre-booked "certificates" online (effectively a reservation to purchase a ticket to the show):

Dear Certificate Holder,
Thank you for pre-registering for tickets to Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs, London. This email is to remind you that you will have the opportunity to buy tickets for this once-in-a-lifetime event before the general public, ensuring ticket availability.

You will receive a follow up email on 10 September telling you how to purchase your tickets. Once you receive the email, you will have approximately 48 hours to buy your tickets before they go on general sale. Due to overwhelming demand, it is strongly recommended that you purchase your tickets during this presale period.

Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs opens at The 02 on 15 November and runs until 30 August 2008. This spellbinding exhibition will feature over 130 Ancient Egyptian Treasures. The last time Tutankhamun's treasures visited the UK, over 1.6 million people attended, making the "Treasures of Tutankhamun" the most successful exhibition in UK history.

Your window to pre-purchase exhibition tickets before the general public will expire on Tuesday, 11 September at 5 PM.

I believe that certificates are still available. For more details see the Tutankhamun Exhibtion website above.
