    Just now hearing about the collapse of the balcony in the London theatre. Everyone ok, as well as friends and family, I hope?

    I know Dawn's parents live near London, but attending a show doesn't mean you have to live there. Was worried that someone one of our members knew might have been at the theatre.

    It looked to be a really bad disaster. People being carried out on stretchers, and ambulances all over the place. One person who was interviewed said she and her brother thought it was sound effects, then the entire balcony came crashing down. Absolutely terrifying...

    I don't know anyone affected but I do know that a few years ago I was sat in that balcony with Adrian and Steven. Horrible.

    it's one of those things that i worry about sat in our old theatres. I'm guessing though there's going to be some thorough checking going on now though

    Same as Dawn, I sat in that balcony some time ago to watch a show. It's awful to think that could happen, it's not something that has ever crossed my mind. How terrible.

    Good grief. Yes, it is a terrifying thought, isn't it? One time when I was seated in a theatre balcony I could feel it "moving" when the audience clapped and started stamping their feet. That scared me then!

    When we were watching Nitro Circus again recently we were up in the balconies, the only thing that I thought was "eeek the stairs up and down to the seats are very steep!"
    I think next time I'll book earlier so we can get seats at a lower level...
