Hello.. It is not impossible to get tickets..I was at last years toy show.. I just emailed into the show (email address on the RTE website). I have no connections to anyone related to the show. It was a brilliant night we got lots of freebies!! I know I was very lucky to get the tickets, I was sitting in the front row in the first two seats (me & mum) and we were shown a few times everyone at home saw us!
I did not write a boring “to whom it may concern I love the show please can I have two tickets… etc” I wrote a comical letter. Basically you have to catch the attention of the audience co-ordinator make them think okay this person is worthy of a ticket. I’m guessing that is why I got the tickets.
You have to write / email in during September & October so its too late now 🙁
