Oli Norman, CEO of itison and creator of Elfingrove, said: “The reaction’s on par with some of the biggest stadium gigs in the UK which is just phenomenal for a brand new, home grown event.
“We’ve been planning for huge levels of extra traffic to itison and put extra measures in place to support this however we’re aware some folk experienced issues getting their tickets this morning and would like to apologise – we know how frustrating it can be. Most visitors were able to purchase without issue.
“As locals ourselves, we’re immensely proud and excited to be taking over the city’s most loved museum for what’s going to be a completely magical Christmas experience.
“Our elves have been working round the clock and the site is now stable with tickets still available.”
Limited early bird tickets are still available, exclusively on www.itison.com/elfingrove
