SOLD OUT: Get your HfP Summer Party tickets TODAY from 1pm – great Etihad raffle prizes

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

As we announced on Monday, we are pleased to say that we are holding our first ever Head for Points reader Summer party on Monday 9th July.

We are taking over the The Glasshouse room at the Holiday Inn Camden Lock from 6pm to 8pm.  This is situated just a few minutes walk from Camden Town, Camden Road and Chalk Farm tube and National Rail stations.

The Glasshouse is a very light and airy space, with a small outdoor area, and should work well for a Summer party.

We are very pleased that Etihad Airways is sponsoring our Summer party.

This means that tickets will include your first drink for free and Etihad Airways will also be giving away a number of cool raffle prizes which I can now confirm.

The first prize is one business class return ticket to Abu Dhabi departing from Heathrow or Manchester. If the winner would like to purchase additional tickets, the Etihad team will do their best to secure a special HfP winners rate.

Etihad Business Class Studio

On an A380 from Heathrow, the winner will experience the impressive Business Class Studio which Rob reviewed here (pictured below) and was very positive about. The seats turn into fully flat beds up to 6 feet 8 inches long, the IFE screen is huge 18 inches and Business Class passengers have access to the bar which is designed to have the feel of a Mayfair private club.

The two runner up prizes are a football signed by Manchester City’s first team (i.e. the Premier League winners!) and a pair of general access tickets to a Manchester City game.

Back to the party details ….

The event runs from 6pm to 8pm.

A full cash bar will be available at standard Camden prices, so £5ish for a beer.  Your first drink, from a selection, is included in the ticket price.

The hotel will keep the bar open beyond 8pm if there is demand, and of course you have no shortage of other interesting places to eat and drink afterwards around the market and the wider Camden / Chalk Farm / Primrose Hill area.

How do I get my ticket?

Because we need to ensure that people who ask for tickets turn up, we are charging £10 per ticket.  This price includes VAT and covers our ticketing fees, venue costs and the hotel security fee (we are obliged to hire three security guards).

For clarity, only ticket holders who are in the room when the raffle is drawn will be eligible to win.

We are selling all of the tickets in one go, at 1pm today (Thursday).  With 250 tickets – 100 more than at Christmas – it should be easier to buy one.

We are using Eventbrite again.  Eventbrite has an excellent mobile app, so even if you are not behind a computer at 1pm you should still be able to purchase.  Set up an account with your credit card data before you head out.

The Eventbrite link to order your tickets is here.

You can buy up to three tickets per person but please don’t be nervous about coming on your own.  Frequent flyers are a friendly bunch and always happy to share details of their recent trips and miles-earning tips.

American Express is accepted by Eventbrite 🙂

We look forward to seeing you on the 9th July.

    TBH the price put me off.
    I hope everyone has a great time.

    • No joke says:

      £10? which includes a drink? Were you extracting urine?

    • Really? says:

      Er – a drink and a raffle ticket for a fabulous prize… can’t imagine what you’d class as value for money…

    • mohammed mohammed says:

      I thought the same!

  • Sundar says:

    Lucky to get a ticket in this year after missing out last 2 year’s. Looking forward to meeting many like-minded.

  • Kinkell says:

    Oh well, I’ll just have to go to Wimbledon instead, and take up my centre court tickets that arrived today!

    • Rob says:

      I have centre court debs, you should have bought them off me instead!

      • the real harry1 says:

        £50K seems a bit steep unless you can sell on a few days (allowed)

        • TC says:

          Has been explained before, either here or on FT, how buying debentures at Wimbledon is (for now anyway) a one way bet.

          So long as you have the £50k or whatever burning a hole in your wallet…

        • Rob says:

          You’ll get £20k per year for the tickets if you’re lucky (assuming you never go yourself) and no less than £18k per year. You can do the maths.

        • the real harry1 says:

          sure can, not so different to me and O2, though I stopped doing that as risks got higher, MS requirement lower

      • Harry says:

        Interested in buying deb in the next round of issue in the next 1-2 years. Was it difficult / long queue, or just a matter of joining a mailing list? And is buying 2 twice as hard (hard to sell just single tickets?)

        • Rob says:

          They only sell in pairs. Existing holders get first pick and then No 1 Court holders (not many) get priority.

          No 1 will open up though as the refurbed court will have a lot more deb seats and, with the roof, they will be a lot more valuable.

  • vlcnc says:

    Website is not showing the mobile site on my phone anymore for some reason?

  • Chris says:

    OT: triggered the BAPP 241 voucher, posted in my BA account, am I safe to downgrade today? Haven’t yet been charged the fee as I only upgraded a week ago. Just want to make sure before the downgrade!

    Anyone got any experience downgrading? Do they actually downgrade or is it a new credit application and therefore a different credit limit?
