Leonardo Resale Ban
The National Gallery's winter blockbuster Leonardo: Painter at the Court of Milan is so heavily booked that £16 tickets are being sold on eBay and Viagogo for up to £400. (Don't say I didn't give you plenty of time to order tickets.) The gallery has warned that resold tickets will be cancelled without refund and holders refused admission, in accordance with the conditions on its website. It is also contacting various firms and websites to request that they stop reselling its tickets (title link). At £400, this isn't simply punters trying to resell tickets they can't use. It's naked profiteering. Not by London Art News readers, I hope.
