Discount for Kite Runner if want to go to seminar

I’ve been told that Matthew is keen for people attending the seminar to see the show as well, because he’ll be talking about it in depth in the seminar. But I’m very happy to offer your group a significant discount on the show if that would help? Tickets are usually up to £26.50 for The Kite Runner, but for £12 per person, I can offer your writing group members both a ticket to the show for any performance you’d like to attend, plus a space on the writing seminar. Does that sound ok to you?

Here are details of how to claim the offer if it’s of interest:
We would like to offer you £12 tickets for The Kite Runner. All you need to do is quote “KITE12″ when you call the Ticket Office on 01865 305305. For more information about the production, visit http://www.oxfordplayhouse.com. Offer ends 5pm on Saturday 13 September

Please do let me know if you have any further questions or would like more details.
