Question

Given the popularity of the display and that only 82,000 ticketholders turned up, will you consider selling a higher number of tickets in future years to ensure that both the maximum number of people can attend and a higher cost recovery can be made from ticket sales?

Due to operational safety the GLA is not permitted to "oversell" for the event and can only issue the number of tickets for the capacity agreed at the LOSPG (Licensing, Operational and Safety Planning Group).
