  1. £15.50 is just a mental price to charge. That more than a cinema, with reclining chairs, air conditioning, state of the art sound and vision……! I get the novelty of it being open air but, even so!

    Why so expensive? Who organises this stuff??

  2. Isn’t the place supposed to be a memorial to people who have died, not a place to screen overpriced films?

  3. Well said BD- the Royal British Legion is continually dumbing down the whole reason the NMA was created. Visiting during lock down was like visiting a baby and toddlers outdoor play centre. Children were racing around the various monuments, families having picnics etc. They soon discovered that for a £4 parking fee they could let their little darlings burn off energy while having a catch up. For the many people visiting a monument to remember those lost in the many conflicts, it must have been distressing in the extreme.
