If yesterday was a Terrible Tuesday in Canada Square, then today the Lord of music has tried to make it all better. In a completely bizarre turn of events, Andrew Lloyd Webber has pledged a pair of free tickets to see The Sound of Music or Joseph in the West End to any banker made redundant.
If you've got a P45 issued after 1 September you can show up at the box office of your preferred show any time up until 15 October to claim your tickets. The Lord said he hoped the shows would cheer up "those who have sadly lost their jobs" even if only for a couple of hours.
Another amazing publicity stunt from ALW - if only the problem caused by redundancies was as simple as solving Maria's.
