Review of KALUKI NYD: ALBERT HALL & ALBERT\'S SCHLOSS CONNECTED

Amazing night with really good Djs, would definitely go again and recommend. My only downfall was I believe the event was over sold leading to extreme queuing and squashed environment.

This email was sent on the 3rd of January and I'm yet to have a response. Here's your review.

To whom it may concern at the Albert Hall team,


I'm hoping this email doesn't fall on deaf ears and is read and taken seriously.


Me and my friend attended your New Years Day event Kaluki, you can see the first two attachments which are screenshots from my skiddle app on my phone, 50 each I paid for these on day of release. I'm not sure how it works but I'm sure you'd be able to link it to myself - Mr Jordan Hatton.


The fourth attachment is an email you should have received recently from the friend I went with, Mr Cameron Fox. He was wrongfully evicted from the building only an hour, maybe an hour and half into the night, wAFF was still performing his set I believe. We had been on the balcony upstairs and wanted to go downstairs to the smoking area, Cameron was on his phone messaging his dad and slipped slightly on the stairs, I was a couple steps behind him. I'm more than sure this would've been captured on CCTV within the premises. Next thing we know he was grabbed by two security guards working that night, accusing him of being 'too intoxicated' and made a comment about his eyes, suggesting he had taken drugs. Might I add the force they grabbed him with, it caused him to drop his phone, resulting in the back completely smashing. Which we can wholeheartedly deny, we had a few beers before we entered the venue and Cameron bought two more drinks, 8 each I think it cost him - absolutely no illegal substances were taken between the two of us, I even told the security upon my initial arrival I had 10mg of Diazapam tablets on me due to my anxiety just in case, so why would I be taking illegal substances when on prescribed medicine?


If you see attachment three there's a tweet from a complete stranger making comments on the prices of alcohol within your bars and also makes references to people taking drugs. Yet it's amazing how many people are able to take drugs into these events and not be forcefully told to leave, what good is a 'sniffer' dog and patting down security if so many drugs make their way into the venue.


I just honestly can't justify the pair of us being thrown out of the venue due to Cameron losing his footing on the steps, I'm almost certain he wasn't the first and definitely wouldn't have been the last to nearly lose his footing, but to suggest we had been taking drugs and forcefully pull him out towards the front/exit is ridiculous. I of course questioned what had happened and then was told to follow him out. I was not once rude, forceful or aggressive might I add.


I then pretty much pleaded our innocence, which I still believe isn't unjustified at all, I spent a good hour outside having numerous conversations with police officers, I know they don't have the power etc. to allow us back into the venue but even then the situation didn't change, in that hour I maybe saw two or three other people told to leave the venue the same way we did, I couldn't tell you why as I wouldn't have been listening. After the civil conversations we/I had with the police officers, I genuinely asked them 'does it look like we have taken drugs?'. Guess what their response was, it was no.


At the very least I'm expecting a response from you, is a refund even out of the question? I certainly don't think so.


You can guarantee I won't be attending any of your future events, which is a shame as before this absurd incident I was an avid goer to Albert Hall.


I won't be afraid to take this further if needs be or I don't at least get a response.


Regards,

Jordan Hatton
