  1. You should have warned us that the code dress is formal and also to mention that it's either by tickets or invitations!

  2. Dear Ahmad, I understand your disappointment at the dress code requirements as I have been myself denied entry the very first time I went to the Main Hall many years ago. Like it or not this has been a COH policy for many years and I warn about it in my post about the venue I hope you'll understand that I cannot repeat it at every post.
    As for the ticket, I submit the information I receive from the organizers. As a rule, it should be assumed that attending an event might be subject to an entrance fee (if I receive the price I post it) unless it is clearly stated in the post that the event is free.
