Enter Shikari are doing a free show at the University Of Hertfordshire in Hatfield on December 22. The reason is that 500 ticketholders were unable to make the original date on December 19, which went ahead anyway, So, now the band are offering any ticketholders who couldn’t make it the chance to get in for nothing by turning up with their unused ticket. And if you did make it along, then you can also see this for free. Bring along your ticket stub or confirmation of purchase email.
