I'm guessing as the Reg staff are based in London, it would hardly be worth their while paying a few hundred quid to travel up North to see potentially a crap show.

It's a tech journal after all.

I live nr Brum and if I want to find out about shows I simply subscribe to the local theaters. One plus side, is a smaller theaters around here often get some of the big comedy acts before they hit the main theaters and tickets cost about a tenner.

Go one better

"Something simple like changing the lightbulbs from fluorescent tubes to LEDs can make a noticeable difference when, in the case of 4D-DC, you have 148 to deal with. In that situation it halved the cost of lighting and reduced the heat load created."

Why have lights on at all?

You only need them on when you are working in there. Even then only light the area you are in.
