    €120 gets you an awful lot of cerveza from the geezer with the shopping trolley around the square

    Hi Colin, I'm not sure why but your post did not appear in my alerts :confused:
    Anyway, Just had the email from Mybalcony and did a double take - I think they are taking the piss tbh, we paid €50 in 2018 and €65 march this year!
    I'll wait to see what others charge but if they start coming in at similar prices then I won't be bothering next year,

    @elmo, @Illusion Fireworks, @blackbat, @Firework Crazy

    Anybody heard from MascletaExperience? (the top Balcony above Mybalcony and the ornate one) I emailed a contact from a couple of years ago & they said its almost fully booked yet there has been no update on the website for this years bookings. They said some places left if I wanted let them know and I can transfer the payment........I'm a bit suspicious :confused: - nothing new on their fb page either

    If it's dry I'd far rather not be crammed in a room trying to get near the window...:rolleyes: I suspect, though, that the corporate entertainment industry has it's eyes on this as with so much; if so, expect the cost to go up big time.

    I think you are bang on there, we paid 18€ back in 2014, this year 70-120€ is being asked. I think they are tring to keep the 'riff raff' out :confused:
    Based on even last years prices, if Mybalcony sold out (which is very probable) they will have taken over €90K during March:eek:

    There was a time when all you needed was the "Cerveza, Cerveza Muy Frio" man, but they are getting rarer now to the point it's easier to take your own

    might get some of these

    Do - should provide some entertainment for the rest of us while we're waiting, and you'll give the cerveza man something to head for...:D

    La Seu Catering Balcony prices are out, (one @Firework Crazy used?) €77 most days. I don't think we will bother anymore, they are getting greedy. - they are selling 100 places for that ornate balcony - a space you can barely fit 30 people on comfortably o_O
