We hope to come but it'll be the Sunday and Monday only.

We have a prior engagement at the finals of the Babcock Armed forces Championship Army vs Navy rugby at Twickenham. It's a great day, great fun with an amazing atmosphere (crowd was 72000 last year), with all proceeds to military charities, so can't blow it off.

Hope it's ok to come?
