Organisers of the Edinburgh International Book Festival have hit out at eBay sales of tickets to see Sir Sean Connery reading from his memoirs, ‘Being a Scot’. Tickets to the event had an original price of Â£9, and sold out in under an hour, the fastest selling event in book festival history. Inevitably, some of the tickets made their way onto eBay, where according to The Scotsman, they have been selling for Â£100 each. Frances Sutton, the Festival’s press manager, said she was “extremely disappointed” that tickets had ended up on eBay. She’ll no doubt be pleased to hear that at time of writing, I can’t find any tickets to see Sir Sean for sale at all.
