As I said, its no biggy, I bought my ticket for me, and rules are rules. I can see why having a guy with the vip pass bring his wife and two kids in would be annying when trying to relax, but if a vip holer wants to bring a friend/partner then maybe they should have a system whereby the vip holder can nomonate just one person who can access the lounge etc. I know I would pay a bit more for that.
Then the benefits of this space where 20 people could relax for a while may well turn into a 40 person space,and if, as has happened Dad brings child who, as children are wont to do has a paddy, peace interrupted. Realistically I do not see a significant other/friend/relative being allowed entrance to the VIP area, but there is nothing to stop you putting your items in the VIP lounge ( details seem to indicate that there will be a crew member of in attendance at all times) and joining your girlfriend for a drink and food in the main arena, you never know it may well be lovely weather, as it was last October, and a coffee by the river could be rather romantic
