Lucky enough to get tickets to sit in the lounge, fantastic experience. Was sat with a snooker player. The food was nice and the free drinks were plentiful.

Unfortunately, we don't have a snooker museum at the Crucible. When the tournament is with us there are snooker related events in the Winter Gardens if you are able to get to any of those during the run of the tournament
