It seems to violate eBay rules to sell them one (see below). It's certainly disappointing for those of us that missed out to see people profiting rather than enjoying.

UPDATE: eBay seems to be removing these listings pretty quickly.

Tickets to free events

Most tickets to events where all tickets are free to the public are not allowed. However, eBay may consider requests from event organizers whether to prohibit the sale of these tickets. Examples include, but are not limited to, charity events, religious events, memorial services, and school graduations.

Are the free tickets just a "one-off', or will there be more opportunities to get up the Shard?

Well, you can pay to go up the Shard once it opens in February.
There are still some free tickets being given out tomorrow but you'd probably have to go to a library that was closed today.

Was lucky enough to claim a couple of free tickets on Wednesday but have just realised that the ONLY day we are busy in January is Saturday 26th, which is when we have the tickets for. I have two tickets for 1.30pm on the 26th and would be willing to swap for a Sunday slot. Please get in touch if interested.

Big queue at 8am outside the library in The Blue this morning, I assume that they’re giving away Shard tickets, unless they’ve got a particularly good book in! Might be worth a look if anyone’s interested.

I couldn't make it to John Harvard yesterday and queued up at the Blue Anchor this morning. I was about 25th in the queue and they had distributed their allocation before I got to the front of the queue.

If anyone has two spare tickets for Sunday (anytime) or is unable to swap their Sunday tickets I would be very grateful if you would be interested in passing on a couple of tickets.

Many thanks!

Bit late in the day but you can still get tickets at 2pm today at Brandon library off Walworth rd and Grove vale library don't know where that is.

This is according to S/C.

This could get confusing!

We too have been lucky enough to get 4 tickets for Sunday 27th at 1.30 but are hoping to swap these for 4 anytime Saturday.

Note, I am not replaying to Betty as my friend has already been in touch with her hoping to do a similar swap.

Hi Betty,
not sure if you got my PM but Id like to swap with you if you are still interested. I have 4 tickets for Sunday 27th Jan at 2pm.
