If you'd like to buy tickets to any of the shows at the National Heritage Museum, they are now available to order through the BBU website. For Joe Val tickets, there is a different set of rules. Ticket sales & hotel reservations will begin on Tuesday, November 27th for current BBU members, and on Tuesday, December 4th for non-members. Word to the wise: if you're really interested in booking a room at the Sheraton, you need to be a BBU member and get registered early. For your convenience, you can join or renew your BBU membership through the BBU website.
