Oxford, Mississippi Residents Win London Meet-and-Greet with Hamilton Creator

Two lucky Oxford residents, Kathy and John Herbert, won a trip to see Hamilton in London and meet the creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, after the performance.

Kathy won the trip through a giveaway organized by VisitLondon.com which included their travel to London as well as the tickets to the show and meet-and-greet.

“Winning this trip has been like a dream come true,” said Herbert. “There’s no doubt the highlight was to see the London production of ‘Hamilton’ and meet Lin-Manuel Miranda! He is such a nice and friendly man, and he even gave our three daughters a call to say hi. We had a really great time chatting to him, and the show was fabulous.” 

The Herbert’s are no stranger to London as they have a child in University in the UK, though this was their first time seeing it at Christmas time.

“We’ve had the chance to visit London before as one of our daughters goes to university in the UK,” said Herbert. “But seeing it at this time of year, with the Christmas lights and the festive spirit, has been absolutely wonderful. We can’t wait to come back.”
