Many people took to Twitter to share the trouble they had experienced.

Josh Coles said: 'Why are all the Norwich advanced sales closed/unavailable? #StarWarsTheLastJedi'

While @SJRAnimations tweeted: 'Norwich Odeon tickets have been down for ages.'

A spokesperson for Odeon responded to both tweets saying that they were 'working on a tech issue for Norwich'.
