Biggest Attendance at KP

Apologies if this has been discussed before , but for some time I've held the belief that we have had a few crowds of around 12000.
After spending a little time on it I have discovered that we did have 11750 in our Premiership winning season against Bath on 11th May 1998. I think it was our last home game of the season. (We averaged 5023 that season)
Anyone know of any others?
I've got a feeling that our safety certificate allows us to have max 10000 and the records show that we broke this by 1 on 29th November 2003 when we lost by 3 points to Wasps. This was the game where Jonny & Lol paraded the World Cup. I was there and I can remember thinking there were many many more than 10001! In fact, it felt fuller than the Bath game.Our average that season was 7570
I'm sure there were other occasions when we were full/possibly over the 10k
Anyone help?

Cup games?

I think the attendance on that day in 2003 was 10,201. No idea why but that figure is nailed into my memory for some odd reason. I also assume that is our highest ever attendance so can't imagine 12,000 sardining it into KP, it was a squeeze with 10,201.

Thanks Benpj
I found in the link that the capacity is 10200. Does it say anywhere how many were at the Wasps game in Nov 2003?
Sorry, I,ve just checked.I got my figure of 10001 from Wikipedia not Premiership Rugby

Official figures are of course 'tickets sold' rather than how many people are physically there.

If I remember right, the capacity when KP was built up was 10,000. The one extra 'person' at that Wasps game in 2003 was 'Bill', the World Cup trophy. Then a year later, they increased the capacity to 200 somehow, so sell-outs since then have been 10,200.

That Bath game at Gateshead was pretty good, a huge crowd on a dark night even though it was hoying down. The 'permanent' move didn't quite work out the following season though.
