Pandemics notwithstanding, Prom season is starting again and it’s time to apply for tickets to attend the Last Night of the Proms 2021. Most of the tickets go to people who attend the Proms, which is fair enough, as it’s their event, but there are some tickets for the rest of us as well.
For all methods of requesting tickets, only one application for a maximum of two tickets can be made per household.
The One-Concert Ballot
People who buy tickets for at least one concert at the Royal Albert Hall are eligible to enter the One-Concert Ballot.
When booking online, tick the Ballot opt-in box – or when booking by phone, in person or by post, inform the Box Office that you wish to enter this ballot.
If you are successful in the ballot, you can apply to buy a maximum of two tickets for the Last Night; you will not be obliged to buy Last Night tickets should your preferred seating area not be available.
The Open Ballot
A proportion of tickets for the Last Night of the Proms at the Royal Albert Hall will be allocated by Open Ballot. No other ticket purchases are necessary. Only one application (for a maximum of two tickets) may be made per household.
