Last Night tickets information

Owing to high demand, the majority of tickets for the Last Night of the Proms are allocated by ballot.

The Five-Concert Ballot

Customers who purchase tickets for at least five concerts at the Royal Albert Hall are eligible to enter the Five-Concert Ballot.

You must do this before the Five-Concert Ballot closes on Thursday 31 May.

How to enter:

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 require a wheelchair space for the Last Night of the Proms, you still need to book for five concerts but you must phone the Access Information Line on 020 7070 4410 (9.00am - 9.00pm daily) by Thursday 31 May and ask to be entered into the separate ballot for wheelchair spaces. This ballot cannot be entered online.

Successful applicants will be informed by Friday 8 June.

Please note:

  • If you are successful in the Five-Concert 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.
  • If you are successful in the Ballot, your Last Night tickets will be issued from Friday 31 August.
  • If you are unsuccessful in the Ballot, we regret that no refunds for other tickets purchased will be payable.
