Free Events

Pre-concert events are held in the Concert Hall at Beit Venues, Imperial College Union. Family Workshops are held in the Dining Hall. Entry for all events is through Beit Quad, Prince Consort Road.

Pre-concert events are free of charge and unticketed (seating is unreserved), with the exception of selected recordings of radio programmes as detailed in the concert listings, for which free tickets will be available from BBC Studio Audiences.

Places must be reserved in advance for all Proms Family Orchestra & Chorus events and most Proms Sing events.

Seating at Beit Venues is limited and all free events are subject to capacity, so we advise arriving early for the more popular events.

Prommers who join the Royal Albert Hall queue before free events should make sure they take a numbered slip from one of the Royal Albert Hall stewards to secure their place back in the queue.

Latecomers will be admitted where possible but, as many of these events are recorded for broadcast, you may have to wait until a suitable break. The event stewards will guide you.
