Thursday 24 April (2.00pm) to Friday 16 May (midnight)

Use the Proms Planner, accessible via bbc.co.uk/proms (see instructions below), to create your personal Proms Plan. Once completed, this is ready for you to submit as soon as booking opens at 9.00am on Saturday 17 May. The Proms Planner allows you to create and amend your personal Proms Plan at your leisure before tickets go on sale, at any time from 2.00pm on Thursday 24 April until midnight on Friday 16 May. Submitting your Proms Plan as soon as booking opens speeds up the booking process and means that you may be more successful in securing your preferred tickets for concerts in high demand.

Promming Season Tickets and Weekend Promming Passes are not included in the Proms Planner and will be available to purchase online, by phone and in person from 9.00am on Friday 16 May.

Should you not wish to use the Proms Planner, you can visit www.royalalberthall.com from 9.00am on Saturday 17 May to book your tickets online. Please note that the website will experience very high demand for tickets that day, so you will be placed in a queue. A continuous connection between your computer and the Royal Albert Hall's website is required to maintain your place in the queue. We suggest that you use a computer rather than a mobile device or tablet while queuing.

How to use the Proms Planner:

•  From 2.00pm on Thursday 24 April select ‘Plan Your Proms Tickets’ at bbc.co.uk/proms. (You will be redirected to www.royalalberthall.com).

•  Select ‘Create My Proms Plan’. Then create an account (or log in if you are an existing user) and start choosing the concerts you would like to attend, along with the number of tickets and preferred seating area. You can amend your Proms Plan at any time until midnight on Friday 16 May.

Please note: this is a request system and there is no guarantee that the tickets you select in your Proms Plan will be available once booking has opened.

•  From 9.00am on Saturday 17 May visit www.royalalberthall.com and log in to your Proms Plan in order to submit it. We expect exceptionally high demand, so you will be held in an online waiting room before you are able to log in: you will be informed how many people precede you in the queue (you do not need to refresh the page). You must submit your Proms Plan in order to make a booking.

• Your Proms Plan will now have been updated to reflect live ticket availability and you will be given the chance to cancel tickets or choose alternatives should your selected tickets or seating areas have become unavailable.

•  Confirm your online booking by submitting your Proms Plan and entering your payment details.

•  Your booking will be confirmed by email.

Please note: it is not possible to book entire boxes online. If you would like to book a full box, call the Box Office on 0845 401 5040* from 9.00am on Saturday 17 May.

The ‘Select Your Own Seat’ option is not available via the Proms Planner or during the first few days that Proms tickets are on sale. You will be allocated the best available places within your chosen seating area. This isto allow as many customers as possible to book as efficiently as possible and to speed up the queue during the period of high demand.

TICKETS SOLD OUT? DON'T GIVE UP!

If you are unable to get tickets for a popular Prom, keep trying at bbc.co.uk/proms or the Royal Albert Hall Box Office, as returns often become available. In addition, many boxes and some seats at the Royal Albert Hall are privately owned, and these seats may be returned for general sale in the period leading up to the concert. The Royal Albert Hall does not operate a waiting list.

If you can’t sit, stand

Up to 1,400 Promming (standing) places are available in the Arena and Gallery on the day for every Prom at the Royal Albert Hall. If you arrive early enough on the day of the concert, you have a very good chance of getting in.
