Audience Admission to BBC Shows - Photo ID

Please note that audiences attending shows at all venues must bring photo ID. Please take a look at our FAQ to see what type of photo ID is acceptable.

Please also be aware that the BBC is currently reviewing the security of its buildings and is suspending all public access to New Broadcasting House during this review period. As a result of this, audiences will not be admitted on site until the validating time as stated on tickets, and only via the Portland Place entrance.
