Welcome to BBC Shows

As the largest provider of free Television and Radio tickets in the UK, we work on over a thousand shows each year. And we’d love you to be in our audience for one of them. This page shows all our current shows, with filters to find those most relevant to you. New shows are added every day so join our mailing list and follow us on Twitter to hear when tickets for your favourite show become available. 

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.
