As not everyone who registers for tickets uses them and to make sure we have a full house, we send out more tickets than there are places. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. We can't guarantee that you'll get in, and also please be aware that on some BBC shows, audience members start queuing well before doors open. Paid tickets will not be over allocated and admission is guaranteed with a valid ticket and proof of ID if required.

Tickets cannot be re-sold and if you buy tickets from anyone they will not be valid and entry to the event with such a ticket will be refused.
