Last Night tickets information

Owing to high demand, the majority of tickets for the Last Night of the Proms are allocated by ballot.

The Five-Concert Ballot

Customers who purchase tickets for at least five concerts at the Royal Albert Hall are eligible to enter the Five-Concert Ballot.

You must do this before the Five-Concert Ballot closes on Thursday 6 June.

How to enter:

When booking online, tick the Ballot opt-in box – or when booking by phone, in person or by post, inform the Box Office that you wish to enter this ballot.

If you require a wheelchair space for the Last Night of the Proms, you still need to book for five other concerts, but you must phone the Access Information Line on 020 7070 4410 (9.00am–9.00pm daily) by Thursday 6 June and ask to be entered into the separate ballot for wheelchair spaces. This ballot cannot be entered online.

Successful applicants will be informed by Friday 14 June.

Please note:

  • If you are successful in the Five-Concert Ballot, you can apply to buy a maximum of two tickets for the Last Night; you will not be obliged to buy Last Night tickets should your preferred seating area not be available.
  • If you are successful in the Ballot, your Last Night tickets will be issued from Friday 6 September.
  • If you are unsuccessful in the Ballot, we regret that no refunds for other tickets purchased will be payable.

Promming At The Last Night

Whole Season Tickets include admission to the Last Night.

A limited allocation of Last Night tickets is also reserved for Prommers who have attended five or more concerts. They are eligible to purchase one ticket each for the Last Night on presentation of their used tickets. Tickets will be available to buy from the Box Office on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 24 July for First Half Season Ticket-holders and Day Prommers and Weekend Pass-holders with five used tickets
  • Tuesday 20 August for Second Half Season Ticket-holders and Day Prommers and Weekend Pass-holders with five used tickets.
  • Monday 9 September for both First and Second Half Season Ticket-Holders and Day Prommers and Weekend Pass-holders with five used tickets.


On the Night: a limited number of Promming tickets (priced £6) are available on the Last Night itself. No previous ticket purchases are necessary.

Queuing: please note that queuing locations for the Last Night may differ from other Proms, but stewards will be on hand to assist you. Whole Season Pass-holders are guaranteed entrance until 30 minutes before the concert.

Sleeping out: it is not necessary for Prommers with Last Night tickets to camp out overnight to secure their preferred standing place inside the Hall.

Ambulant Disabled Prommers
A limited number of ‘Seat Reservation Tickets’ (SRTs) will be available for the Last Night of the Proms on Friday 13 September.

Customers with Whole Season tickets or pre-purchased tickets may reserve a SRT by phone between 12pm and 3pm and in person after 3pm, subject to availability.

Customers who are hoping to buy a day ticket may request a SRT in person when collecting their queue number. Please note that, like a queue number, a SRT is not a guarantee of entry.

Booking fees

A booking fee of 2% of the total value - plus £2.00 per ticket - applies to all bookings for Last Night tickets.
