Last Night tickets information

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

The One-Concert Ballot

Customers who purchase tickets for at least one concert at the Royal Albert Hall are eligible to enter the One-Concert Ballot.

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 one other concert, but you must phone the Access Information Line on 020 7070 4410 (9.00am–9.00pm daily) and ask to be entered into the separate ballot for wheelchair spaces. This ballot cannot be entered online.

Please note:

  • If you are successful in the One-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 unsuccessful in the Ballot, we regret that no refunds for other tickets purchased will be payable.

The Open Ballot

A proportion of tickets for the Last Night of the Proms at the Royal Albert Hall will be allocated by Open Ballot. No other ticket purchases are necessary. Only one application (for a maximum of two tickets) may be made per household.

Promming At The Last Night

We will release more information about promming at the Last Night of the Proms closer to the time when we have more information about government guidance in September. Whatever happens we plan to make promming tickets available, they will be bookable online only and the booking process and location in the Hall may be a different than usual.

Booking fees

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