What is Promming?

The popular tradition of Promming (standing in the Arena or Gallery areas of the Royal Albert Hall) is central to the unique and informal atmosphere of the BBC Proms. It is also one of the most difficult things to manage at this time. We therefore ask you to come back to this page closer to the season for confirmation of whether Prommers will be able to stand. Should Promming not be possible, seated tickets honouring the ethos of Promming (accessibly priced and available on the day) will be purchasable, although these may not be located in the Arena or Gallery.

When the Proms season comes, life changes; a kind of light comes into your diary

Promming tickets are £7.12 (including £1.12 booking fee) and are available to buy, online only, on the day of the concert.
