PLEASE DON’T RISK BUYING TICKETS THROUGH UNOFFICIAL CHANNELS.
We understand your frustration that some people are placing adverts on secondary ticketing websites. We do not agree with people selling tickets on for profit, however legally there is nothing we can do to prevent this happening. The BBC reserves the right to ask ticket holders for their identification linked to the purchase of the original ticket upon entry to the event.
We strongly recommend the public do not risk buying tickets that are being resold as we cannot guarantee whether they are genuine or if they are tickets that have previously been cancelled. Those offering free or paid tickets for sale are breaking the Terms & Conditions they agreed to during the booking process and, if discovered, we reserve the right to cancel their tickets.
