Final tickets for NYE fireworks on sale this Friday

Thu, 30/11/2017

The final round of tickets for London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks go on sale on Friday 1 December at 12pm.

Those wanting to guarantee a view and entry for this year's celebrations will be able to book up to four tickets by visiting the GLA website.

The first round of tickets, which cost £10 each, sold out earlier this month. This year’s display will once again be focused around the London Eye on the River Thames.

More than 3,000 people, from pyrotechnicians to stewards, work together to ensure that the capital’s celebrations run smoothly. The display will feature more than 12,000 fireworks, 2,000 lighting cues and 30 tonnes of equipment on three barges.

While Big Ben’s famous bongs have fallen silent during renovation works this year, the bell will kick-start the fireworks, ringing in the New Year.

Londoners and visitors are reminded to plan early and book tickets in advance. Typically, the final batch of tickets sell out in a matter of hours. 

Those without a ticket will not be able to enter the viewing area. Demand is always high with visitors travelling from around the world to witness the display.

For those without a ticket, the event can be watched live on BBC One. Find out more on the visit London website.
