Tickets go on sale next week

The first batch of tickets for London’s New Year’s Eve firework display go on sale next week.

At midday on Friday, September 29, tickets will go on sale for the event, which will be kicked-off with the sound of Big Ben ringing, despite renovation works silencing the bell for most of the next four years.

The capital’s iconic firework display is put together by more than 3,000 people from pyrotechnicians to stewards, with more than 12,000 fireworks, 2,000 lighting cues and 30 tonnes of equipment set to be used this year.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “London is the greatest city in the world and our amazing fireworks display on the banks of the River Thames cannot be beaten. Visitors will witness an extraordinary display, showing that London is open for business, outward looking and open to all people from across the world.

“My number-one priority is the safety of all Londoners and, as always, the police and emergency services will be working closely with organisers to ensure the evening’s festivities run smoothly and are safe for everyone to enjoy.

Those wanting to guarantee a view and entry for this year’s celebrations will be able to book up to four tickets from midday on Friday September 29 by visiting www.london.gov.uk/nye. Each ticket costs £10.
