The first batch of tickets for the spectacular London New Year’s Eve fireworks will be available from midday on Friday 29 September.
This year’s stunning spectacle will once again be focused around the Coca-Cola 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 and are the most dazzling on the planet. The renowned pyrotechnic and lighting 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 vital renovation works this year, the unmistakeable bell will sound to kickstart the fireworks, ringing in the New Year in true London style.
As well as being enjoyed by more than 100,000 spectators in the viewing areas, the display is watched by over 12 million broadcast viewers on TV, promoting London as global capital of tourism and culture.
For those without a ticket, the event can be watched on BBC One and there are also hundreds of other opportunities to bring in 2018 in style at bars, restaurants, pubs and clubs across the capital.
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 29 September by visiting www.london.gov.uk/nye. Each ticket is priced £10
