Details of this year's New Year's Eve fireworks in central London have been announced, with the second and final batch of tickets on sale from 12pm today (Friday 1 December).
The annual shindig returns in its usual form on 31 December 2023, allowing revellers to see in 2024 with a bang, on the banks of the Thames.
As in recent years, the event will be ticketed this year, with 100,000 available. The first batch went on sale — and sold out — on Friday 3 November. They're priced at £20 each — an increase on last year's £15 price tag — with all of the money used to pay for the event. A maximum of four tickets can be bought in a single transaction and they'll be on sale on the Mayor of London's website. You can sign up now to get an email reminder when they go live.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said:
Celebrating the new year in the heart of our capital while watching our spectacular fireworks display on the banks of the River Thames is the best ticket in town. Millions around the world will see our capital's skyline illuminated by an extraordinary celebration of fireworks that will show London is for everyone.
The event will also be televised live on BBC One, for anyone who doesn't get tickets/prefers to see in the new year in the comfort of their own home.
