Which countries have bought the most tickets so far?
We started ticketing London New Year's Eve Fireworks in 2014 as crowd numbers had grown hugely over the years. It was decided that ticketing was the best way to manage the crowd size in future and keep the event safe.
A review of the first two years of ticketing shows that it’s been a great success. It’s stopped overcrowding in central London. It's also meant that everyone with a ticket has been able to see the display.
