As London council taxpayers pay for the London New Year’s Eve Fireworks, why aren’t they guaranteed tickets?

We don’t have room for everyone who’d like to come to the event. That’s why ticketing was introduced – to help manage the very large numbers that come and to keep the event safe.
We’re confident our system is a fair and accessible one. There are lots of opportunities to book tickets for the event on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are available from late September until December. That means Londoners have over two months to book tickets.
