What things do I need to remember on the night?

  • Bring your ticket with you (email confirmations won’t be accepted). All tickets are barcoded and personalised to you. Tickets will be scanned on entry. The person named on the ticket(s) must be present and may be asked to show photo ID as proof 
  • Expect very large crowds 
  • Bring only a small bag for essential items or preferably NO bag at all.  We will be operating a bag restriction policy.  This means no backpacks or suitcases will be allowed into the event this year. Please remember this to avoid being turned away at the entrance.
  • Plan your journey to and from the fireworks. Remember you may need to take a different route home from the way you arrived. Allow plenty of time for your journey back and consider walking some of it. There’ll be long queues to get to nearby stations and special walking routes in place. 
  • If you’re meeting up with other members of your group beforehand, choose quieter locations away from the entry gates 
  • Report anything suspicious to police, stewards or Transport for London staff 
  • Take care of your valuables, large crowds attract pickpockets 
  • Drink plenty of water and go easy on the alcohol 
  • Dress for the weather 
  • Be prepared to stand for long periods of time 
  • Notify the nearest steward if you need medical help – they will direct you to one of the event’s first aid points. Event paramedics will be the quickest to respond. Call 999 only in the case of a serious emergency.
