How to get tickets for King Charles III’s coronation concert

Members of the public can take part in the national vote to secure tickets when it opens at 7am on Friday 10 February.

The Coronation Concert will take place on Sunday 7th May at Windsor Castle.

You are invited to apply for tickets via the BBC website and voting closes just before midnight on February 28th.

Winners will be allocated based on the geographic spread of the UK population rather than on a first come, first served basis, with 5,000 people each receiving a pair of tickets in voting conducted by Ticketmaster.

The Ticketmaster website link will only go live when voting begins.

Winning ticket holders will be selected after February 28th.

The concert will take place outdoors and is expected to start late in the evening and last around 2-3 hours.

Entering the arena with parasols, folding chairs or large flags is not permitted.

The standing area is uncovered and open to the elements, so concertgoers are advised to bring a waterproof coat in case it rains.

Although there is no dress code as such, a list of frequently asked questions on the BBC website urges guests to “please avoid wearing clothing with big slogans and offensive language”.

Revelers cannot take away alcohol or food, but they can purchase food and drink inside.

You are allowed to bring an empty water bottle to fill up at the water fountains.

Charlotte Moore, BBC Chief Content Officer, said: “The BBC’s Coronation Concert will bring the nation together to celebrate this momentous occasion and we are delighted to offer the public the opportunity to be part of the event at Windsor Castle a national election and the provision of exclusive television and radio coverage.”

What to expect from the coronation concert

One of the highlights will be ‘Lighting up the Nation’, which will illuminate iconic locations across the UK with projections, lasers, drone displays and illuminations.

Stars of stage and screen will deliver a selection of spoken word sequences and a world-class orchestra will play renditions of musical favorites led by famous entertainers.

The Coronation Choir will also perform.

This choir is a diverse group drawn from the country’s most zealous community choirs and amateur singers from across the UK, including refugee choirs, NHS choirs, LGBTQ+ singing groups and deaf signing choirs.

The Coronation Choir will perform this evening along with the Virtual Choir, made up of singers from across the Commonwealth, for a special performance.

Volunteers from the King’s and Queen’s Consort Charities will also be in the audience.

The remaining tickets will be made available to charities that support young people, the military, the environment, their local communities and the broader Commonwealth. BBC is giving out 10,000 free tickets to Charles’ coronation concert
