*** Please note that entry is not guaranteed, although it's usually easy to get in at the beginning of the season.
The official meeting place is up in the Gallery inside the Royal Albert Hall. Please find me quickly to help reserve a spot. I will have a small meetup badge and sign.
To get into the Gallery you must first join the 'GALLERY DAY TICKET' queue outside the Royal Albert Hall. The Gallery Day ticket queue stretches often with a gap from door 10 westwards down Bremner Rd (avoid season ticket and arena queues!). On arrival, join the back of the queue. Usually the stewards hand out a 'position ticket' to restrict queue jumping and allow you to briefly leave the queue and regain your position if you get back in time. The queue starts moving 50 mins before the start time.
I'd guess your chance of a ticket would be pretty certain if queuing by 6pm dropping to a risky 70% chance if queuing by 7:25pm.
COST: £5 cash only (limit one each) + £2 nominal meetup organisers charge for this event for guests and those who do not hold the Ken's Event Membership Card .
BOOKING: No booking. There are 500 day tickets available on the day.
There's no seating, we stand, sit or lie on the 'Gallery' floor (some bring a mat/towel).
Limited view, most people are content to just stand up occasionally to see what's going on.
Bring food and drink for queuing and if discrete you can usually take inside (no glass). It's a posh venue so refreshments are expensive.
When the music is playing you need to be absolutely quiet.
Large bags to be left in cloakroom (£1 per item).
There is no dress code.
It will be very warm inside.
The Prom starts 7:30pm
Queue jumping is discouraged.
