MEETING:
*** 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)

BOOKING: No booking. There are 500 day tickets available on the day.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
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, has an interval and should finish by 10:20pm.
Queue jumping is discouraged.

    I am sorry, more for me than for you. True and big family crisis so can't possibly come. I am sorry. My yes almost always means yes. Enjoy

    Thanks for organising, but I don't do £5 'no seat' seats at concerts- I'd rather pay more and have a comfortable experience.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
