The final tickets to see the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan’s spectacular New Year’s Eve fireworks celebrations on the banks of the River Thames will go on sale next Friday.

Just over 20,000 tickets will go on sale at noon on Friday 1 December as Londoners and visitors are given the last chance to secure a ticket.

In total, more than 100,000 ticketholders will gather opposite the lastminute.com London Eye to ring in the new year in front of a dazzling display of colour and sound, against the backdrop of London’s iconic skyline.

Only ticket holders will be able to watch the fireworks in person, while a television audience across the globe will watch the celebrations and hear the traditional sounds of Big Ben’s chimes marking the start of the new year.

Tickets must be bought in advance from the only authorised outlet, AXS. Tickets purchased anywhere else will not be valid. Official tickets cost £20 each – with every penny used to pay for the costs associated with delivering the event. There will also be an opportunity to donate to TAP London, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of homeless Londoners. The final batch of tickets are expected to sell out quickly.

Those without a ticket are encouraged to watch the display live on BBC One or via BBC iPlayer alongside millions of viewers or to celebrate the new year at the capital’s fantastic range of bars, restaurants, pubs and clubs.

City Hall is working with a wide range of partner agencies including the Met Police, TfL, local authorities and the emergency services to safely deliver the event.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “There is no better place to ring in the New Year than on the banks of the Thames watching our world-famous fireworks. Millions across the globe will be watching as our capital’s skyline is illuminated with our spectacular celebration. The first batch of tickets sold out completely, so this is the last chance to secure a place. It’s one of the biggest nights of the year for our city but those without a ticket can still enjoy our capital’s fantastic hospitality as we build a better London for everyone.”

Imran Tauqir, General Manager at the lastminute.com London Eye, said: “The Mayor of London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks are globally renowned, showcasing our capital city to millions of people around the world.

“We are delighted and honoured that the lastminute.com London Eye is once again at the centre of what will be an amazing and dazzling display of vibrant colours and synchronised sound.

“As a long-established feature of the capital’s famous skyline, we’ve been part of these famous celebrations since the Eye’s inception for the millennium.

“We look forward to welcoming in 2024 with those joining us here in London and all those watching on TV at home with their friends and family.”
