The BBC has revealed details for a national ballot where 5000 members of the public will be selected to receive a pair of free tickets to be in the audience in front of Buckingham Palace for a once-in-a-lifetime concert celebrating The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on Saturday the 4th of June.
From Thursday, 24th February at 0700hrs, people are invited to apply by visiting www.bbc.co.uk/platinumjubileeconcert anytime until 2359hrs on Wednesday, 23rd of March. The 10,000 tickets are not being allocated on a first-come first-served basis, so there is as much chance of being selected if an application is made on the 24th February as on the 23rd March.
Broadcast live on BBC One, BBC iPlayer and BBC Radio 2, and supported across the entire BBC network, the Platinum Party at the Palace will bring together the world’s biggest entertainers, all performing in celebration of Her Majesty The Queen becoming the first British monarch to reign for seventy years.
With state-of-the-art technology and a stunning stage design in front of this iconic Royal Residence, the event will feature an incredible range of musical highlights from global pop stars to rock royalty to opera singers with a full, live orchestra. Stars from film, TV and the stage will also tell the story and celebrate some of the most significant cultural moments from The Queen’s reign.
The remaining tickets will be made available to charitable organisations including those who work in support of young people, the military, the environment and those who supported communities during the pandemic.
Charlotte Moore, BBC Chief Content Officer, says: “The Platinum Party at the Palace is set to be one of the highlights of Her Majesty The Queen’s landmark Jubilee festivities weekend and one of the biggest concerts in a generation. The BBC is honoured to be bringing every moment of this live event to millions watching and listening at home, and on outdoor screens across the UK and around the world.”
