BBC now has two classes of Proms queuesmain
From a letter to the Guardian:
For over 100 years you could queue up for the arena or the gallery at the Albert Hall, taking your chances to see great music at a budget price; one of the best cultural deals in London, if not the world. Now those who go online can “pre-book” for a “small fee” and go into a guaranteed access queue, leaving ordinary Promenaders to take their chances for the leftovers in a second queue.
And they have raised the price from £5 to £6.
