BBC Proms say they will pack the Albert HallNews
But masks are ‘encouraged’ and Covid certificates will be checked.
Here’s the statement:
The BBC Proms will open at full capacity with additional tickets for the first half of the Proms going on sale at midday on Friday, 23 July, and tickets for the second half of the season going on sale at 9am on Saturday, 24 July.
Promming tickets will be available on the day of each concert priced at just £6 (plus booking fee). There will be standing tickets available in the Arena and Gallery with additional seated Promming tickets in the Choir.
The safety of our audiences is our main priority and we are taking every step we can to open the Proms safely without social distancing.
To do this, audiences will be strongly encouraged to wear masks for the duration of their visit and their Covid Status Certification will be checked on arrival at the Royal Albert Hall.
In order to enter the Royal Albert Hall, those over 18 years old, will be required to demonstrate one of the following:
evidence of a negative lateral flow test, either taken at home or at a test centre, within 48 hours of the performance
evidence of double vaccination provided via the NHS App or letter provided by the NHS
proof of natural immunity based upon a positive PCR test taken within 180 days of the performance
Those under the age of 18 should have verbal confirmation from a parent or guardian that they have not received a positive test.
