    @The Doctor in Hemsworth

    that is appalling. They should have reserved your seats for you to buy unless your Dad said otherwise. My Dad had to go on by phone and the proms representative told him that he would lose connection on a telephone very quickly. So he stood in a premier Inn car park for 30 mins before he was finally allowed to book tickets. And we got em.

    I think there are talks of a new Doctor Who Live coming later this year… I saw that and it was epic! 🙂

    Hi,

    To L Hughes- that’s great, I wanted second tier more though.

    To Anonymous- Hello, it does not particularly matter where you stay overnight as you can just take the Tube to a hotel. However, people start queuing for a standing space rather early. I think there’s only a few terminals though, so the wait would be rather long. You might have to be in the area, and be at the terminal once their blinds open! 🙂

    people start queuing several hours before the event, not sure about the bags

    Ok. I’m American and have basically no clue how the proms work. I just happen to be in London on that date. How early should I queue? Should I queue for the arena or the pit? I’m assuming since we’re waiting for hours we’re allowed to have bags with us.

  • booboo

    yes we are the same, 3 of us going but we have 3 boxes in a row so we will only be split up concert, better than not going at all

    That’s great booboo! I’m in the second tier! Saturday 13th July! Hooray!

    we actually managed to get some single seats in the back of boxes so we are going to – albeit not together

    I have tickets!!!! I’m going to the Prom!!! Well done to my dad! 🙂

    Oh also, you can’t get into the centre stalls from the arena. The arena is an enclosed space. But you do have the chance, if you’re near the front of the queue, to be within a few metres of the stage!

    I queued for arena tickets on the day, from about 9/10 in the morning (one or two people camped out overnight!). The queue started building up pretty steadily after I got there. I think it’ll be even busier at it’s the big 50th anniversary Doctor Who prom – so I definitely wouldn’t leave it to a few hours before the event!

    (I’m doing it this year again, wouldn’t miss it for the world)

    I went back in 2010 and my brother Was picked out from Matt Smith to go help him stop the bomb!! If anyone remembers

    I am not joking I am telling the truth!!

    That isn’t The Proms, it will be buyers who buy tickets to re-sell them!

    If you got their early enough in the queue a couple of hours before it started. It depends how busy it will be.

  • MasterKasterborous

    May 11th, 2013 - 11:59pm

    Why?
