London Fireworks

It’s been announced that the first batch of tickets for the London New Year’s Eve fireworks will be available from midday on Friday 29th September.

This year’s spectacle will once again be focused around the Coca-Cola London Eye on the River Thames. More than 3,000 people, from pyro technicians to stewards, work together to ensure that the capital’s celebrations run smoothly and are the ‘most dazzling on the planet’.

The pyrotechnic and lighting display will feature more than 12,000 fireworks, 2,000 lighting cues and 30 tonnes of equipment on three barges.

While Big Ben’s famous ‘bongs’ have fallen silent during vital renovation works this year, the unmistakeable bell will sound to kick-start the fireworks, ringing in the New Year.

As well as being enjoyed by more than 100,000 spectators in the viewing areas, the display is watched by over 12 million broadcast viewers on TV, promoting London as a ‘global capital of tourism and culture’.

Those wanting to guarantee a view and entry for this year’s celebrations will be able to book tickets from midday on 29th September by visiting Each ticket is priced £10 – the same price as 2014, when ticketing was first introduced – with all profits used to pay for the costs associated with the ticketing scheme.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “London is the greatest city in the world and our amazing fireworks display on the banks of the River Thames cannot be beaten. Visitors will witness an extraordinary display, showing that London is open for business, outward looking and open to all people from across the world.

“Whether you’re joining the thousands of revellers by the Thames, or watching the display from the comfort of your own home – I hope you enjoy the spectacular show.”
