The Royal British Legion's annual Festival of Remembrance, presented by Huw Edwards, takes place at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday 10 November 2018, the day before Remembrance Sunday. The Festival commemorates all those who have lost their lives in conflicts.

100 years ago the First World War ended, and a new world began. The example and experience of those who lived through it shaped the world we live in today. At the Festival of Remembrance this year, in the presence of The Royal Family, The Royal British Legion is leading the nation in saying Thank You to all who served, sacrificed and changed our world.

Tickets

Recent changes in Data Protection laws and increased security measures have meant a review of the process for obtaining tickets to attend the Festival of Remembrance was necessary. This is timely, because it has given us an opportunity to act on feedback from the Membership by changing to a fairer and more straightforward system of obtaining tickets.  Under the new system, Members of the Royal British Legion can buy tickets on a first-come, first served basis, limited to two per member. Tickets for both the afternoon and evening performances go on sale at 9am on Monday 23 July. 

Members can buy tickets online at https://festivalofremembrance.seetickets.com or by phone 020 7087 7929. Both will be open for sales at 9am, 23rd July.

Any unsold tickets will go on sale to the general public at the beginning of October. Details will be released on the Royal British Legion website at that time.
