Festival of Remembrance: new procedure to buy tickets

Only if your are a member of the Royal British Legion you can buy tickets (maximum two tickets per member). 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. 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 (UK-time) on Monday 23 July. Members can buy tickets online at https://festivalofremembrance.seetickets.com or by phone 020 7087 7929. The website currently redirects back to the Festival page, and on the phone ticket agents won’t take bookings until 23rd July. You cannot buy tickets directly from the Royal British Legion! 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.

Alleen als je lid bent van de Royal British Legion kun je kaartjes (maximaal twee kaartjes per lid) kopen. Wegens de nieuwe Privacywet is de procedure voor het kopen van kaartjes bekeken en veranderd. De kaartverkoop vindt plaats op basis van wie het eerst komt, het eerst maalt. Mede daarom is een maximum van twee kaartjes per lid bepaald. De kaartverkoop voor zowel de middag- als de avondvoorstelling start op maandag 23 juli om 9.00 uur (Engelse tijd). Kaartjes kunnen alleen nog gekocht online of telefonisch gekocht worden via: https://festivalofremembrance.seetickets.com / 0044 20 7087 7929. Het is niet mogelijk om kaartjes rechtstreeks bij the Royal British Legion te kopen. Eventuele onverkochte/overgebleven kaartjes gaan begin oktober in de verkoop onder alle burgers. Tegen die tijd wordt meer informatie bekend gemaakt via de website van de Royal British Legion.

The Darkest Hour preview A thrilling and inspiring true story begins at the precipice of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fi...ght for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a sceptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.
