Tickets are now available for concerts between July 30 and August 19. The second booking period opens on July 24 for concerts between August 20 and September 10, 2021.

If any restrictions are lifted during this time, more tickets will become available at its venue, the Royal Albert Hall.

This year’s Proms include performances by violinist Joshua Bell leading the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason playing Dvořak’s Cello Concerto, and violinist Nicola Benedetti performing Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2.

Each Prom will broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 and BBC Sounds with 20 Proms on TV and iPlayer. "We are thrilled to be able to celebrate the return of the Proms to its live format at the Royal Albert Hall, with TV broadcasts of music performances of the highest standard directly to our audience’s homes," said Jan Younghusband, Head of Commissioning at BBC Music Television.

The popular tradition of "Promming" or standing in the Arena or Gallery areas of the Royal Albert Hall, is a core part of the unique and informal atmosphere of the BBC Proms.

"It is also one of the most difficult things to manage at this time," the Proms website reads. "We therefore ask you to come back to this page closer to the season for confirmation of whether Prommers will be able to stand. Should Promming not be possible, seated tickets honouring the ethos of Promming (accessibly priced and available on the day) will be purchasable, although these may not be located in the Arena or Gallery."
