The Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance will be held in the Royal Albert Hall, London on Saturday 10 November 2018 with performances at 2.00pm and 7.00pm.

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 will be able to buy tickets on a first-come-first served basis, in an exclusive Member sale, buying tickets directly from the ticket agent.

There is also a new pricing structure for the purchase of tickets, which now allows members to select their own seating and pay accordingly, meaning a fairer allocation of seating within the Royal Albert Hall. There will be no additional booking fees for Members and administrative costs for the process will be covered by the Legion.

We believe that this new system means fairer distribution and fairer pricing along with an equal opportunity for all Members to secure a ticket. It will also ensure that Members’ personal data is secure.

The ticketing information and application procedure is outlined below. Exact details of ticket booking phone number and website will be released in the Legion Magazine, e-Newsletter and Yammer in July. This will also be sent via email to MSOs.

Requirements

In addition to the implementation of GDPR, the Metropolitan Police have asked for the following information for every person who will attend the Festival of Remembrance, both afternoon and evening performances:

o Full Name (this must be exactly as it appears on your photo ID)

o Address (please include post code)

o Date of Birth (please use the format DD/MM/YYYY)

o Email address

o Contact number

This information must be allocated to their seat number and all tickets must be individually named.

The ticket agent has agreed to gather all of the aforementioned data on behalf of the Legion and will be GDPR compliant. The ticket seller will share the data with TRBL and Met Police only. All data will be deleted within one month after the event.

Tickets will go on sale to members from 9am on the 23rd July and may be obtained via the following methods:
