It’s Friday night, and you know what that means – time to tune into the BBC for The Graham Norton Show.
The iconic Irish presenter regularly chats it up with the who’s who of Hollywood, the best British actors, and the country’s most beloved comedians – topping it all off with a musical guest.
Even better than watching it on the telly would surely be watching the magic happen in real life.
While tapings don’t actually take place on Fridays, they usually happen just beforehand, on a Wednesday or Thursday.
And laughing along to the candid interviews being filmed are the audience, which is filled with lucky members of the general public.
And hey, did you know one of them could be you? Here’s how to apply.
How to get tickets to be in The Graham Norton Show audience
To try your chances at getting to sit in Graham’s audience, visit SRO Audiences and fill out a short form.
You’ll be asked to include your name and title, age, your preferred dates, how many tickets you want (with a maximum of four), plus your postal address and contact phone numbers.
Make sure to mention your profession, too – and add your funniest story for the big red chair, if you’ve got one.
As The Graham Norton Show is quite the hot ticket, there are a limited number of tickets available. Therefore, SRO Audience says on its website that entrants are randomly selected.
If you’ve had no luck the first time round, you may find you get given tickets at a later date if someone cancels, and you may also be popped on a waiting list. Exciting!
The show tapes at the BBC Television Centre in West London, and you’ll need to be there by 6.15pm on your chosen day.
Due to the pandemic, if you’re successful in landing tickets, you’ll also need to prove a negative Covid-19 test result.
These tests needs to be either a UK government-approved home testing kit, or from an approved private provider, with your negative result proven by official confirmation or a certificate.
These need to be taken 24 hours before you’ll be sitting in the audience, too.
The Graham Norton Show airs on Fridays at 10.35pm on BBC One.Credit: Source
