Queen’s 90th birthday celebration sells out just hours after going on sale to the public
The Ticket Factory has sold-out of tickets for the Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration due to take place next May.
The leading ticketing agency sold more than 7,000 tickets within the first hour and also reported peak sales of over 400 tickets a minute after it went on sale at 9am this morning.
The Ticket Factory’s Contact Centre, which is based at Birmingham’s NEC, reported receiving calls from more than 2000 people hoping to buy tickets.
The celebration, which takes place in Home Park Private, Windsor Castle between Thursday 12th and Sunday 15th May, will see thousands of people come together to celebrate this historic occasion.
Stuart Cain, Managing Director of The Ticket Factory, said: “We’ve had an overwhelming response from the public for tickets to celebrate The Queen’s 90th Birthday and we aren’t surprised at how quickly they have sold out.
“It’s such a once in a lifetime experience for people to be a part of and it was especially great to see The Queen visit Birmingham last week, which I am sure has stirred people’s interest locally in being a part of the celebrations next year.
“The volume of enquires and tickets sales was handled perfectly by our technology and we are pleased to have been able to deliver a smooth speed of sale for our clients.”
General Entry and Members tickets for Royal Windsor Horse Show are still available to purchase via www.theticketfactory.co.uk . This event takes place in the same location as The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration during the day and some of the equestrian and military displays included in the evening Celebration event will also be performing at Royal Windsor Horse Show.
