Ballot opens for chance to get a ringside seat for Diamond Jubilee celebrations
A public ballot opens today for UK residents to apply for a seat facing Buckingham Palace to watch the Diamond Jubilee celebrations on Tuesday 5 June.
Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt said:
"This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity and one that will be remembered for generations to come. It's completely right these seats are allocated in a fair way to the general public and that they are free of charge. To have a ringside seat on such a historic day is an experience not to be missed."
