Get tickets for filming of Jools Holland's TV show

Anyone ever been on Later with Jools Holland or the Hootenanny? How did you get tickets?

Everyone loves the BBC2 music show, always been a fan, it looks very civilised too! See loads of great musicians and you don't need to dance like a tool or be 12 (TOTP)

In particular, next new year's eve, I want to go to the Hootenanny. I imagine tickets are like gold dust, how did you manage to get a ticket to the normal filming

This page gives contact details for the BBC ticket office. If they can't get you the tickets they can probably tell you where you can get them from.

My friend got in to Later by asking people in the queue if they had any spare tickets. To get tickets for real, there's a special address to write to on a certain date that's only given out in an obscure magazine ad somewhere (I've seen one in Time Out).

(And I hope you realize the Hootenanny is pre-recorded)

Best answer: I was in the audience for "Later" once. I called up the BBC's ticket office and asked for tickets - they told me there was a year long waiting list. I asked to be put on it anyway, and sure enough just over a year later I got 4 tickets in the mail. Well worth the wait!
