Tickets for the LIVE 8 London concert in Hyde Park will be allocated via a text competition.
For the chance to win a pair of tickets to the London event you will need to enter the text competition - you can enter as many times as you like - there are 72,500 pairs of tickets to be won. Details of the text number and competition will be announced on the 6th June - via all UK r adio s tations & BBC Television. No entries will be accepted before 00:01 on the 6th June.
Each entry costs £1.50* plus your operator's standard text charge. The competition will close at midnight on the 12th June and winners will be chosen at random by computer and notified by text message after the 13th June with details of how they can collect their tickets - either online or from collection points around the UK.
Due to the tight deadlines we are working to, you will need to be able to collect your tickets within ten days of notification of winning, otherwise you will forfeit them.
* Ask bill payer's permission before texting. The first £1.6 million raised from the text competition will go to The Prince's Trust which is sharing a proportion of the income with Help a London Child. The rest will go to pay for the costs of LIVE 8, as it is a free event. Help a London Child is an appeal run by Capital Charities, Registered Charity Number 1091657.
The Prince's Trust, Registered Charity Number 1079675.
Other venues do not require tickets – details on how to attend will follow shortly.
