It’s that time of year…


Yes, the hunt for the most in-demand tickets in town has kicked off, as applications to be part of The Late Late Toy Show audience are now open.

Last year there were more than 100,000 applications to be in the audience – and you can bet the demand will be the exact same this year. According to statistics released by RTE, last year’s The Greatest Showman themed Late Late Toy Show was watched by an estimated audience of 1.2 million people.

This year’s Late Late Toy Show airs on RTÉ One on Friday, November 29th, and the theme continues to be a closely guarded secret.

How can I apply for tickets?

Important to note is that applications for Toy Show tickets are processed separately to applications for tickets to the regular Late Late and each year the application process starts afresh.

So, even if you have applied for Toy Show tickets before or are already in the running for seats at the main show, to be in with a chance to get tickets to this year’s Toy Show, you must apply separately by going to https://www.rte.ie/latelate.

Only applications made through this website will be entered into the draw.

How are ticket-holders selected?

Tickets are issued in a random lottery and those lucky enough to secure a seat will be notified closer to broadcast.

“It is that time of year when I find myself being asked more than normal “any chance of a ticket for Toy Show?” The appetite for Toy Show tickets never fails to astonish me and it seems to be growing every year. We have something truly special planned for this year’s show and the only way to be in with a chance of getting a ticket is to apply now.”

Go to: https://www.rte.ie/latelate and apply for those golden tickets now!
