Tickets For Troops is a brand new and independent charity dedicated to offering free tickets for big events to our soldiers, sailors and airmen.
This is a win-win arrangement: brave and deserving troops get to see shows, concerts, fights and games: and we in the world of entertainment and sport get a chance to show them that we think they are the best of the best, and support them with all our hearts. Fabulous!! xxx - Joanna Lumley, Patron
Our scheme sees free tickets for a multitude of sporting and entertainment events handed out to soldiers who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
All serving military personnel and any veterans who have been medically discharged through injury since 2001 qualify for tickets.
The scheme has attracted a lot of support and there are a variety of events available.
For details of the tickets available, how to get hold of them and of all the people behind the scheme please use the links below.
