Film Awards Red Carpet Access

 Find out how to watch the guests arrive on the red carpet at the EE British Academy Film Awards, Sunday 8 February 2015.

  • There will be no access to the public viewing area without a wristband.
  • BAFTA are operating a slightly different wristband system for 2015 - Wristbands will be issued at 15:00 on Saturday 7 February by security on a first come first serve basis. 
  • The wristbands are numbered and will be placed on the spectator’s wrist immediately and will not be transferable. The number will dictate your position in the crowd pens on Sunday 8 Feb so there is no need to queue until the pens are loaded at approximately 13:00 on Sunday 8 February.
  •  Wristbands will be issued from colonnades of the Theatre Royal on Russell Street (see attached map)
  • No lists of any kind will be honoured and security will only allow access to the red carpet viewing areas based on the numbered wristband.
  • Should your wristband become lost or damaged, there will be no automatic right of re-admission during the event 
  • BAFTA security will give instructions on the day to help you safely into the viewing areas. They will be dressed in high visibility jackets therefore easy to identify. Please listen to their instructions
  •  BAFTA does not have permission for spectators to queue under the colonnades at any time and does not encourage it, public who wait here do so at their own risk and may be moved on by Theatre Royal staff. 
  • We request that you do not block any doorways from the Theatre Royal, they need to be accessible at all times.
  • Any public who are found to be blocking doorways or the public footpath or restricting public or vehicle access in any way will not be issued a wristband and will be asked to move. 
  • Tents will not be permitted under the colonnades as they restrict access along the public footpath.
  •  For disabled access please contact Luke Crosby at LukeC@bafta.org
  •  There will be random bag searches of all public in the viewing areas in operation so we advise you to bring as little baggage as possible.
  •   Please take all your rubbish with you and keep the area clean.
  •  Please remember that BAFTA cannot guarantee the weather – please dress appropriately.
  • The organisers reserve the right to refuse admission to, remove or exclude any person who’s behaviour gives rise to concerns regarding the health and safety of the public, security, staff or themselves.
  • Where someone is found to be in possession of an item that gives rise to health and safety concerns as above, they will be refused admission, removed and be reported to the police.
