The Red Nose Day Show is broadcast live from Elstree Studios in Borehamwood, Herts. Please note that tickets are standing only and a maximum of two can be requested per person. Not everyone who applies will receive a ticket and possessing a ticket does not guarantee entry into the studio: entry is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please check that you have applied for the correct section of the show as tickets cannot be exchanged later. 

Red Nose Day was launched in 1988 and has become something of a British institution. It’s the day, every two years, when people across the land can get together and raise money at home, school and work and have a laugh doing it! There’s also a fantastic night of TV on the BBC, with comedy and entertainment to inspire the nation to give generously. Comic Relief spends the money raised by Red Nose Day and sister event Sport Relief to help people living tough lives across the UK and internationally.

David Tennant has had a long association with Comic Relief and co-hosted the Red Nose Day show in 2009 with Davina McCall. Watch a clip here:
