If you don’t have a child aged 10-16 then most of what I am about to write won’t make any sense to you. Feel free to move on!

What do Jingle Bell Ball tickets cost?

You need 75,000 Marriott Bonvoy points for TWO tickets.

At the time of writing (10.30am Wednesday) there are five pairs remaining for Saturday and four pairs remaining for Sunday.

The Marriott Bonvoy Suite at the O2 is impressive. Assuming the usual pre-covid set-up returns, there is a free hot buffet served before the concert and a free bar all night. I have been multiple times, and here is a review by Anika of how the Marriott Bonvoy suite works.

A picture of the suite is above. The only caveat is that it is a long way from the stage, so if you want to be close to the action – hard at the O2 – it isn’t the place for you. It’s better for casual fans who appreciate the ability to wander in and out of the suite at will during the evening.

You can buy via this page of the Marriott Moments website.

  • Jody says:

    Love that you think only kids age 10-16 would be interested in this! I’d happily go on either day, but then I’m mid 40s and still listen to radio 1, so I’m maybe unusual?

    No Marriott points though, so no chance for me!

    • Save East Coast Rewards says:

      Although it’s not something I’d be particularly interested in I also struggled to see what made this event specifically for the 10-16 demographic. So does anyone that’s been know if it’s targeted at kids or is it popular with adults too?

      • Chas says:

        I’ve been to the Capital’s Summertime Ball once, about 4 or 5 years ago. Similar concept except held at Wembley Stadium in the warmer months of the year. Plenty of adults there, and not just those that were accompanying their kids, but I guess the general vibe both in terms of the acts and the introductions between sets is more aimed at a younger audience. But you wouldn’t feel out of place if the acts appealed to you and you went without kids. Probably even less out of place in the suite, away from the screaming masses!

  • Simon says:

    are amex to marriot transfers instant?!

  • Yorkieflyer says:

    B***er, me and the missus at Peppa Pig World that weekend

    • Mike says:

      Oh thank goodness for you comma !

      • Mr(s) Entitled says:

        The absence of the comma may have explained why Boris was so excited to attend. It would have been a dream for Cameron!

  • Chas says:

    I nearly messaged Mrs Chas to see if she thought we should be nice parents and take our 2 teenagers who have already asked several times if we could get tickets. Then I realised that it equates to £187 per ticket at 0.5p per point. I think I’d rather save my points for some decent redemptions in the sun. Bah Humbug….!

  • Paul says:

    nice one, just redeemed 4 tix

  • The cyclist says:

    Never heard of any of them apart from Sheeran and Bieber who are both a bit naff and Coldplay who are decent.
