Marriott Bonvoy has just released tickets for its box at the O2 in London for both dates of Capital Radio’s Jingle Bell Ball on December 11th and 12th.
If you don’t know what this is, you don’t need to know 🙂
Tickets for this event are sold out so redeeming Marriott Bonvoy points is the only way to get in.
Participating acts are:
Saturday 11th December (doors open 4.30pm)
- Justin Bieber
- Years and Years

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.
