Media representatives will not be able to view or access any individual artist rehearsals taking place between Saturday 27 April and Saturday 4 May. 

This is to allow all artists to rehearse in private and the production to perfect each performance before it is seen in full when dress rehearsals begin on Monday 8 May. Excerpts from first rehearsals will be shared on TikTok and second rehearsals on the event's official digital platforms. Some participating broadcasters will also share highlights on their digital channels.

Media representatives will be able to go inside the arena during the first Dress Rehearsal of each Live Show on:

Monday 6 May - 15:45
Wednesday 8 May - 15:45  
Friday 10 May - 13:30 

These rehearsals will also be viewable in the Media Centre and the Online Media Centre. Other Dress Rehearsals will have an audience and a valid ticket will be required to enter the arena.

A limited number of agency photographers will be able to access the Live Shows (on Tuesday 7, Thursday 9 and Saturday 11 May) inside the arena by request, but all other accredited media will need to be in possession of a valid ticket to do so.
