Don’t panic but the Late Late Toy Show is finally looking for its audience

It’s probably the biggest show of the year.

Audience tickets for the Late Late Toy show have opened their application doors.

Last year over 100,000 people applied for a place in the studio and although the tickets are allocated on a lottery basis, this year it might as well be you.

The show is notorious for lavishing free prizes and festive gifts on its audience and generally getting the country into Christmas spirits. Whether that’s through Toy Show drinking games or the musically gifted tiny people.

You can apply for your golden tickets on the RTÉ website here.

But if you’re already getting nervously excited for the technological glitches, sweaty sweaters and mental moments here’s a little reminder of 2015’s  craic;
