BT is to mark the 50th anniversary of its iconic London tower by opening up the restaurant to the UK public this summer.
The re-opening, which will last for two weeks, will give 14,000 members of the public the chance to enjoy a dining experience in the famous revolving restaurant on the 34th floor of the BT Tower, which offers panoramic views of London.
Places at the event will be subject to a ballot, with anyone aged 18 or over eligible to enter.
Successful applicants will be able to bring three extra guests and can choose either a champagne four-course lunch or seven-course dinner, at a cost of £49.95 and £67.95 per head respectively, with all profits being donated to ChildLine.
The restaurant will be open to ballot winners between Saturday July 25th and Friday August 7th, excluding Mondays, with one sitting for lunch and dinner each day.
Gavin Patterson, BT Group Chief Executive, said: “I’m delighted we’re able to reopen the restaurant to the public. The BT Tower was a unique feat of engineering when it was first built and it remains an important and much loved building today.
"It has been a working icon of technological innovation for fifty years and what better way to celebrate that than by opening it to the public. The ballot winners are in for a treat as they will be able to see London in all its glory."
The first ballot, for week one, will open at 9am on Monday, June 22nd, closing at 9am on Monday, June 29th.
A second ballot, for the following week, will then begin at 9am on Tuesday, June 30th and close at 9am on Tuesday, July 7th.
