How can I get tickets to the Queen's Platinum Jubilee concert?

Sadly, the ballot to attend the concert in person has now closed. 10,000 free tickets were made available in February, as a public ballot opened to the public to enter their names. It closed last week, meaning if you were among those lucky enough to be chosen at random to win, you should have received confirmation by now.
