A hundred tickets for the Paralympic Heritage Flame Lighting Ceremony, which forms part of the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Paralympic Games Torch Relay in South Korea, have now been released for the general public.
The Ceremony is due to take place at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, birthplace of the Paralympic Movement, in English town Aylesbury on March 2.
It is claimed the Organising Committee, including the British Paralympic Association, the International Paralympic Committee, Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC), Leap and WheelPower, is currently hard at work ensuring that the event sparks the flame of not only the Paralympic Torch, but igniting the "spirit of endeavour" of all potential future Paralympians.
The Paralympic Heritage Flame will be sent "virtually" to South Korea, where it will start an eight-day Relay and eventually light the Cauldron in Seoul on March 9 to officially mark the start of the Games.

Tickets are processed on a first-come, first-served basis and will guarantee entry to the Paralympic Heritage Flame Lighting Ceremony.
This year’s Ceremony is entitled "The Spirit of Endeavour" and recognises Stoke Mandeville as the birthplace of the Paralympic Movement.
VIPs, current and retired Paralympians, members of the public and officials will all be there to witness this international event.
In the run-up to the Flame Lighting Ceremony, Stoke Mandeville Stadium is set to play host to local schools for a day of taster sessions for disabled sport.
Also contributing to the day’s events is Leap’s Disability Sport Summit, an event designed to bring disability practitioners together to share best practice and work to get more people active for life.
"This year’s event is building up to be a fantastic spectacle that will once more honour Stoke Mandeville’s Paralympic Heritage and all the fantastic Paralympians who are gearing up to participate in the Pyeongchang Paralympic Winter Games," AVDC Councillor Angela MacPherson said.
The first-ever sporting events for people with a disability were hosted at Stoke Mandeville in Aylesbury Vale by Sir Ludwig Guttmann in 1948.
This sparked the birth of the global Paralympic Movement, this year celebrating its 70th anniversary.
"Now, the place that started the Paralympic Movement continues to be at its forefront, providing an environment that supports new and inclusive standards in sport, culture, health and education," an AVDC statement reads.
As the birthplace of the Paralympic Movement, Stoke Mandeville is also recognised as the home of the Paralympic Heritage Flame, and will continue to host the Lighting Ceremony for all future Paralympic Games.
The 2018 event will be broadcast live on Channel 4 News at 7.45pm GMT.
The Paralympic Heritage Flame Lighting Ceremony for Rio 2016 was attended by a number of legendary British Paralympians, including Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson and Kelly Gallagher, winner of the country's first-ever Winter Paralympic gold medal at Sochi 2014 in the women's visually impaired super-G.
Baroness Tanni, winner of 11 Paralympic gold medals and a keen advocate of disability sport in Britain, officially lit the Flame on stage, accompanied by Gallagher.
The Flame was then sent "virtually" to Brazil, where it merged with the Brazilian Regional Flames to create the Paralympic Flame that ran the Relay and lit the Cauldron in the Maracanã Stadium during the Opening Ceremony.
The Pyeongchang Winter Paralympics are scheduled to take place from March 9 to 18.
