Festival Congress 2016

As friends of the AIF, we first attended the Festival Congress in Cardiff in November 2015, hoping to catch up with some of our clients and learn a thing or two more about the festival industry in which we are so involved. We loved it and were overwhelmed at the passion and engagement of everyone attending (even on the second

2015 - it's been a good one

There are fewer and fewer people in the TTS office every day as people start to finish work before Christmas. As it's my last day tomorrow I thought I'd end an almost full year of blogging with a summary of what we've done this year.

When I sat down to put the list together I wasn't sure where to start.

Our culture

A lot of people have asked what it's like to work at TheTicketSellers. So we thought we'd write a bit about it to try and explain what makes it such a special place to be.

The offices

We've blogged about our offices before, but we think it's worth saying again. They really are lovely, with as much natural light as

Pay-as-you-go

We're always looking to offer new features which benefit customers and promoters alike and this autumn we've delivered another cracking addition to our website.

We've already built two great ways to spread the cost of paying for tickets:

1) Deposit and balance - the customer pays an initial deposit of a fixed amount and has a certain amount of time

Make it so

We are delighted to announce that tickets for Just So Festival 2016 - which is regularly voted one of the best family festivals in the UK - recently went on sale via our website.

Early bird tickets went on sale a couple of weeks ago. Didn't remember to buy one? Not to

Feeding the masses

How do you feed 5000 people three times a day on a festival site? How do you cater for 40,000 covers over ten days without completely losing your mind? How do you make sure you're feeding the right people - and only the right people - when there's a queue of hungry crew lining up for breakfast?

The answer

Greater than the sum(mer) of its parts

We are absolutely loving summer at TheTicketSellers. Perhaps not the weather, which has been unusually rubbish even for Britain. But from a work perspective things are going really, really well.

We're proud to announce that summer 2015 is our busiest ever. We're involved in so many festivals and events that it's difficult to keep track of them all. We're selling

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3...

One of the sad truths of our modern society (at least here in the UK) is that every year we all seem to be a little bit worse off, financially speaking. Whether it's paying slightly more tax on things, or paying tax on more things, the money we earn has a way of disappearing slightly faster than it used to.

Welcome to paradise

At 6am on 11th June, blinking in the crisp, early morning Birmingham air, our events team lugged bags of gear into the back of the X5. Despite being a decent sized 4x4, the car was soon full to the brim with camping gear, entry equipment, food, water, oh, and the team. They were off to Eden Festival where we'd been

We've redorated, now it's your turn

A while ago we were delighted to show our rebranded website - and rightly so, as the new branding has brought our brand identity to the level we've always aspired to be.

Now, it's our turn to help you improve the way your events are presented to the ticket buying public.

You know what our event pages look like: grey

Taking Pride in our work

Last weekend, 23rd-24th May, Birmingham Pride 2015 took place under the glorious spring sunshine in the heart of England's second city.

The Hurst Street area was transformed into a shimmering array of colours, costumes and colourful characters as first the parade, then the celebrations, and finally the partying took place.

Amidst the good natured fun nestled our dedicated events team,

When we started this blog we knew it couldn't all be dry, densely-written articles about finding apps on your iPhone. There has to be some fun too. And that really sums up the atmosphere in TheTicketSellers' HQ here in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham. Whilst we work hard, and thanks to our exceptionally talented team, deliver results at a phenomenal pace,

Relax. We've got you covered.

We're excited about summer. Are you? We're selling for so many exciting events and festivals that our staff are chomping at the bit to get on site and start scanning tickets.

Buying for an event so far in the future is exciting. You've got your ticket. You've bought a new tent. Your new Le Chameau wellies are sat downstairs eagerly
