What's not to love about bank holidays?

Vinyl We Love - Record Store Day

You may or may not know that TheTicketSellers started as a record store called Old Skool Daze many, many years ago. Since then we've got a new name, (TheTicketSellers) a new HQ and have grown to become one of the leading ticket agents in the UK.

TTS Plays: Best of the West (Midlands)

And I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing better in the post-festival lull than watching a couple

In the current climate, it’s very difficult to avoid the relentless click-bait articles that pose a threat to your own sanity. With the formulas Facebook seem to have imposed upon our News Feeds, you’re oblivious to what your family, friends, and colleagues are accomplishing, and are instead shown that the girl

Meet the team (part 3)

At TheTicketSellers we, like so many other companies, pride ourselves on being an equal opportunities employer. We believe that everyone has the right to be treated as an individual and recognised for their individual contributions to the success of our company. Even twins.
