WeGotTickets Announce Booking Free Day As They Celebrate A Decade Of Innovation
• Ticket Agency Celebrate 10th Birthday With Booking Fee Free Day
• Party At Bull & Gate, Site Of The First Event Company Ticketed
WeGotTickets, the leading UK tickets agency for small to medium venues, celebrates ten years of ticketing events in April with a ‘booking free’ day and party at the venue where it all began, The Bull & Gate in Kentish Town, North London.
Back in 2000 trying to sell tickets in advance for smaller events could be a frustrating, if not impossible, experience. Fed up with this situation a group of Oxford promoters knocked heads together and launched the site that would become WeGotTickets.
Fully embracing the internet WeGotTickets was the first ticket agency in the UK to sell paperless tickets, a revolutionary idea back then but one that has now become an industry standard.
Over the years WeGotTickets has maintained this reputation for innovation and for encouraging best practice throughout the ticket sector. Alongside features such as their charity donation modules and ticket reallocation service their booking fees remain the lowest and most transparent in the business.
To this day WeGotTickets continues to develop new ways of making life that little bit easier for gig goers, venues and promoters alike. On the 19th of April as a thank you to their customers who have purchased more than 1.6million tickets over the past ten years WeGotTickets will be waiving their booking fee.
Ticket buyers will have the choice of not paying the booking fee altogether or generous types that they are donating the money to one of ten charities picked by WeGotTickets’ staff.
Then that night, the company will up sticks from Oxford and descend on the legendary music venue The Bull & Gate for a party featuring live sets from exlovers and Jonquil and the Rockfeedback DJs.
Said Dave Newton, WeGotTickets founder, “What! 10 years! Really? All I remember is sitting around one Friday afternoon with my cohort Andy drinking a bottle of Sainsbury's Merlot trying to solve the problem of selling advance tickets to a show we were promoting in London. Obviously the solution must have been a good one as some 4000 other promoters seem to agree. Maybe it's time to crack open that bottle of Margaux '53.”
