Petition: Review Need For Social Distancing Inside Theatres Before November

Given the dire situation the theatre industry is in we call on the Government to review the continued imposition of social distancing in indoor theatres as soon as possible (and on a regular basis thereafter should it need to remain in force) and well before the currently stated timeline of November

The theatre industry is benefiting from the culture bail-out but that sum cannot do more than help some venues and organisations survive the current closure. The decision not to review social distancing until November is adversely affecting recovery chances and jeopardising thousands of jobs and many venues. The rationale for keeping theatres closed for months longer must be properly debated and speedier consideration needs to be given to the possibility of lifting social distancing in theatres.

Waddesdon Manor Reopens its Grounds with Help from See Tickets

Waddesdon Manor Reopens its Grounds with Help from See Tickets

See Tickets is now official partner to the National Trust’s Waddesdon Manor, selling advance entry tickets to its grounds which reopened on 3 June.

Waddesdon Manor was looking for a ticketing partner to support its social distancing measures which include limiting on-site capacity and removing walk-up sales. Visitors can now purchase advance entry grounds tickets by choosing from hourly time slots at the venue’s new ticketing site here

Matthew Hulme, Head of Visitor Operations at Waddesdon Manor said: “If we didn’t have the ability to cap visitor numbers to our grounds, we simply would not have been able to reopen. See Tickets has enabled us to welcome back visitors in a way which meets social distancing requirements and we’re pleased to say that initial sales have been very strong.”

Rob Wilmshurst, CEO at See Tickets said: “Social distancing means a new approach to ticketing and increasing numbers of venues and attractions are looking at how they use time slots, capacity limits and advance online sales to allow them to reopen. We are here to equip clients with all they need to move forward during this challenging time.”

See Tickets has created white label ticket sites with time slot entry for the Houses of Parliament, Christmas at Kew and FriendsFest. See Tickets is also ticketing partner to Glastonbury Festival, SJM Concerts, Ideal Home Show and Society of London Theatre.

An update for West End ticket holders - 08.06.2020

UPDATE MONDAY 8th JUNE 2020

London’s West End looks forward to welcoming audiences back into theatres as soon as performances can safely resume. See Tickets and the other agencies have been working with the Society of London Theatres to agree and share the below information.

To give customers clarity and help operationally, performances have been cancelled across the West End on a rolling month by month basis since the start of lockdown (with refunds occurring as funds are received back from the theatres, in line with the latest advice from the Government and the Society of London Theatres.

Every show is now extending cancellations until Sunday 2 August with some extending the cancelled performances beyond this date. There is nothing that you need to do, if your performance has been cancelled, you will receive an email from us regarding the cancellation and a refund for the tickets you booked with us at See Tickets. As you can imagine, we have an unprecedented number of ticket orders which we are processing in strict date order of performance. We ask for your patience and understanding as the current circumstances means that it is impossible to process all tickets within our usual 14 days.

This does not mean theatres will reopen on 3 August; and further cancellations will continue to be announced on a rolling basis. The decision to reopen theatres will be made based on government and scientific advice on gatherings and events. Different theatres and productions are likely to reopen at different times.

SOLT Chief Executive Julian Bird said: ''We are grateful to customers for the continued patience and kindness they are showing during this challenging time for our industry. With 300,000 people visiting West End theatres in a normal week, it remains a major undertaking to process refunds, exchanges and credit notes, particularly when many staff are working remotely. Please rest assured that we are all working as quickly as we can, and we appreciate the continued support and understanding of our audiences.''
