Update from LondonTheatre1.com and LastMinuteTheatreTickets.com
As you will know, due to the coronavirus, theatres and venues have closed across the UK with no end in sight as to when they will re-open.
We have been online for over 10 years and each day have had many thousand visitors to our two websites – either to buy tickets or to read theatre-related news, reviews and interviews with cast and creatives.
As a business, our income is primarily from ticket sales (via Encore Tickets and ATG Tickets) and a small amount of advertising. As you can imagine, both of these areas have now led to our income being reduced to virtually zero.
Within the world of theatre, we always endeavour to be supportive of the performing arts industry and those working in it – most of this support comes via our websites and through social media. ‘We do what we can when we can‘.
Our aim is to survive in business and be stronger for it, albeit some way down the line. Meanwhile, we will continue to support those in the world of theatre as much as we can in this difficult time.
Moving forward, we are diversifying into other primarily ‘arts-related’ areas in order to try to bring in some revenue, as well as hopefully being of interest to you! These are listed below.
One of these areas is through Amazon. May I ask that IF you are looking to buy anything through Amazon that you first click on our link and then browse etc – some of the commission is as little as 1% but it all helps! Any item purchased by you will be at EXACTLY the same amount for you – the commission to us is paid by Amazon.
We have put together a list of resources that may be of interest to you (please share)
Watch Theatre Online or at Home – Musicals, Plays, Drama, Opera, Ballet
Many thanks for your continued support and very best wishes and good health for now and the future.
