Online ticketing and livestreaming platform, Citizen Ticket has secured five contracts worth six figures to deliver ticketing services for cultural events across Scotland this year. 

As events attempt to get back on their feet following an industry-wide pause during 2020, Citizen Ticket has made it their focus to support organisers as they return to business this year. New partners include: 

  • Fringe by the Sea – Returning to North Berwick this August (6-15) to deliver a 10-day programme with over 200 multi-arts events taking place. 
  • Edinburgh Cocktail Week – Coming back to Scotland’s capital this October (11-24) with 100 participating bars around the city and its largest Cocktail Village at Festival Square. 
  • Wondrous Woods – The grounds of Hopetoun House will be transformed into a spectacular woodland lightshow for four weeks between October and mid-November. 
  • Baillie Gifford Borders Book Festival – has changed dates to November (2-7) and its venue to Abbotsford House to honour the 250th anniversary of Sir Walter Scott. 
  • Biscuit Factory – the event space in Leith will be partnering with Citizen Ticket to support their outdoor food and drink experience and event spaces.  

The return of some of these established and popular cultural events in Scotland have seen strong initial demand for tickets as consumers demonstrate they’re keen for life to return to normal following Covid restrictions. 

Philip Shaw-Stewart (Chief Operating Officer and Co-founder, Citizen Ticket) said: “Our platform has been developed by event organisers for event organisers, we fully understand the challenges the industry has been faced with and have developed and enhanced our platform to support their return in 2021. 

“These contract wins are a huge achievement for the team and reinforce the success of our specialist booking technology solutions that have been designed to support multi-event festivals and illuminated trails.”
