The Cambridge Club Festival has expanded its work with Tickets for Good in a move that will see more than 100 tickets given to Ukrainian refugees and the charity workers who are helping them.
Tickets for Good and the festival, which takes place this coming weekend and will feature Diana Ross, have jointly funded free tickets in a first-of-its-kind project with the aim of improving accessibility to the event.
In an expansion of the partnership between Tickets for Good and The Cambridge Club Festival operator S&C Productions – which has already pledged hundreds of tickets to key workers with only a £3.50 booking fee – the two organisations have jointly funded 100 tickets which will be allocated to a range of deserving people.
Ukrainian charities will make the tickets available to both refugees and to the people volunteering time and resources to help them. Tickets will also be made available to healthcare workers, charity workers, teachers and NHS staff. It is the first time that Tickets for Good has expanded into these new areas.
Steve Rimmer, Tickets for Good’s founder and chief executive, said: “This is the second year of working alongside S&C Productions with their festivals Strawberries & Creem and The Cambridge Club Festival. We’re absolutely delighted that this partnership has already allowed hundreds of NHS staff to attend the events for a very small fee.
“Our goal at Tickets for Good is always to improve accessibility to events as we believe in the positive power of event participation. Piloting new ticketing platforms for many new groups of deserving people is a big step for us and we’re very grateful to The Cambridge Club for joining us in this mission and to WeGotTickets who have helped raise funds to cover part of the ticket cost.”
The subsidised tickets are part funded by The Ticket Fund. This fund is overseen by TIckets for Good and was generated by donations made by ticket buyers at WeGotTIckets.co.uk
The Cambridge Club Festival takes place from June 10-12 with a line-up including performances from Diana Ross, Nile Rodgers & Chic, The Jacksons and Gabrielle.
Sam Mellor, head of marketing for S&C Productions, said: “Building on a successful partnership with Tickets for Good in 2021 with NHS staff, we’re really pleased to expand this offer to key workers this year – as well as Ukrainian refugees and charity workers.
“We are committed to making our festivals as inclusive as possible, and accessible to everyone. The team are delighted to get the opportunity to give back a little, by welcoming so many people to the event this year.”
