Tickets for Good celebrates landmark figure

Tickets for Good has reached a landmark figure, with over 100,000 NHS staff and frontline workers having registered to the service, receiving savings of over £2m (€2.4m/$2.38m) in face-value tickets.

The feel-good ticketing company has so far registered thousands of key workers including those in the charity sector, teachers and carers, as well as the 100,000 NHS workers.

Tickets for Good utilises a platform to distribute free tickets with a small booking fee between £1 and £3.50 for members. The dedicated NHS platform was launched in 2021 and has now attracted over 100,000 members. These workers have been able to save over £2m in tickets for theatre, live music, sports and other events.

The platform initially launched the ‘Ticket Bank’ program in 2019 for charity partners so that venues, promoters and event organisers could upload free tickets for local charities and social groups. During the pandemic, Tickets for Good focused on a similar initiative for NHS workers.

Members can now access tickets for a number of events including festivals like Tramlines and Strawberries & Creem, as well as The Cambridge Club Festival. Theatre tickets are also available on the platform for shows at venues such as The Old Vic and The National Theatre.

Steve Rimmer, co-founder and chief executive of Tickets for Good, said: “It’s fantastic to reach this milestone of 100,000 signups which led to us giving away over £2m worth of tickets out to our hard working NHS staff.

“Watching Tickets for Good grow and reach so many people in such a short space of time has been an amazing experience. Meeting a wide range of people from across the events sector who share our belief in the benefits of event attendance has been hugely encouraging and I look forward to continuing to make these events as accessible as possible for many more people in the future.”
