COMMENT :: BOOKING FEES

We received several emails complaining about the high booking fees seetickets.com charged for the Scribe show. We agree that £2.20 is a very high price to charge but were tied to using The Forum’s ticketing agents by the hire contract.

For The Black Seeds and Fat Freddys Drop shows we will be using Ticketweb. They charge £1.20 for venue pick up and £2.70 if you have the ticket posted to you. To speed up venue pick up’s and thus reduce queues, for every 150 of you who buy “will call” tickets, we will hire an extra person to give you your tickets on the door. Hopefully this means we can get everyone in quickly and painlessly.

We have also printed out proper tickets and will be selling them at our Big Chill Bar sessions on 8th June and 13th July, and at the ToastLife Festival on Clapham Common on 11th June, where we will be running a CD stall. These direct sales will have NO commission or booking fee, but will be cash only.
