WORLD THEATRE DAY: LOVE YOUR LOCAL THEATRE
On this episode of the Arts & Everything in Between Podcast, we are celebrating World Theatre Day with the exciting launch of Theatre Token’s Love Your Local Theatre 2023 campaign!
Lucy Costello, Head of Marketing at Ticketsolve, sat down with Head of Theatre Tokens – and long time arts management professional – Jamie Snelgrove, to get a sneak peek into this year’s Love Your Local Theatre campaign, which includes some amazing incentives to get audiences back into theatres.
In this episode, Jamie shared his concerns about the continued challenges facing theatres around audience hesitancy and last minute booking behaviours. He explains how the partnership with The National Lottery (who has put £1 million into the campaign), will encourage audiences to start booking again through a free £25 theatre voucher scheme which launches today – 27th of March – in celebration of World Theatre Day.
Jamie and Lucy also discuss Theatre Tokens’ (a non-profit and part of UK Theatre and SOLT) mission of supporting theatres, however possible and the ways that theatres can get the support they need.
THE ARTS AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN PODCAST
It’s tough but rewarding working in the arts and often so busy you have little time to share with your peers and investigate new ideas. Every couple weeks join the team at Ticketsolve as they interview arts industry experts getting their take on the biggest issues facing the arts world today. There will be ideas to try, practical tips, lots of learning and of course – lots of laughs. If you work in theatres, venues, festivals or the arts and cultural sector this podcast is what you need!

CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY AT TICKETSOLVE
In this episode, we have brought our colleagues who identify as women together to celebrate and reflect on International Women’s Day and what it means to be a woman in the workplace. You’ll hear about their backgrounds, how they got into the arts and eventually Ticketsolve. The panel talks candidly about the challenges they have faced in their own careers, breaking stereotypes, and what the future holds for women working not just in the arts but across every industry.
