Mission

Mission

The most important people to us are the general public; they pay our salaries by purchasing concert tickets, and for too long they have not been treated with the respect they deserve. One of the key areas we will be tackling is secondary ticketing, which has a huge negative impact on the UK live music scene.

We are committed to tackling the problems surrounding the resale of tickets and providing fans with better-than-ever live experiences. To that end, See Tickets will be our exclusive primary ticketing partner for all events.
