    Online Theatre / Seat booking system + online payment

    Hi All,

    This is a bit of a long shot...

    Do any of you currently use some form of online booking/ordering system for the management of Theatre / Performances etc?

    Essentially, I am looking for a system that would allow us to create a seating plan and allow visitors to our site reserve/book seats and pay online - much like a cinema type system.

    Many thanks,

    That seems more public, than anything. I assume mb that you want something for parents etc rather than the whole world?

    This looks nifty:
    Sell Tickets online using our online ticket software

    Thanks guys.
    The requirement is probably somewhere between both responses actually.
    We would want Parents to be able to come along for performances and have the option of selecting seats / booking online, but would still want to be able to sell to the public too.

    One thing I didn't mention, it would be preferable if the system linked with a ticket printing solution - i.e. barcodes or something similar, so that we can scan people on on the door (similar to BETT in that respect - no fancy tickets, just a quick zap to check if they have genuinely paid!)

    This doesn't appear to allow visitors to book specific seats. They can only 'see' the seating plan rather than select a specific seat within it.
    (Apart from that core requirement missing, the system looks similar to what we are looking for)

    Yes - we have a system installed here that does ALL that you are looking for called Oscar. It's hosted in house, but can be hosted by them as well I believe...

    Savoy Systems Ltd - Box Office Software Solutions

    Speak to Patrick Hort, and mention us!

    I've spent the entire evening going through all suggestions on this (old) thread as well as many many more, and the only one I'm impressed with is TicketSource.co.uk - so much so that our Annual School Production is now live for 1st week in December!

    I don't usually resurrect old threads, but it took so much finding useful relevanr threads on here in the first place that I thought I'd update it for anyone looking in the future.

    Thanks howartp.
    I've actually moved on from the school I was based at which had the requirement, but we ultimately didn't proceed with anything.
    I'll pass the details on to my old team though, as your find does look very promising. I'm sure others will be interested when this comes up in searches so thanks for the ressurection!
