The city-based ticketing agency Aberdeen Box Office will shut down in order to install a new and improved booking service, with seat preview and print-tickets-at-home options.
During the transfer, it will not be possible to buy tickets from the agency online, by phone or in person at the Music Hall, His Majesty’s Theatre or The Lemon Tree.
Aberdeen Performing Arts (APA) are switching to AudienceView, one of the market leaders in this field with around 150 clients in 12 countries around the world, selling more than 60 million tickets every year.
“The innovative system will have a host of exciting new features,” explained APA’s systems administrator Leon Gray. “And looking further ahead, we hope to use new software to enable customers to buy tickets or make reservations directly through the social-media website Facebook, and a mobile-optimised website, so they can so the same thing using their smart phones.”
Once the new system is up and running customers will be able to access the new system in the usual way at www.boxofficeaberdeen.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre ticket desks.
