The Lord Mayor’s Show, the world’s largest unrehearsed procession, has extended its technology partnership with Tickets.com, following 14 years working together to process all ticketing for the event.
An annual event, the Lord Mayor’s Show marks the inauguration of the new Lord Mayor of the City of London. The three-mile long ceremony dates back more than 800 years, when the City was first granted the right to elect its own Mayor. In that time, whilst the route has been adapted and changed through the years, the procession has taken place almost every year, including surviving two bouts of the plague and the Great Fire of London.
Up to 500,000 people line the streets to view the procession completely free of charge. However, for those who would prefer a little more comfort, the event offers two grandstand seating areas near St Paul’s Cathedral, which regularly sell out.
Show Zones are also set up in nearby Paternoster Square and Bloomberg Arcade.
The procession attracts a diverse, large-scale audience and so to facilitate these unique technology and logistical requirements, The Lord’s Mayor Show works with Tickets.com for management of all ticketing for the grandstands, including the availability to purchase tickets online, by phone or by post.
This entire process – from orders through to fulfilment – is powered by Tickets.com, including staff assistance, and continues to play an important role in the successful delivery of the event.
“We’re very happy with the service that Tickets.com provides; the team is incredibly accommodating and well-trained, well able to support our guests with any queries they may have,” says Helen Field, Head of Business Engagement, who works with the Pageantmaster.
“Over the years the partnership has evolved into one that means Tickets.com is now much more than just a ticketing supplier; we get excellent feedback from our attendees and the support we receive is fantastic.”
The 2019 Lord Mayor’s Show will take place on Saturday 09 November and tickets are now on general sale. Click here to buy tickets online.
