Another Casualty...

'Just to let you know that as of 23rd March The Booth will cease trading. This is largely due to the changes in online booking and the fact that they are unable to compete effectively using the business model they have'......(from an email to clients of The Booth)

The Booth is an ticketing service for arts events across Scotland - it was operated as part of HI Arts.

Several arts organisations in D+G use The Booth for their ticket sales

'In 2004, with no system for customers to buy tickets online for different events within the Highlands & Islands, and limited availability of credit and debit card facilities, Highland and Islands Arts undertook an extensive research project and in depth feasibility study. Booth Scotland was born with the secured funding it required to go ahead as an ambitious online ticketing project. It gained financial support for the project from the European Regional Development Fund, complementing funding already in place from the project’s other key supporters, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and the Scottish Arts Council Lottery fund.' - from The Booth
