South West 7s is an annual festival celebrating rugby sevens, camping and live music from across the UK. Held at Clifton RFC in Bristol from June 19th to 23rd, this year was SW7s’ highly successful debut. With more than 15 live bands, a selection of artisanal stalls and a competitive 7-a-side rugby tournament, huge amounts of fun (and sun) were had by all.
Rugby fans of all skill levels played together over the 5 day event, with prizes awarded to amateurs and charity donations made on behalf of the pros. For those less sporty or more family oriented, the summer festival also featured DJ sets and a comedy club, with plenty of delicious things to eat and drink.
If you missed SW7s this time around, don't worry! Next year's event is set to be even bigger, so grab your tickets while you can! Sales open on the 1st of September.
Why Ticket Tailor?
South West 7s’ director Thea Wise did plenty of online research before deciding on Ticket Tailor. Knowing that the festival would be a popular event with different pricing points and ticket types, Thea chose Ticket Tailor for its affordable monthly rate, Facebook integration and ease of use.
Our widget also integrated perfectly into South West 7s' website, and offered a clear and straightforward way for attendees to find and buy their tickets - no redirection necessary!
Being able to set up a variety of ticket types quickly and easily proved especially useful in combination with our check-in app. Promotions for father's day and family bundles were simple to create, as were VIP tickets that featured access to private stands, a secret disco and exclusive food and drink. All of these could be scanned by phone at the door - meaning less fuss and more fun for everyone involved.
