The Side Room - Selling event tickets online


There are a fair number of members clubs in London. Many charge expensive fees, most focus on in-house events, and nearly all of them are aimed at both sexes or cater to men exclusively. The Side Room does none of these things. tsr

An innovative and modern club for women, The Side Room designs every event from the ground up, then selects the perfect venue to host each occasion. As a social club, activities run the gamut from wine tasting and bespoke museum visits to lively debates with experts in various fields. The creation of entrepreneur Robin Kendall, The Side Room is one of only a few members clubs in London that caters specifically to women, though men may attend many events as the guests of members.

Membership to The Side Room is free and events are well subsidised, occurring several times a month and always somewhere different. Highly advantageous for members with busy schedules, the varied timing of events and Robin’s desire to keep prices affordable made Ticket Tailor the perfect fit for ticketing services.

Why Ticket Tailor?

With an attractive website designed in WordPress, The Side Room needed ticketing that would integrate seamlessly without special tools or the need to move web elements around. Ticket Tailor plays nice with WordPress and comes with easily configurable event pages if clients prefer not to use our widget. The result is a crystal clear and user-friendly way to sell event tickets online.

Payments are transferred quickly and efficiently from multiple active events, giving Robin the flexibility she needs to set up new ones as they become available. With no per-ticket fees or hidden costs, members of The Side Room can continue to meet, listen, learn, taste and explore London, for a price that can't be found anywhere else.

It's quick and easy to use and payments are forwarded as and when they are received, so we benefit by having the money in our account immediately.  We've also been impressed with their customer service response times."

South West 7s - Selling festival tickets online


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.

Selling tickets on your site (with widgets!)


Ticket Tailor lets you sell tickets directly from your website using our widgets. It might be blindingly obvious why this is a pretty nifty feature, but just in case it's not, here are three reasons why widgets are the way forward for ticket sales.

Customers will stay on your site for longer

Which is always a good thing.

If you've spent time putting together an attractive website then the last thing you want to do is send visitors somewhere else to buy tickets. You want them to stay, read the content, enjoy your carefully selected images and hopefully come back sometime in the future. What you don't want to be is a 5 second stop-over before a redirect to another events site.

You're not competing with anyone else

All the events on your website are your events.

That sounds pretty obvious, but if you sell tickets by redirecting customers to a different site that also lists similar events, you're feeding potential sales to competitors. That's either very charitable or the event organizer's version of Hard Mode.

You're offering a clean and professional buying experience

Because our widget looks good, so you will too!

Yeah, I said it. But let's be frank: nothing says 'event pro' like taking payments and issuing tickets by yourself. Third party middle-men are useful, but they're hardly ideal - especially when it comes to ticket fees. And by the way, our widget works on any HTML site including WordPress, Wix and Squarespace.
