Whilst many effects of lockdown remain in place, certain parts of life are returning to some sort of normality. One of those is places of worships. On July 4th the UK government allowed places of worship to reopen in a safe and socially distanced way. That meant churches and mosques around the country had to find new processes and ways of keeping their congregations safe.
At Ticket Tailor we’ve seen the impact of that with over 500 churches, mosques and other places of worship signing up to use our ticketing technology in 2020. The Sun paper in the UK caught wind of this trend and wrote up a piece for their City section on 11th August 2020.
Here’s an extract from the piece titled “Religion’s Good Book”:
Nearly 500 places of worship have signed up to the Ticket Tailor online ticketing platform, a platform normally used for gig and live entertainment.
This allows worshippers to have a socially distanced designated seat and the church or mosque to manage capacity. Worshippers can choose from single seat, family or "bubble" tickets.
Ticket Tailor founder and CEO Jonny White said: "Ticket gives worshippers not only the opportunity to get back to normal life in a safe and secure way - but allows for places of worship to raise fund".
