Booking fees for a brighter future

Our latest innovation allows event organisers to select a charity to which we will donate 50% of our booking fees.

The new feature officially launched this week, with a donation to Northern Irish mental health and suicide support charity PIPS, who were chosen by Northern Ireland Science Festival.

With over 180 events across more than 50 venues in the region, NI Science Festival hosts a range of events for adults, families and young people exploring the science of you, the universe, and everything in between. This year’s event recently took place over 11 days, with speakers including Brian Cox, Liz Bonnin and Maddie Moate, and hot topics such as climate change, space travel, neuroscience, democracy and the internet, autism, and many more discussed.

With shared interests in technology and making a positive impact on the world, 2019 was our first partnership with NI Science Festival.

“We chose Citizen Ticket as our primary ticketing provider for 2019 based on their innovative yet also practical technology,” said Chris McCreery, Director of NI Science Festival, “The ability to contribute to PIPS further cemented this decision, and has received fantastic feedback from our customers.”

“Our decision to incorporate charitable donations into our booking fees has been a no brainer for us,” said Citizen Ticket's co-founder Phil Shaw-Stewart. “As individuals, all of our team members have a strong social conscious, and this is reflected throughout our company and objectives.”

By choosing Citizen Ticket to host events, organisers will help us to achieve our target of raising and donating £100,000 to charity by the end of 2020.

Martina Mcilkenny of PIPS thanked everyone involved for the donation, “We can’t thank Citizen Ticket, NI Science Festival and all of the festival attendees enough for their generous donation. It’s great to see businesses like this giving something back and focusing on social objectives.” Discussing the organisation’s work, Martina says, “The money raised will go towards counselling to save lives and help those bereaved through suicide to cope with their grief and be able to live their life again, without forgetting their loved one.“
