The brief

We were asked to work with the team behind the annual Sidmouth Jazz Festival from its initial launch in 2022. 

Sidmouth Jazz needed a website to sell tickets for a large number of individual events, with some artistes are playing multiple venues at different times. The site needed a flexible system for listing multiple artists on the same bill and on individual events. Sales needed to generate PDF tickets that could be scanned with a barcode and checked in on entry, as well as provide detailed ticket sales reporting.

Our solution

We used our favoured platform - ProteanCMS - to deliver a website that is highly accessible and responsive.

We created bespoke modules for listing artiste details and events, with the ability to sell multiple ticket types which generate unique codes. Artiste and event information is encoded for indexing and listing on Google Events.

New events, artists and tickets types can be easily created in the CMS by the festival organisers. Tickets can be published and sold with an integration with Stripe for collecting payment and we also enabled services to generate codes for discounted ticket sales.

To cover the marketing side of the festival, we integrated Campaign Monitor for emails and provided social media support before and during the festival in 2022. 

The website was fundamental in the successful launch of the festival, enabling large quantities of ticket sales to the live events.
