Use Tix to Incorporate Social Distancing Into Your Venue

The Tools to Safely Maximize Your Venue's Seating Capacity

Since its inception our Social Distancing option has been a game-changer for those organizations offering reserved seating and looking for a way to safely fill their venue. Our innovative social distancing feature allows you to continue selling tickets to your reserved seating events, while providing your patrons with a physical buffer that will give them peace of mind, and allow them to enjoy the event. It will also help your organization adhere to governmental regulations and other public safety measures put in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19.


When enabled, Tix uses a custom algorithm to automatically hold a configurable number of seats on either side of your patronís selected seats. As other patrons purchase tickets, the seats that are set aside for social distancing will be denoted as being Reserved for Social Distancing so that it is clear to those purchasing tickets that there will be space between them and other patrons.
ē You control the number of seats you wish to leave between groups of patrons
ē You can change the buffer from performance to performance
ē You can adjust the buffer as needs and safety guidelines evolve
ē You can use this feature for online and box office ticket sales
Our goal is to increase the safety and comfort level of your patrons and reduce the workload and maximize revenue for the organizations like yours.

Complementary to your ability to incorporate social distancing in your seating charts is your ability to set a cap on the number of tickets you wish to sell to your reserved events. So, for example, if you have a venue that seats 500 patrons, but your current COVID-19 guidelines dictate that you can only sell to a 50% occupancy, you would set your cap to 250. Once that cap is reached, no additional tickets for your event can be sold.

The net affect of using this setting, and doing so in combination with our existing social distancing seating chart option, is that you can still offer reserved seating, and patrons can still select their seats, all while abiding by your current COVID-19 guidelines for social distancing and event capacity.

Tix has helped thousands of organizations sell millions of event tickets. We welcome the opportunity to bring success to your organization, too.

British Prime time TV opportunity


My name is Chris - I'm a casting researcher at ITV. I'm currently casting for the new series of Britain's Got Talent (2021) and looking for great young talent. I am especially interested in finding young boy singers with incredible voices

As a former performer myself, Iím a huge advocate of using our platform to gain exposure for young artists and helping them to begin and advance in their careers. Our show is a prime-time Saturday night programme reaching out to 12 million viewers on the prestigious ITV channel alone, let alone our social channels which collectively reached a billion views last year.

I have attached Shaheen Jafargholiís appearance on our show below which as you can see has been viewed by 53 million people itself.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYDM3MIzEHo [eur05.safelinks.protection.outlook.com]

Therefore, I was wondering if you would have any young male talent that you think would be suitable for the show as we would love to be able to showcase them.

Please feel free to spread the message around / share my contact details below. It would be great to arrange a quick informal chat to tell you more about the show, and how it will be working next year, if you think you may have anybody that fits the bill.

Best wishes,

Historical amateur dramatics

Hi, Iím not sure if this is the right place to enquire, so apologies in advance if so.
I am trying to find info on a distant relative. I have a newspaper cutting saying she belonged to the West Sussex players. She played in The Queen and the Rebels, I think early 60ís, and Witness for the prosecution in 1959. Her name is Elizabeth Marriott.
Is there any kind of archive for past plays/actors and actresses in amateur dramatics? Or could you point in a direction where I might find more info, would love to know what other parts she played.
Many thanks,

Peter's response:

Hi Claire,

I'm afraid I don't have any information on the West Sussex Players and I don't know of any archive for actors / actresses appearing in amateur theatre. Certainly in the early 60s there wouldn't have been digital records. I have found a website http://www.westsussex.info/theatre-groups.shtml West Sussex info which contains a section on theatre groups. I couldn't see the Players listed but they may have someone on staff who might remember?

I will post your query in the #Advice section of www.dramagroups.com asking anyone who is able to help to contact you directly via your email address.

I wish you luck in your search and would be interested to hear if you are successful in tracking your relative down.

Best Wishes,

After The Turn: The Mystery of Bly Manor by Nine Knocks Theatre

Reviewed by: Elaine Chapman @elainec46302904

Review date: 17th Aug 2020

Edinburgh Fringe venue The Space has created a range of online productions that are available between 8th-30th August 2020 during the time in which the Festival would have been taking place. With lockdown taking its toll on the entire Arts and Theatre industry many productions have created online performances.

One of the productions available is After the Turn: The Mystery of Bly Manor which has been written and directed by George Cooper and Ellie Hardwick the writing duo have set their piece five years on from Henry Jamesís novella The Turn of the Screw.

The television-style documentary production uses interviews from friends and family to piece together the events leading up to the mysterious tragedy surrounding Theodora (Eilidh Gibson). The main focus in presenting the evidence takes the form of video diary entries which she had left behind. These are sensitively presented by her dear friend Marcus Bryson (Brian Weldich).

Theodora Hill was hired as the governess for the two Bly children Miles and Flora while in residence at Bly Manor. The excitement and enthusiasm in accepting her new role are short-lived as a stranger appears unsettling her and causing immense anxiety. The dark and eerie mystery surrounding Bly Manor soon begins to unfold before her.

The gripping short ghost story created by James in 1898 has been captured in this modernised version. The cast brilliantly succeeded in creating the horror and dread first bought to life through the original novella.

Itís extremely tempting with a production of this calibre to write an in-depth review explaining everything that they have achieved. However, I donít want to spoil anyoneís enjoyment of the chilling performances. Therefore, I would strongly urge you to take the time to watch it while itís available online.

As creatives have begun to produce work during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is one of the exceptional examples available until August 30th. Nine Knocks Theatre company have shown the wealth of talented actors in their company along with their ability to create a powerful and atmospheric performance without actually being on the same stage.

Four Stars.
