Festival box office at Blackwell’s opens

Tickets now available in store and by phone

Blackwell's box officeA new festival box office opens tomorrow (Wednesday, January 14) in Blackwell’s bookshop, Broad Street, Oxford.

Customers will be able to buy tickets for all festival events at the box office located in the famous Norrington Room at the heart of the store. Telephone booking is also available on 0870 343 1001. Opening times for both in-store and telephone purchases are Monday-Friday 10.30am to 4.30pm.

The festival has a new ticketing system for 2014 developed in partnership with Oxford-based online ticket agent WeGot Tickets. WeGot Tickets has been hosting the festival’s online ticketing since early December and events are already selling well. A new kiosk system has been developed by WeGot Tickets that integrates sales made at Blackwell’s and at the festival box office with the WeGot Tickets database.

This year’s festival will be ticketless. Customers will receive an email with a booking reference that effectively is the ticket. Alternatively, a printout can be provided with the booking reference when tickets are purchased. The festival will have a record of all purchases on the door at each event. All you will need is your name and postcode to verify your entry or a printout of your email. We do also recommend you carry some form of identity such as a driving licence.

The Blackwell’s box office will operate until the eve of the festival when it will be replaced by a box office in the festival marquee situated between the Sheldonian Theatre and the Bodleian Library.
