Salford based Quaytickets is celebrating its 10th birthday in style by signing a ticketing agreement with two high profile West End theatres.

The agency will process some 60,000 tickets a year for the famous Aldwych and Dominion theatres – which are currently home to Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and Lord of The Dance: Dangerous Games respectively. Both theatres are owned and operated by entertainment industry giant, The Nederlander Organisation.

Rachel Miller, head of Quaytickets – which is a trading division of The Lowry, said: “The Aldwych and Dominion theatres are two of the best-known venues in London and we are proud to be associated with them. As we celebrate Quaytickets’ first decade in business, securing contracts with truly industry-leading organisations like Nederlander really is the icing on the cake.”

The awarding of the contract means the creation of 20 new part-time jobs at the company’s headquarters in Salford. On behalf of everybody at North West End we’d like to offer our congratulations on this contract and also wish Quaytickets a very happy 10th birthday.

Quaytickets was established in 2005. Today, it sells more than 1.3m tickets a year on behalf of a range of clients including: East Lancashire Steam Railway, Manchester Pride, Nimax Theatres and Stockport Plaza.

The Nederlander Organisation owns and operates theatres across the US, including the Palace in New York and the Pantages in Los Angeles, which was once the home of the Academy Awards.
