It’s been a busy number of weeks here at Skiddle HQ and it’s looking set to continue based on the recent UK Government roadmap. We’ve seen a huge surge in consumer confidence as customers are super keen to get their hands on tickets for summer events and festivals, while promoters are listing more and more events with us in the run-up to outdoor events and a potential lift on restrictions in June in England.
Make sure you start listing with us now to make use of this wave of popularity!

Time to update your TBC events!
Postponing events with a date to be confirmed was a lifeline when COVID-19 struck and hopefully now with the roadmap, you will be in a position to reschedule these and announce a new date to your customers.
To make things easy, we’ve added a list of all the events with a TBC date onto your dashboard in the Promotion Centre. Please select [Update details] next to each event to announce a new date or cancel them.
Unsure about restrictions in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland?
While we’ve heard a lot about COVID restrictions in England, there’s been some uncertainty around the restrictions in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. With that in mind, we’ve put together a thread on Twitter with the latest on COVID restrictions in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Join our Women in Isolation webinar in partnership with Music Support
To keep the momentum of International Women’s Day going and encourage these conversations long-term, we’re proud to announce the third in our series of webinars with Music Support and Thrive around women in isolation.
