@bhlivetickets expands across leading south coast venues

Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) and Bournemouth Pavilion have changed their social media handles from @BICPAV to @bhlivetickets.

@bhlivetickets brings together Bournemouth International Centre and Bournemouth Pavilion with their official ticket agent BH Live Tickets on social media.

This means that the venues’ 31,000 followers across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram will be able to find out what’s on across a lot more venues and locations across the region including at Pyramids in Portsmouth and at AFC Bournemouth matches.

BH Live Tickets was established in 2005 and sells more than 500,000 tickets a year for events across the south. It is also a ticketing agent for AFC Bournemouth and local festivals including Bournemouth 7s, Upton House Music Festival, Night Air and Reading Festival.

BH Live Tickets is unlike other ticketing agencies because it is part of a social enterprise.

The biggest feel good factor is that revenue generated through BH Live Tickets is invested back into the local community to provide subsidised cultural events and leisure activities and support local jobs.

Matt Goode, BH Live’s Head of Marketing and Communications says, “Bournemouth International Centre and Bournemouth Pavilion have a well-established and respected social media presence on many channels including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Google+. There are more than 400 events a year in those venues alone, and even more are happening in our sister venues and at events up and down the country. And we want our customers to know about those too!

“The change to @bhlivetickets means our followers will be able to find out about even more gigs and events while still keeping in touch with what’s going on in our venues. The changeover will be seamless and people will still be able to check in and share their reviews with us; something which we and the bands who play in our venues really love to see.”

Like and follow @bhlivetickets for all the latest on gigs and events across the south coast.
