Portsmouth Guildhall is delighted to announce that EVENTIM UK (“EVENTIM”) will be the new provider of the iconic venue’s ticketing services from Summer 2022.
Following an extensive tender and evaluation process, EVENTIM was selected as the new partner in a deal that is expected to span the next 7 years and will provide outstanding service to our customers and a cutting-edge ticketing software and integrated marketing solution, EVENTIM.Inhouse.

Furthermore, EVENTIM’s experience across the live entertainment industry incorporating the planning, organisation and promotion of concerts, tours, festivals and other live events has secured them the exceptional position of market leader of the European concert and events industry.
A member of STAR (Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers), the leading self-regulatory body for the entertainment ticketing industry across the UK, EVENTIM follows the organisation’s Code of Practice ensuring that transactions are clear, straightforward and that customers are treated fairly.
CEO of The Guildhall Trust, the organisation responsible for the management of Portsmouth Guildhall, Andy Grays said, “We are delighted to have reached this momentous partnership with EVENTIM and we look forward to working with their team to develop an insightful and comprehensive approach to ticketing and marketing support that improves efficiency across the Guildhall and delivers a first-rate experience for our customers.
