Our WebTicketManger (“WTM”) fundraise had some fantastic coverage from FT Adviser’s Joe McGrath, which featured on the publication’s homepage last week.

‘Growthdeck has announced a £550,000 enterprise investment scheme-compliant opportunity in a business that provides online tickets for Chelsea FC [stadium tours], Twickenham Stadium and Liverpool's Cavern Club.

Steve Talbot, investment director at Growthdeck, said making an investment in online ticketing platform WebTicketManager is attractive because of the business’s organic growth since being founded in 2012.’

Additionally, our latest research, which focuses on the turnover growth of UK amusement parks and private museums – part of WTM’s existing, and target, market – was covered in print in the i newspaper over the weekend, and has also appeared on the Scotsman website.

The Top UK amusement parks and private museums* have seen average turnover grow 4.8% and 3.5% respectively in the last year as millennial consumers increasingly look for new experiences in their time off. The growth rates of the top amusement parks and museums have outpaced current UK GDP growth, which grew just 1.2% in 2017-18.
