London Theatre Direct is excited to play an important role in improving the ticket buying experience and helping ensure that when theatres reopen, following the closures resulting from COVID-19, access will be safer and more secure through the use of digital tickets,” said Francis Hellyer, co-founder and CEO of London Theatre Direct. 

London Theatre Direct has been at the forefront of technological innovation within the ticketing industry helping theatregoers take full advantage of new payment options, electronic ticket delivery and convenient mobile and voice-activated ticket purchase options.”

To support tickets in Apple Wallet on iPhone and Apple Watch, London Theatre Direct is working closely with theatres, over 150 of which London Theatre Direct connects to directly via seamless integrations. Tickets in Apple Wallet are not only convenient, they also provide additional security as theatre-goers no longer have to worry about misplacing or losing their physical tickets, forgetting to print their tickets at home before attending a show or waiting for tickets to arrive in the post.
