Box Office & Ticketing


Since 2020, Leicester Comedy Festival and The UK Kids' Comedy Festival have operated an e-ticketing system and are now completely paperless. 

Our Box Office is hosted by Eventotron, which is the same system that we use to register shows. Using the same system makes it very easy for checking ticket sales and there is even a door check in tool that you can use for checking in audiences. If you want us to set up regular ticket sales reports email and we will arrange it for you. 

To take part in Leicester Comedy Festival, you need to allocate at least 30% of your tickets to be sold by our Box Office. ​The 30% allocation is a minimum requirement to take part in the Festival; that means that customers will be able to buy tickets directly through our website. You can choose to increase that allocation at any point in the run up to the festival. The Festival does not keep any of your sales income; the ticket income will be transferred to you after the Festival (this can be the act, or the promoter, depending on the bank details provided on Eventotron when registering the event).  The ticket settlements usually take about 6-8 weeks after the Festival to reach your account: please bear in mind that there are more than 800 shows to settle. When planning your cash flow and budget, expect your ticket income to be settled by the end of April. Please check which bank details you are uploading to Eventotron as they cannot be changed and it may affect the speed at which we process your ticket settlement if they are incorrect.

At any point between your registration and the settlement, feel free to get in touch with us if there are any issues. Our Box Office team are very responsive, but you can also contact the Festival team with any questions.
