What kind of events will be on the roster?
• Once a member, you will be able to buy tickets to all the fabulous events we have in store, directly through the member’s portal
• Thanks to everyone who attended our Why Not People Launch Event on 1st July at Troxy in London. Next Event Coming Soon!
• As the roster gets busier, you will start to see 2 different kinds of events around the UK
1) Why Not People gigs - events we put on ourselves which are only available to our members and their mates
2) Why Not People areas - these will be areas within existing gigs and festivals that we will transform into a Why Not People space for members and their mates
How will your experience be enhanced?
• Your experience starts when you are able to book your tickets online, rather than calling a separate phone line, and you get to book for your friends too!
• All our venues will be tailored to provide the best access into and throughout the venue, with all the extra facilities needed
• You won’t be separated out from the crowds and your family and friends… you will all get to sit together, in the best seats for all of you, right in all the action
• We are trialling SubPac’s with members who have sensory impairments. It is essentially a slim speaker that will be in selected seats, that vibrates with the sound of the music. It gives a totally new way to experience sound
• We are combining BSL with Dance, and will be trying to find creative ways to ensure the gig is enjoyed by everyone
