How do audiences engage with your programme?

The Clearview team has been following 1.5 million ticket buyers as they engage with the programmes at 25 venues in Wales. These individuals bought 11.5 million tickets worth £130 million for 119,000 events over the last seven years so we can get a good insight into what they are choosing to see and do. Here are some of the findings.

Audience choice (Cardiff venues)

Audiences in Cardiff have so much to choose from. What happens when audiences have a choice? Do they stick with their favourite venue? Or do they cherry pick their favourite artforms regardless of where it's on?

Audiences for dance

Do you and your colleagues talk about “the dance audience”?  If you’ve got a dance event coming up, do you contact everyone who has bought tickets for dance in the past year?  The data from Audience Insight suggests you should think again.

Family audiences

You and your colleagues have bought the booster cushions, introduced a child friendly menu to your café and set up the buggy park. But how much do you know about the families who flock to the rich array of events you’ve designed just for them? Probably less than you think.

Households ID

In autumn 2016, several venues joined the Audience Insight Wales project using a ticketing system that hasn’t been involved before. This means that the way households are identified has had to change.
