How are you going to sell your Christmas Grotto tickets in 2019?

How are you going to sell your Christmas Grotto tickets in 2019?

The year just started, but Garden Connect is already thinking about Christmas: how are you going to sell your Grotto tickets this year? Selling tickets at the centre can be time-consuming, it’s difficult to monitor your capacity, and consumers don’t want to visit your centre just to buy a ticket. Be ahead of the struggles this year and start selling tickets online!

The online ticketing module Garden Connect developed is branded in your style and can be implemented into any website.


Garden Connect offers a comprehensive solution to sell tickets online:

  • Designed in your own brand
    Designed in your own brand and suitable for small and big events and garden centres.
  • Easy & secure online payment
    Your customers directly pay into your own online payment account, like Sagepay or Worldpay.
  • Integrated into your website
    Easy integration into any website. Smooth order process on mobile, tablet and desktop
  • Free support
    Sometimes you need some assistance, which is why we have included support within all our services.   

On top of that, we can integrate your online ticketing service with any epos you’re using.

How does it work?

Some garden centres have ongoing events, like a Sunday afternoon high tea which is available every week. Others are having seasonal events, like a Grotto or Easter Egg hunt. Regardless of the number of visitors you expect, our flexible ticket solution will fit your requirements. We cover everything via our online ticketing service:

  • Online sales
  • Phone / offline sales
  • Upselling
  • One-off events or ongoing table bookings
  • Secure payments
  • Digital tickets
  • E-mail reminders and follow up

Scan app

You can export all data for each event to Excel to process it. You can also use the free scan app we provide. This Android- and iPhone based app allows you to scan barcodes and grant customers access to your events.

A smart and easy way to scan tickets helping you to save time and to offer a smooth entrance.

During the 2018 season, many garden centres have already been using the ticketing service to sell tickets for their Grotto, a circus, ice rink and restaurants. The upcoming months new garden centres will start using the service for a personal shopper service, gardening workshop and events during the National Children’s Gardening Week.

Since our solution is flexible, you can run any event you want on it!
