One of the issues that our lot (sorry if already mentioned, it's a long thread) have with Ticketmaster sales is access to a bank account. For the CheckaTrade we sold face to face from the Ticket Office on the Wednesday and Thursday (Additional tickets available ). I was down both days you needed a customer number but there was a steady queue to the door both days. 75% of the transactions were cash. They even designated 2 of the windows as cash only. This surfaces whenever fuel poverty is on the agenda. The number without accounts in the Northeast is considerably higher than the national average.
