My Local Box Office (MLBO) offers charities, community groups, artists, and small businesses an affordable service to sell tickets online to their audience. MLBO is based in the Tendring District, but provides the service across the East Anglia region. We provide a bespoke service with personal support for individuals and organisations looking to expand their reach and attract more sales for their events.

What Makes MLBO different    to other ticketing platforms?

For many organisations it is not just about the costs of selling tickets online. Setting up events on other platforms takes a considerable amount of time and admin. Not to mention a degree of technical proficiency to manage those events and deal with changes/cancellations etc.

My local box office takes the stress out of the set up and administration of online sales. You simply provide us with your event details and we will do everything else. 

What is included?

As well as your event being set up on your own dedicated webpage, all packages come with a level of marketing and advertising as standard. Your event will be shared across the following:

  • Regular MLBO social media platforms and social chat forums / pages across the region: including tag and links to your established pages.

  • Regular email newsletters going out to all users.

  • Distribution to several publications and listing platforms across the county. 

  • PR will be developed with your approval and sent to local newspapers and magazine publications. 


How does it work?

Net profit to organiser: £1872 (average cost per ticket £0.64 per customer) Many of our organisers pass this cost on through a box office fee added at the checkout. Please note that you will not be charged a commission rate on refunded tickets but a transaction fee will still be charged for these tickets.
