It is a great idea to have the box office for the Fringe in the station according to staff at Car Hire Glasgow Airport and will be advising any car hire customers in the city at the time to check out a show or two.
The programme for the Fringe Festival has been officially launched with a ticket office again being placed in Glasgow this year. This is due to sales at the Glasgow based ticket office increasing 38% last year on the year before when it was first launched. This means for the third consecutive year a box office will be placed at Queen Street Station.
Kath Mainland, chief executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, which runs the Fringe, said “We are delighted to be working alongside First ScotRail to bring the box office to Queen Street Station. We know there is demand for it in Glasgow so it makes perfect sense to offer this service again to help audiences from west Scotland to make their Fringe experience as easy and enjoyable as possible. We are incredibly grateful to First ScotRail for giving us the space in Queen Street Station to provide this facility and connect audiences from across Scotland with everything that is happening at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year.”
The Fringe Festival is also likely to benefit from visitors to the Commonwealth Games with a spokesman for the festival saying, “We are part of the Culture 2014 programme that accompanies the Commonwealth Games and are very excited by the opportunities the Games coming to Glasgow presents for us.”
The box office at Queen Street Station will open on July 25th and remain open for the duration of the festival, which runs from August 1st to 25th. This means Glasgow customers will be able to buy tickets in person, or collect pre-paid on-line booked tickets. Steve Montgomery, managing director of First ScotRail, said “We are delighted to again host the Fringe’s box office at Queen Street Station. We know a lot of our customers travelling between Glasgow and Edinburgh during August will want to take in some shows at what is the biggest and most exciting festival in the world. First ScotRail is committed to helping make the experience as smooth as possible.”
