North West online event guide and ticketing outlet, Skiddle, has opened its first office in London.

The new space in Camden will be staffed by a dedicated London team, led by Head of New Business, Duncan King. King joins from 360, AEI Media and Turn First Artists.

“Picking up the keys to Skiddle’s new London premises was a milestone achievement for our business. We have always had strong relationships and accounts in the Capital, however this new investment will enable us to grow the business – increasing the number of venues, promoters and artists we work with and expand our remit with the accounts we currently manage,” explained Co-Founder and Director, Ben Sebborn.

“This invaluable on-the-ground presence will also allow us to cultivate new relationships more efficiently and effectively; surrounded by a wealth of iconic music venues, established and grassroots artists and unrivalled live entertainment.”

Based in Preston, with a development hub in Liverpool and an office in Manchester, Skiddle says it’s had its most successful year to date with a 30% increase in turnover and gross ticket sales of £60m.

The office is set to officially open on Monday.
