ABOUT US

Steve Stubbs started Backstagepass.biz as a tiny blog in 2012, reviewing shows in the West End and a few gigs in London. Through his contacts in the PR and Marketing industry, the site has steadily grown over the years. With teams in London, Scotland and the North East of England, Backstage Pass covers theatre, concerts, Comedy, Opera and other events all over the UK.

Current trends

The website is constantly gaining hits online and readership.

PR and artists alike enjoy reading our honest reviews of their shows.

We did a podcast in 2018, which hit the iTunes Podcast charts in its first week, and after that, our presenter got her own show on BBC Radio York.

We sell tickets online to all London Theatre shows, and we also affiliate with Ticketmaster UK, See Tickets and Lastminute.com for all other events.

WHY RADIO?

Radio is a great medium to be heard online alongside our website and social media channels.

We will be starting an online only radio station, which will be available on TuneIn, smart speakers, Sonos etc.

Our programming will be a mix of music shows, celebrity interviews, guest presenters, competitions, unplugged sessions, and coverage from live events.

Think of it as a mixture of BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 1, Radio X and Encore Radio, all rolled into one!

With your investment, we will be able to buy the equipment needed to run the studio, software, hardware, music licenses from PRS and PPL, news and commercial production, radio station jingles and idents, marketing, PR and presenter fees!

If the listening figures start heading into the thousands, we can then look at hitting DAB, FM and Satellite broadcasting
